Glamorgan aid Pakistan floods appeal
Glamorgan will use the two England v Pakistan NatWest International T20 matches, to be held at the SWALEC Stadium in the first week of September, to help raise money for the Pakistan floods appeal.
The recent floods have been recorded as the worst for over 80 years, affecting an area larger than Wales, with at least 1,600 people having lost their lives and many more still missing.
As many as 20million have been affected by the disaster and it is feared that over six million children are now at risk of malnutrition, diarrhoea and pneumonia.
In addition to having bucket collections at the matches on Sunday 5 September at 2.30pm and Tuesday 7 at 6pm, the club has confirmed that 10% of all future ticket sales will also be donated to the flood appeal.
Those attending the matches will also be able to make donations at a designated Islamic Relief marquee situated at the ground.
Glamorgan Cricket chief executive Alan Hamer said: “It is extremely distressing to witness on the news the devastation caused by the recent floods in Pakistan.
“Millions of people need our help and the club recognises that the forthcoming England v Pakistan matches provide an opportunity to raise much needed money for the appeal.”
Tickets for the NatWest International T20 series are on sale now at www.glamorgancricket.com, by calling 02920 419311 or from the SWALEC Stadium.
