The Northumberland Cricket Board are co-ordinating a charitable collection of old kit on behalf of an organisation called ‘Project Front Foot’, who are calling for donations of cricket gear in both children’s and adult sizes throughout January and February, which will be donated to Afghan refugees after an approach by the German Cricket Federation.

If you are replacing any of your equipment ahead of the new season, or have old kit to spare that you would be able to donate, please get in touch with the NCB (ian.wardle@northumberlandcricketboard.co.uk) who will be able to pass your details on to Project Front Foot.

Please spread this message among your cricket-playing contacts and help support a worthy cause.
