New NZBCF Arrangement Due to Player Injuries
Gray-Nicholls Announce New NZBCF Arrangement Due to Player Injuries
MELBOURNE, Feb. 07 /Medianet International-AsiaNet/ --
New Zealand cricketers Daniel Vettori and Jacob Oram will not be playing in tonight’s Twenty20 match against England due to injury. Initially bat-sponsor GRAY-NICOLLS, was going to donate $200.00 to The New Zealand Breast Cancer Foundation (NZBCF) for every boundary these players scored in the Twenty20 matches this week. As neither player will be playing tonight, there is no opportunity for more funds to be donated to the NZBCF by GRAY-NICOLLS.
GRAY-NICOLLS however, is still committed to generating more interest and funds for the NZBCF and are proud to announce that the campaign will now run through all five One Day Internationals against England during February. For every boundary Daniel Vettori, Jacob Oram, Lou Vincent and Mathew Sinclair scores,GRAY-NICOLLS will donate $200.00 to the NZBCF, with a maximum donation of $10,000.00.
The partnership between GRAY-NICOLLS and the NZBCF was announced at a Press Conference with Daniel Vettori and Jacob Oram in Auckland on Wednesday 23 January.
GRAY-NICOLLS Pink Grips are now for sale in all good cricket retailers. For each grip sold, GRAY-NICOLLS will donate $1.00 to the NZBCF.
