Trade Nation Announce New Donations to the Essex Cricket Foundation


Essex Cricket are delighted to announce the furthering of our rewarding partnership with Trade Nation. This year, Trade Nation are pledging their support to the Club’s charity foundation. The leading trading services provider will donate £50 at the end of the season for each ‘6’ hit by the players across all tournaments.

The decision marks Trade Nation’s determination to build on their existing accomplishments with the Club and signals their strong desire to deepen the connection between county cricket and local communities. Essex Cricket is intensely passionate about creating unforgettable experiences for its thousands of members and supporters while giving it all on the green. This ambition is mirrored by Trade Nation, who put customer experience at the heart of what they do — the continued support from the broker further cements the shared values at the heart of this partnership.

The Club’s foundation run a variety of different initiatives across Essex, Suffolk, Norfolk, Cambridgeshire and Bedfordshire. The Club are working hard to increase inclusivity in cricket, with plans to establish two new Women’s Premier Leagues to make Essex the number 1 region for the sport in the UK. Alongside this, the Club aims to enhance facilities across London and boost opportunities for schools, putting well-being and health at the centre of the campaign.

Trade Nation’s CEO, Stuart Lane said: “Trade Nation is very proud to be offering this new series of donations for the Essex Cricket Foundation. The dedication they have to their local community proves to us that they share our emphasis on the importance of giving back, supporting both their members and the wider community. We’re excited to take our partnership with Essex Cricket further this year by locking in these donations for fans and charities, and we’re thrilled that our collaboration with the Club through the foundation has let us connect with their fans and local community, and promote greater inclusivity through the foundation”.

John Stephenson, Chief Executive & Interim Chair for Essex Cricket said:

“We are so pleased that Trade Nation has selected the Essex Cricket Foundation as their charity to support this year.

After a global pandemic, it is so important to bring the community together and enjoy team sports once more. We wish to encourage new faces of all ages and abilities into the world of cricket and offer them the inclusive support they need to develop a true passion for the game.”
