Cricket United shirts raise over £5,400
This year’s signed match shirts from Cricket United day have raised a combined total of over £5,444.05 – leaving the Lord’s Taverners with over £1,800 once the money has been divided amongst the three Cricket United charities.
The top selling shirt from the auction was that of new England Captain Joe Root, whose shirt sold in the end for £755.05. Other highlights from the auction included Root’s predecessor as captain Alistair Cook, whose shirt returned £701 for the three charities. Not far behind again were fast bowling duo James Anderson and Stuart Broad, whose shirts came to raise £695 and £645 respectively. Man of the Match Ben Stokes saw his shirt raise £565, while Toby Roland-Jones rounded off an impressive start to test match cricket with his shirt raising £355.
Thanks to all who bid on the shirts for playing a role in raising a fantastic sum of money for three great causes. For more information on Cricket United please visit the website here, or for a recap of Cricket United Day 2017 please see our report of the day here.
