Supporters are being encouraged to wear yellow in support of the Colin Bloomfield Melanoma Appeal at the NatWest T20 Blast fixture versus Leicestershire Foxes on Thursday 18 June; 7pm start.

The match, which will be the Club’s Colin Bloomfield Melanoma Appeal Fixture, will raise awareness for the appeal and 10% of all advanced tickets purchased will be donated to the appeal.

Supporters who buy tickets in advance will also save £4 for each adult ticket purchased.

The Colin Bloomfield Melanoma Appeal was launched by BBC Radio Derby after Colin, who sadly passed away in April, was diagnosed with Melanoma in 2013. His openness and dedication to raise awareness of the disease touched thousands of listeners, with the appeal raising to date over £100,000.

There will also be a chance for supporters to get a free skin check by Dermatologists from the Derby Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust as part of the night.

The Derbyshire Cricket Board – who are the governing body for all aspects of recreational cricket in Derbyshire – will also be promoting sun safety to thousands of children as part of their programme which will see them visit over 200 schools promoting cricket participation.

So join us for a night of exciting NatWest T20 Blast cricket, wear the colour yellow and show your support for the Colin Bloomfield Melanoma Appeal.
