Lancashire Cricket are offering 5,000 tickets to NHS staff who are working tirelessly during the coronavirus crisis.

NHS staff will be able to attend a Vitality Blast fixture at Emirates Old Trafford with their families this summer. The exact fixture is unknown with the season on hold until at least the end of May.

The club haven’t announced how to avail of the offer but have said that more information will be released in due course.

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.”
