The relationship between Cure Leukaemia and Warwickshire started back in 2006 when Ashley Giles MBE chose to support the charity in his Benefit year. The former Ashes winner and current England One-Day coach has since become a Cure Leukaemia Patron along with his former Warwickshire and England teammate Dougie Brown.
The charity has been chosen by a number of Warwickshire players for their Benefit years - Jim Troughton, Jonathan Trott and most recently Ian Westwood have chosen to support Cure Leukaemia. It is a relationship that continues to flourish with Cure Leukaemia continuing to benefit from the annual "Cure Leukaemia Day" which is held during marquee fixtures at the famous Test venue, raising a fantastic £25,000.
James McLaughlin Chief Executive of Cure Leukaemia said,
"We're grateful for the continued support of Warwickshire County Cricket Club, who have raised more than £125,000 through partnership activities in the last three years to support our life-saving work across the West Midlands."
