Cricket for a cause

Join us at the Medibank Celebrity 20Twenty Cricket Match in support of The Luke Batty Foundation

Celebrities are lining up in support of the Luke Batty Foundation to play in the first Medibank Celebrity 20Twenty cricket match.

All proceeds from the match – to be played on Sunday 21 February in Melbourne – will go towards the Luke Batty Foundation to help support women and children affected by family violence.

Standing together against family violence 

Celebrities who have signed up to play include Carrie Bickmore, comedian Peter Helliar, retired AFL star Adam Goodes, The Biggest Loser’s Commando Steve, Bachelor Sam Wood and former Olympian Leisel Jones.

Medibank CEO George Savvides says Medibank is proud to be the major partner of this event and to support the Luke Batty Foundation.

“Sadly, family violence does not discriminate. That’s why it’s so important that we continue to come together as a community to take a stand, raise awareness, and effect change.”

 “Our goal is to end family violence using the voice of survivors. Together we can take a stand and make a difference.”

The Luke Batty Foundation was established in 2014 by Australian of the Year Rosie Batty to raise awareness of family violence and to work with government organisations until family violence is no longer a subject that happens behind closed doors.

Rosie says it is her mission to empower women, give children a voice and hold perpetrators accountable for their actions.

“Our goal is to end family violence using the voice of survivors and ensure the current statistics are dramatically reduced. Together we can take a stand and make a difference.”
