Joe Denly Gets Behind Lord's Taverners Runs for Change Campaign
England batsman and Lord’s Taverners ambassador Joe Denly is supporting the charity’s first ever Runs for Change campaign - giving fans the chance to raise money for the UK’s leading youth cricket and disability sports charity with every run he scores in Test matches for England during 2020.
Denly is kindly supporting this new way of fundraising while also sporting one of the charity’s stripy bat grips which he has used in all cricket since the summer of 2018. He began the campaign in the Boxing Day Test match against South Africa and his 150 runs over the course of the first two Test matches have already raised over £780 for the cause.
Using the fundraising platform GoalGiving, fans can sponsor each run he scores for as little, or as much as they 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. Currently Joe is set to raise £3.50 per run for the campaign as the series continues in South Africa this week.
England’s number three said: “I truly believe in the Lord’s Taverners as the opportunities and support they provide young people with across the country really does make a difference. Please do give generously, whether its 1p or £1 per run, to help raise valuable funds for the cause. Thank you for your support.”
