Islamic Relief’s UK Director, Imran Madden, says: “Nearly 800 million people have no access to clean water – a tragedy that silently claims the life of a child every single minute. Together we can bring clean water and fresh hope to some of the world’s poorest communities and we’re thrilled and honoured to have Edgbaston’s support for our fundraising campaign.
“Supporters always generate a fantastic atmosphere at internationals at Edgbaston, and whether you’re with the Barmy Army or the Stani Army, the Investec Test between England and Pakistan promises to be a great occasion for Birmingham’s cricket-mad community.”
ArnesPobric, Edgbaston Marketing Manager, says: “We are working closely with the local community and other key Birmingham institutions to build a legacy that sees more Asian cricket supporters play in local competitions and attend domestic and international matches at Edgbaston.
“Our work with Islamic Relief forms a key part of this and we are delighted to work with such a fantastic Birmingham-based charity, which does a huge amount of good work to overcome poverty around the world.”
England face Pakistan in the third Investec Test Match at Edgbaston from Wednesday 3 to Sunday 7 August 2016.
