Celebrating the cricket community’s response to COVID-19

We are Together Through This Test. The cricket community has come together to support each other and the nation through the COVID-19 pandemic, with over 200 initiatives running to support local communities.

Players and clubs – both professional and recreational – are going above and beyond in their efforts to boost morale, raise money and help those most in need during this difficult time.

From supporting vulnerable members with phone calls from county cricket stars through the #MakeThatCall initiative, to delivering food to NHS workers and homeless charities around the country.

The club has helped support the local community effort led by Georgie Tindall by providing PPE supplies to give to the NHS and local care homes.

Martyn Hall is providing online sessions for the colts section, which can be found on this website.

As well as looking out for others, there are also over 100 initiatives to help people look after themselves, with mental and physical health taking centre stage. Younger cricket fans are also being engaged through education programmes and shirt design challenges.
