The ECB has joined forces with foodbank charity the Trussell Trust for a ‘cricket tea-a-thon’ to raise awareness of food poverty in the UK.

At Tea on day two of England’s #raisethebat Test against West Indies, cricket fans nationwide are invited to join a ‘virtual cricket tea’ – whether at home, work or elsewhere – and post photos of their efforts to social media using the hashtag #CricketTea.

Cricket clubs are also being encouraged to register as food collection points for those struggling to feed themselves in their local community.

Clubs can sign up here to receive a resource pack with everything they need to help out in their area.

Meanwhile, clubs can find their nearest Trussell Trust Collection Points here.

The initiative forms part of the ECB's Together Through This Test scheme, which has highlighted the work of the cricket community during the pandemic.

Nottinghamshire's support of those in food poverty has included preparing meals for Guru Nanak's Mission, while the Trent Bridge Community Trust have also helped to facilitate food deliveries.
