Chairmen's Dinner Raises Money For Recreational Cricket

Former Notts and England batsman Chris Broad helped the Nottinghamshire Cricket Board to raise £1000 at a fundraising dinner that will benefit recreational cricket in Nottinghamshire.

Chris was joined by daughter Gemma at the event at Trent Bridge which also raised funds for the Broad Appeal, the organisation formed by the Broad family in memory of Miche Broad who sadly died after contracting motor neurone disease.
 
More than 140 guests enjoyed a three course dinner with Chris and Gemma hosting a question and answer session ahead of an auction of sporting memorabilia.

“Anything we can do to help raise the profile of motor neurone disease and help young cricketers is worthwhile,” said Chris, who has held four events in the space of two weeks in support of the Broad Appeal.
 
“The Broad Appeal has really taken off recently and we have been pleased that so many people have come forward with fund-raising ideas and allowed us to partner with them.
 
“The Nottinghamshire Cricket Board event was very well organised and a lot of fun and the support from Nottinghamshire’s recreational clubs was very pleasing.”
 
The Nottinghamshire Cricket Board is responsible for delivering recreational cricket across the county and appealed to member clubs to support the inaugural Chairman’s dinner. More than 140 people attended the event with auction lots including signed Nottinghamshire and England memorabilia.
