Glamorgan players support 'Runs and Wickets for Change' Lord's Taverners Fundraising

31 Jul 2020 | Community

Glamorgan batsmen David Lloyd and Kiran Carlson, as well as bowler Michael Hogan have signed up to raise funds for the Lord’s Taverners charity through their Runs and Wickets for Change campaign, supporting disadvantaged and disabled young people.

With the return of county cricket from Saturday 1st August, Carlson and Hogan will be helping raise money for the UK’s leading youth cricket and disability sports charity. This is especially important at a time when much of the charity’s activity has been affected by Covid-19. Sadly, David Lloyd will not be playing at the start of the season due to an injured foot, however he is receiving ongoing rehabilitation with the medical staff, and will be re-evaluated in a few weeks.

With every run or wicket these players score in throughout the summer, you can donate to raise money for cricket programmes in Wales such as Table Cricket and Wicketz. Starting with the Bob Willis Trophy, followed by the T20 Blast, the fundraiser encourages fans to sponsor each run they score, or wicket they take, for as little, or as much as they can give. Donators can also cap the maximum amount they wish to donate, and also may choose to donate for a just single match, month or the whole season.

All monies raised will 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.
