Trent Bridge are hosting a joint-charity dinner in aid of the Trent Bridge Community Trust and the Broad Appeal.The black-tie event, priced £850 plus VAT for a table of ten, will take place on Thursday 16 June in the Derek Randall Suite at Trent Bridge, starting at 6.45pm.
It will provide a highly exclusive opportunity to hear first-hand from two of Nottinghamshire and world cricket’s most interesting and successful characters, as well as a drinks reception in the historic Long Room and a four-course dinner with fine wines and coffee.
Chris Broad, whose 15-year career with Nottinghamshire and Gloucestershire saw him earn England selection on 59 occasions, continues to be involved in the world game as a match referee.
His son, Stuart, earned his place in Trent Bridge and English cricket folklore with a series-defining spell of 8-15 in August 2015.
The 29-year-old went on to spearhead England to further Test glory in South Africa, taking 6-17 in the decisive Test match in Johannesburg.
Broad, who made his Test debut in 2007 and has now taken 333 wickets at the highest level, is currently the world’s number-one bowler in the red-ball format.
With the Broad Appeal raising funds and awareness for the Motor Neurone Disease Association, and the Trent Bridge Community Trust changing the lives of disadvantaged young people in Nottinghamshire, those that attend will also be supporting two excellent causes that continue to have a profound effect on the lives of thousands of people.
The evening will conclude with a charity auction featuring unique money-can’t-buy prizes, with all proceeds split between the two charities.
Individual places are available on shared tables, priced £85 plus VAT.
Seats can be secured online now, or by calling Trent Bridge’s events team on 0844 811 8712.
