Kent stars support Lord’s Taverners Runs and Wickets Change campaign

Kent’s Heino Kuhn and Alex Blake have signed up to raise funds for the Lord’s Taverners charity through their Runs for Change campaign to support disadvantaged and disabled young people in the county.

Kuhn will be helping the UK’s leading youth cricket and disability sports charity raise money with every run he scores in the Bob Willis Trophy and Vitality Blast for the remainder of the 2020 season. Blake will be doing the same for this season’s Vitality Blast.

The two Kent stars join their colleagues in the England squad, Joe Denly and Zak Crawley, in supporting this new style of fundraising at a time when the charity’s activity has been hampered by Covid-19. Denly and Crawley’s England runs in 2020 have seen over £3,700 raised for the charity so far with Crawley’s record breaking 267 contributing almost £1,000 to that total alone.

You can sponsor each run they score for as little, or as much as you 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.

All monies raised with go towards the Lord’s Taverners charity cricket programmes which support some of the most marginalised and at-risk young people in the UK using sport and recreation to build links between communities and encouraging groups to play sport together.
