Last month we called you to action to support The David Setters Cricket Trophy, which returned to remarkable success on Friday June 24th at the HAC cricket grounds in London. This year the charity event raised over £22K, with an accumulative total for the Motor Neuron Disease Association of just over £125K since 2017! A superb effort from all involved, and a big thank you to everyone who supported us on the day.
Companies that competed for the trophy included KRM22, The London Metal Exchange, Euronext, ICE, Verne Global, and StoneX Group Inc. After both losing out in the 2021 Semi-Finals, London Metal Exchange and StoneX Group Inc had better luck this year and went head to head in the 2022 Grand Final. Congratulations to LME who went on to win, in what was a very close match - we look forward to seeing them defend their title next year!
David Setters has been tireless in raising awareness and working towards identifying a cure for Motor Neurone Disease (MND, also known as ALS in the U.S.) since being diagnosed with MND seven years ago. He established City Against MND in 2015 and works closely with the MND Association all while facing his own challenges with this disease.
It’s not too late to donate! You can still help us raise funds for the event here.
