CRICKET UNITES BEHIND CHARITY AUCTION

Signed shirts from England internationals Ben Stokes, Jofra Archer and Jack Leach are amongst the lots in an online charity cricket auction supported by all 18 first class counties in partnership with the ECB, PCA and MCC.

A catalogue of 62 lots are now open for bidding at cricketauction.co.uk where cricket fans can also secure international match hospitality experiences at Lord’s, Kia Oval, Trent Bridge, Edgbaston, Emerald Headingley and Emirates Old Trafford.

Somerset County Cricket Club have donated the following items to the auction:

  • Jack Leach’s match-worn England Test Shirt; Signed England Test Match shirt donated by Jack Leach. All proceeds from this lot will be donated to Love Musgrove – the official charity of Musgrove Park Hospital.

  • Limited edition Somerset Kukri NHS Shirt; Somerset County Cricket Club’s special edition shirt designed by Tom Clarke. All proceeds from this lot will be donated to Love Musgrove – the official charity of Musgrove Park Hospital.

  • Millichamp & Hall cricket bat signed by Jack Leach; Hand-signed bat from renowned bat makers Millichamp and Hall. All proceeds from this lot will be donated to Love Musgrove – the official charity of Musgrove Park Hospital.

The auction forms part of the Together Through This Test campaign, cricket’s co-ordinated response to Covid-19 that seeks to highlight initiatives across the professional and amateur game.

All donors have nominated a charitable cause to receive the proceeds from their lots.

Strategy Director Sarah Trunks said: “It’s been fantastic to collaborate with all First-Class Counties, the ECB, PCA and MCC to raise funds for many great causes. Cricket is certainly pulling together at this difficult time and we are delighted to support this auction. Our three items will hopefully bring further fundraising income for Love Musgrove, who we have worked very closely with over the last few months.”
