Welcome to our events gallery, where you can catch up on our previous events and see what events we have coming up.
The Mike Procter Foundation is delighted to be able to offer a series of virtual events in order to help raise much needed funds for the Foundation in place of the face to face events that would have taken place if circumstances were different. We are hosting a series of virtual events in partnership with the Cricket Society, Sounds Like A Plan Events and special guests. Mike talks through the highs and lows of his cricket career and reminisces about some of his finest achievements and disappointments with his guests. Details of the next event will be shared in due course.
In partnership with the Cricket Society and Sounds Like A Plan Events, we co-hosted the second in a series of talks by Mike Procter in conversation with his friends and former colleagues. The recording from the event can be viewed via this link: https://youtu.be/2ewaau6iogc
The event was divided into two sections. The first part featured Dr Ali Bacher who was Mike’s colleague and skipper during his curtailed Test Match career. The second part featured Mike’s former Gloucestershire team mates, fast bowler Jack Davey and wicketkeeper, Andy Brassington.
The Mike Procter Foundation would like to thank all of those who attended the event and those who made such generous donations to the charity’s work at Ottawa School, including the very generous donation of £1,000 by the Cricket Society.

This fascinating discussion and insight into events surrounding the fight against apartheid was kindly hosted and introduced by Her Excellency Nomatemba Tambo, South Africa’s High Commissioner to the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland.
