Warwickshire and England opening batsman Dom Sibley’s Test match runs now have an added layer of importance.
Starting with this week’s Test series in Sri Lanka, Dom is part of a fundraising campaign that is based on each Test run he scores for the remainder of 2021 to help him raise funds for the Lord’s Taverners charity.
As well as being a close friend of Warwickshire County Cricket Club and Warwickshire Cricket Board, the Lord’s Taverners is the UK’s leading youth cricket and disability sports charity.
It has introduced the Runs for Change campaign to support their life-changing cricket programmes for disadvantaged and disabled young people during a time when the majority of their usual fundraising opportunities have been limited due to the pandemic.
All money raised by Sibley in 2021 will go towards the cricket programmes delivered by the Lord’s Taverners in conjunction with Warwickshire Cricket board throughout the county.
National disability cricket programmes, Super 1s and Table Cricket, and disadvantaged cricket programme Wicketz, have had a huge impact on young people throughout Warwickshire and donations will go a long way to giving more young people access to the game and all the benefits that brings.
