Trade Nation donate nearly £10,000 to local charities

Somerset County Cricket Club can today reveal that our Principal Vitality Blast Partner, Trade Nation have donated nearly £10,000 to local charities during this year’s competition.

The organisation has also donated their allocation of quarter-final tickets to the Love Musgrove charity.

At each of our home Vitality Blast group stage matches a Somerset player selected a charity, and Trade Nation once again donated £50 for every six and £150 for every ball that was struck out of the Cooper Associates County Ground.

In total £9,650 was raised which will be shared between the seven charities that our players selected.

The breakdown is as follows:

  • £1,250 Sporting Minds (Will Smeed)
  • £1,400 HD Livin’ (Roelof van der Merwe)
  • £1,400 Mondli Khumalo Fundraiser (Tom Banton)
  • £1,450 NSPCC (Marchant de Lange)
  • £1,500 Movember (Ben Green)
  • £1,650 Somerset Cricket Foundation (Jack Brooks)
  • £1,000 CCS (The Community Council for Somerset) (Craig Overton)

Rilee Rossouw was the player who raised the most money, courtesy of his 22 sixes!

Stuart Lane, CEO of Trade Nation commented “Our partnership with Somerset CCC has been immensely rewarding and we are thrilled to be able to donate to a broad range of brilliant charities that are close to the hearts of the players. We have worked with Somerset for the past three years, and have been continually impressed by their hard work, determination, and community engagement, and are thus proud to be giving back to their community in this meaningful way,”

SCCC Commercial Director, Caroline Herbert added: “Once again, Trade Nation’s generosity and their desire to give something back to the local community has been absolutely sensational.

“We are proud to be partnered with an organisation who have such an unwavering desire to support good causes within the region.”
