CONNECTING COMMUNITIES 2022

Middlesex Cricket have a proud history of working in our community to use cricket as a tool to unite Londoners of all backgrounds. 

This year, we will launch our new charitable arm, Middlesex in the Community, which will enable us to provide more opportunities to the people who need them most. 

To celebrate this launch, and begin fundraising, the inaugural campaign for the charity, Connecting Communities, begins on Sunday 19th June with the Middlesex Men unveiling a limited-edition playing shirt to be worn across our remaining Home T20 matches. 

This exclusive Nike shirt is inspired by London’s Street art and the campaign will centre around the communities and people that make up Middlesex. 

As part of the campaign, Middlesex will be engaging with local communities across the county, creating positive experiences through cricket to bring Londoners, and especially the next generation of cricketers and fans, closer to the club. 

Key to the charity is the fundraising that will allow us to continue and grow our work in the community. There are numerous ways that individuals and businesses can support Middlesex in the Community, including:

  • Place a Bid in the Auction of the Players’ Signed Shirts
  • Make a Donation direct to the campaign
  • Make a Pledge to Provide an Opportunity e.g. a bursary for a child to access All Stars Cricket
  • Purchase a limited-edition replica shirt with 100% of the profits pledged to the charity
