“The Cambridge business community has proved itself to be hugely resilient over recent years and always steps up when it comes to supporting good causes such as those who stand to gain from this event. Our shared vision is that this is an event for everyone, and we look forward to a fun-filled afternoon and some high-quality cricket!”

Alistair Rumbelow, group CEO at COEL, added: “COEL wanted to host an event with Carter Jonas which will raise funds for our two incredible charities but, in the process, we wanted to raise spirits as well.

“Times have been tough for many people but sport provides entertainment which everyone can enjoy; for that reason, it was important for us to open the game to all, and hope people will come and enjoy the afternoon. We also hope that the cricket game raises awareness of these two brilliant charities which are thoroughly deserving of all the funds raised.”
