Lancashire Cricket are giving away tickets to NHS staff as thanks for their heroic work in the fight against coronavirus.

Up to 5,000 tickets will be available, allowing NHS staff and their families to attend a Vitality Blast T20 game at Old Trafford this season.

Lancashire Cricket Chief Executive Daniel Gidney said: “This is a small token of our appreciation towards those who are doing themselves, the NHS and the whole country proud in fighting this disease.

“Cricket takes a seat on the backburner at this moment in time for obvious reasons, but we hope to be able to provide some entertainment for those who have worked heroically during a national health crisis.

“The greatest way we can continue to support the NHS at this time, however, is to continue to follow the Government advice on good hygiene and social distancing. Stay home and save lives.

“We stand with all of our colleagues in the NHS at the most difficult of times and continue to wish everyone good health during this ongoing period.”

Dates and details on how to redeem tickets will be confirmed once this season’s cricket schedule has been finalised.
