Derby County’s match against Leeds United saw organisers of a charity cricket tournament present the Derby County Community Trust with a donation of £4000.

Back in July, Derby County’s President & Chief Executive Sam Rush, along with former players such as Roger Davies, Kevin Hector and BBC Radio Derby’s Craig Ramage took to the field against Spondon CC to raise funds for both the Community Trust’s Disability programme and the Holbrook school for Autism.

The annual fund-raiser, organised by Neil Bennett from Spondon, was a huge success with over 1,000 people attending and raising vital funds.

Following the donation, Head of Derby County Community Trust Simon Carnall, said: “We would like to take this opportunity to thank Spondon Cricket Club for hosting and participating in the game, all of the businesses who contributed to the raffle and in particular to Neil Bennett who organised the whole event and continues to be a huge supporter of the Trust.

“The funds raised will be crucial in allowing our disability sport programmes to flourish within our local community.”
