Ben Duckett and Steven Mullaney will be supporting the Professional Cricketers’ Trust via the charity’s Club Together for Cricket campaign throughout the 2021 domestic season and beyond.
The pair have signed up to the initiative, which allows members of the public to donate to the Trust via the goalgiving platform for runs scored, wickets taken and catches claimed by fundraisers throughout the season.
The platform allows donors to choose how much they want to give for every action, put a cap on their fundraising and make a one-off donation to the Trust.
The Trust is one of professional cricket’s leading charities, offering life-changing - and often life-saving - support to Professional Cricketers’ Association (PCA) members and their immediate families when they need it most.
During a record-breaking 2020, the players’ charity supported 94 individuals in the area of mental health alone, bringing the total number supported since 2015 to 426. A further 20 cases were also supported in the area of hardship.
The Trust offers support ranging from emotional counselling through to the provision of specialist medical equipment, providing a vital support network for players in a sport where the average retirement age is just 26.
Stuart Broad supported the charity during his testimonial year in 2019, explaining that the charity is “critical for players” before donating to the Trust.
