THE CAPTAIN - Sir Andrew Strauss #RedForRuth
Play • 1 hr 10 min

The second cricketing knight comes to the podcast to start our new series here on The Shackles Are Off, and what a legend he is too... Sir Andrew Strauss is a giant of the game, and was at the helm for arguably one of the best moments for England in cricketing history. 

Here he talks 10/11 Ashes (obviously!!), as well as his own cricketing journey, tells a few great tales... and more importantly talks about the upcoming #RedForRuth day, which celebrates and raises money for the Foundation that was set up in memory of his late wife Ruth Strauss. 

The death of a parent can be one of the most traumatic events experienced by a child in their lifetime. Especially when children are unprepared and unaware of the impending death, this can negatively impact their psychosocial wellbeing.

Get involved and help us by spreading the word on social media. We are here to help families facing grief and you can help us, help them. Ready to turn #RedforRuth and for the families that need our support?
