Lancashire Cricket donates surplus food to local charities
Lancashire Cricket has made a number of food donations within the local community following the cancellation of the fifth LV= Insurance Test Match between England and India at Emirates Old Trafford.
The game was due to run for five days from Friday 10 September to Tuesday 14 September but after the game was cancelled this morning, the Club donated all surplus, pre-prepared food for players, hospitality, and media guests to several local charities.
The charities include Mustard Tree, EatWell MCR, Open Kitchen, Keeping It Real 24/7, Two Brews Homeless Charity, Community Grocery and MGT Youth
Angela Hodson, Sales Director at Lancashire Cricket said: “We were bitterly disappointed to learn of the cancellation this morning, however it is comforting to know that this donation can help those who need it most.
“The Club had catering prepared for thousands of guests across five days and as soon as we received confirmation that the game was off, our thoughts turned to how we can quickly distribute our surplus food out into the community.
“Everybody at Emirates Old Trafford hopes that this small gesture can make a positive difference across our community this weekend.”
