A Norfolk cricket club has donated a large amount of second-hand kit to charity.

Kit collection hubs have been installed in Long Stratton, Wymondham and Diss Leisure Centres by South Norfolk Council to support Lord's Taveners, the youth cricket and disability sports charity.

Hethersett and Tas Valley Cricket Club were the first to donate to Long Stratton Leisure Centre with 10 sets of pads, two bags of bats and a large bag of cricket shoes, gloves, hats and more.

The council is collecting cricket, rugby and football equipment, tennis balls, cones, bibs, general sports clothing and boots on behalf of the charity, which is dedicated to giving disadvantaged and disabled young people the chance to play sport.

In 2017 the Lord's Taverners donated more than 4,100 items of cricket kit to 14 countries including Gambia and Serbia.
