LCCC Launches Red Rose Floods Appeal


LANCASHIRE COUNTY Cricket Club in conjunction with the LCCC Foundation and Lancashire Cricket Board have launched the Red Rose Floods Appeal to raise an initial target of £10,000 which will be used to help communities in the county that have been badly affected by the recent floods.


LCCC Cricket Director and Head Coach Ashley Giles said: "Our thoughts are with those communities who have suffered with the flooding especially at this time of year.

"Together with our Foundation and Cricket Board we have launched the Red Rose Floods Appeal on JustGiving to help raise crucial funds that will support people in Lancashire who have suffered real heartache and misery due to the floods.


"We hope that as a famous Lancashire institution we can encourage people to dig deep and donate what they can spare to help their fellow Lancastrians in their hour of need."

The Club, Foundation and Board will also be working together on a number of other  initiatives in the coming days and weeks to help support the communities.

People can donate to the Red Rose Floods Appeal by visiting or by sending in a cheque to the LCCC Foundation at Emirates Old Trafford, Manchester, M16 0PX. (Please indicate that the donation is for the Red Rose Floods Appeal).

All funds raised will be distributed via the LCCC Foundation to carefully selected recipients who have been badly affected by the floods in Lancashire.

The LCB and LCCC Foundation recently came together to donate £1,500 towards cricket clubs affected by the floods caused by Storm Desmond earlier this month.

Eight clubs’ facilities in Cumbria and one in Lancashire were severely affected by those floods.

Clubs that were severely affected include Appleby CC, Carlisle CC, Cockermouth CC, Edenhall CC, Kendal CC, Keswick CC, Rockcliffe CC and Workington CC in Cumbria and Garstang CC in Lancashire.

All these clubs will need a substantial amount of work and resource to get them in any position to host any cricket in 2016.
