Emirates Lockdown Heroes
EMIRATES AND LANCASHIRE CRICKET TEAM UP TO CELEBRATE LOCKDOWN HEROES
Lancashire Cricket and its principal partner, Emirates, have launched a new initiative to celebrate and reward 11 lockdown heroes with a money-can’t-buy-experience when Lancashire Lightening take on the Worcestershire Rapids in a Vitality Blast T20 at Emirates Old Trafford on July 1.
The Lockdown Heroes campaign seeks to find 11 people who have made a tangible difference to the national and local fight during the COVID-19 pandemic, including healthcare professionals, police officers, teachers and care home workers.
Emirates and Lancashire Cricket are calling for members of the public to nominate passionate Lancashire supporters who would be worthy recipients - be them colleagues, teammates family members or friends - via a dedicated website: Emirates Lockdown Heroes | Lancashire Cricket Club
The 11 winners will receive an unforgettable Emirates Old Trafford experience at the Vitality Blast T20 clash between when Lancashire Lightening and the Worcestershire Rapids on July 1.
The heroes will be honoured by the Lancashire players, who will each display the name of a winner on their shirts during the fixture, which will be screened live on Lancashire Cricket’s social media channels. The heroes will watch the game from the Emirates hospitality box and receive players signed, match-worn jerseys, with their names on.
Commenting on the initiative, Lancashire Cricket CEO, Daniel Gidney, said: “I’m thrilled we’ve been able to join forces with Emirates and create an unforgettable experience for 11 passionate and heroic Lancashire fans. This is our way to say thank you to a small selection of the millions of key workers up and down the country that we will forever be indebted to for their supreme efforts during the course of the pandemic. We encourage people to get nominating. It’s quick and easy but you can help provide a cricket-lover with a unique experience that we hope they will cherish.”
