Lancashire Cricket to offer 5,000 tickets to NHS staff
The Club will offer tickets to NHS staff for a Vitality Blast match this season a gesture of support for their ongoing heroic efforts
Lancashire Cricket has committed to offering up to 5,000 tickets to NHS staff to a Vitality Blast match this season at Emirates Old Trafford as a gesture of support for their ongoing heroic efforts in the fight against Coronavirus.
The Club will offer NHS workers the opportunity to attend a game with their families, with dates to be confirmed once the cricket schedule has been finalised.
Details on how to redeem tickets will be confirmed in due course after the announcement of the schedule.
It is the first of the Club’s commitments to honour and thank those fighting on the front line to keep our Members, supporters, staff and stakeholders safe.
Lancashire Cricket Chief Executive, Daniel Gidney, said: “This is a small token of our appreciation towards those who are doing themselves, the NHS and the whole country proud in fighting this disease.
“Cricket takes a seat on the backburner at this moment in time for obvious reasons, but we hope to be able to provide some entertainment for those who have worked heroically during a national health crisis.
“The greatest way we can continue to support the NHS at this time, however, is to continue to follow the Government advice on good hygiene and social distancing. Stay home and save lives.
“We stand with all of our colleagues in the NHS at the most difficult of times and continue to wish everyone good health during this ongoing period.”
