Middlesex Twenty20 Cup Launch Day With Clare Tomlinson

On Monday 30th April 2007 Middlesex CCC will be unveiling their new and exclusive Twenty20 kit for the 2007 campaign, reflecting Middlesex’s partnership with Breakthrough Breast Cancer, the UK’s leading breast cancer charity.

The Middlesex squad will be joined by Sky Sports presenter Clare Tomlinson for the launch, after Clare showed her interest and support in what Middlesex are doing this year with Breakthrough Breast Cancer.

“I think this is a fantastic and unique way for a sports club such as Middlesex to support a charity and I am proud to be a part of raising the profile of the great work that Breakthrough are doing. Having a shirt especially designed for women as part of this initiative is tremendous and reflects the spirit of the Twenty20 Cup and it’s appeal to the whole family. They’re very flattering and a great way to support your county and your favourite charity all at once!”

The morning will not only be a unique photo opportunity with the Middlesex squad and Clare, but will also offer the chance to interview Middlesex’s returning world cup stars including Ed Joyce, Jamie Dalrymple and Eoin Morgan.

The photocall will take place at 10.30am on the Nursery Ground, Lord’s Cricket Ground, or in the Indoor School in the case of bad weather, and will be followed by a press conference at 11.30am in the Indoor School bar area, followed by a light lunch. There will also be the opportunity to watch players in the nets and conduct individual interviews.

The Twenty20 Cup zonal rounds take place between 22nd June and 6th July this summer. At all four of Middlesex’s home matches, including two at Lord’s Cricket Ground in conjunction with MCC, Breakthrough volunteers will be collecting donations from spectators and Breakthrough wristbands will be available throughout the ground for a suggested donation. For every replica of Middlesex’s Twenty20 shirt, male and female design, and cap sold this year a donation of £5 and £2 respectively, will be made to Breakthrough Breast Cancer.
