NATIONAL CRICKET AUCTION RAISES OVER £35,000 FOR GOOD CAUSES

NATIONAL CRICKET AUCTION RAISES OVER £35K FOR GOOD CAUSES

A national cricket-wide auction supported by all 18 first-class counties, the ECB, MCC and the PCA has raised more than £35,000 for charitable causes across the country.

The Together Through This Test auction closed to bidders at midday on Sunday 14 June, with the final fundraising total standing at £35,217.

Each donor nominated a charitable cause to benefit from the proceeds of their lots with auctioneers John Pye donating all of their fees.

The most hotly contested lot in the auction saw a hospitality package for next summer's Lord’s Test match between England and India going for an incredible total of £3,300.

Middlesex's two auction lots, a bundle of signed AB de Villiers items sold for £299, whilst our second auction lot, a hospitality package for four at a Middlesex Vitality Blast clash at Lord's next summer went for a whopping £1,350, with only three other lots raising a greater sum.

The proceeds of Middlesex's two lots will be shared equally between the club's two charity partners, The Felix Project and the Ruth Strauss Foundation, with each charity benefitting from £824.50.

Our thanks goes to everyone who kindly placed bids for these two auction lots and congratulations to the worthy winners of two outstanding auction prizes.
