Essex Captain Tom Westley, batsman Ryan Ten Doeschate and bowlers Jamie Porter and Aaron Beard have signed up to raise funds for the Lord’s Taverners charity through their Runs and Wickets for Change campaigns to support disadvantaged and disabled young people in the county.

Now county cricket has returned, Westley and Ten Doeschate will be helping the UK’s leading youth cricket and disability sports charity raise money with every run they score in the Bob Willis Trophy and T20 Blast during the shortened 2020 season.

Porter and Beard will be the first to replicate this fundraising for wicket taking, where you can donate to their fundraising pages per wicket they take in both of this year’s domestic competitions.

The four Essex stars join players from across the country in supporting this new style of fundraising at a time when the charity’s activity has been hampered by Covid-19.

You can sponsor each run they score, or wicket they take, 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.

For the past six months, employers and employees have been adapting to ways of working from home. The green light has now been given to many people to go back to offices safely. From flexible hours and staggered starting times to deep cleaning, we’re getting ready for new ways of working.
