England wicket-keeper Jos Buttler, who secured England’s maiden World Cup title last summer by running out Martin Guptill, is helping to raise money for Royal Brompton & Harefield Hospitals Charity.

Jos who started his international cricket career in 2008, has decided to put the shirt he wore in last summer's World Cup final victory up for auction, raising money for our Covid-19 Emergency Appeal. An appeal we had only just launched last week.                                                                                                                      

"I'm going to be auctioning my World Cup final shirt to raise funds for the Royal Brompton and Harefield Hospitals charity. Last week they launched an emergency appeal to provide life-saving equipment to help those affected during the Covid-19 outbreak.I really hope we can raise as much as possible and support you guys in this time of need.”

He kicked off the auction on eBay last night and just as fast as we type this news story the bids are coming in thick and fast. Currently the amount stands at a phenomenal £65,000. Our Charity team is totally bowled over by this incredible support and generosity which will help provide vital lifesaving equipment in the fight against Covid-19.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                

"I am overwhelmed by the generosity shown by Jos Buttler.

It’s incredible that his blue England Cricket shirt he wore to last year's World Cup final has already raised over £65,000.

Thank you, Jos you are amazing!"
