Derbyshire all-rounder Luis Reece has signed up to raise funds for the Lord’s Taverners charity through their Runs for Change campaign to support disadvantaged and disabled young people in the county.
When county cricket returns this tomorrow, Reece will be helping the UK’s leading youth cricket and disability sports charity raise money with every run he scores in the Bob Willis Trophy and T20 Blast during the shortened 2020 season.
Reece joins players from across the country in supporting this new style of fundraising at a time when the charity’s activity has been hampered by Covid-19.
You can sponsor each run he scores for as little, or as much as you like – and you can cap the maximum amount you’d like to donate, while also choosing whether you donate for a single match, month or year.
All monies raised with go towards the Lord’s Taverners charity cricket programmes which support some of the most marginalised and at-risk young people in the UK using sport and recreation to build links between communities and encouraging groups to play sport together.
You can also support the charity through social media, whether you can afford to donate or not, by sharing the above links and encouraging sign ups and tagging @lordstaverners.
