Kia Catch winner donates prize to support Afghan and Ukrainian refugees




Surrey member David Cook has donated his 1000 prize for winning a Kia Catch, during Surrey’s Vitality Blast Quarter Final, to help refugees from Afghanistan and Ukraine play cricket at his local club: Streatham & Marlborough CC.

Cook, who attended the match with his 12-year-old son, clung to a catch when Rory Burns launched a short ball from Yorkshire sailor Matt Revis into the stands. Cook held the ball long enough to be classified as a Kia Catch, earning him the 1,000 prize that comes with winning a clean crowd at The Kia Oval during the Vitality Blast.

Although he then released the ball when it stumbled, after reviewing the footage, the judges confirmed it was an official Kia Catch. Cook spoke to the Surrey Cricket Foundation and chose to donate the money to Streatham and Marlborough CCs. The ability to pay is not a barrier to play, a fund that offers to cover the costs of match fees and equipment for people who cannot afford it themselves.

This season, the Ability to pay fund is supporting two refugees from Afghanistan and one from Ukraine to play for the club.

Cook and his son were invited to The Kia Oval to watch Surrey train for their return to County Championship cricket and received the check from Club Captain Rory Burns, along with a signed Club shirt.

After receiving the award, David Cook said: I am delighted that Kia has verified the catch and that this money is going to such a good cause. It went straight from the bat at us like a bullet, barely more than 10 meters off the ground. I didn’t have much time to think, but it went right into my hands, as easy as you want! It was an amazing moment, very surreal and I couldn’t really believe I had done it. I was thrilled when it was officially classified as a Kia Catch and I wanted to do something good with the money. With the cost of living affecting everyone in society, we were very proud of the Streatham and Marlboroughs Fund which ensures that the ability to pay is never a barrier to playing the game.

Sanka De Silva, Marketing Director at Kia, said The Kia Catch is an inspiring way to engage fans in watching the action at The Kia Oval. Rewarding 1000 for sharp-eyed spectators catching a six makes the game even more exciting. We would like to congratulate David, who successfully caught the ball in the Vitality Blast game against Yorkshire, as well as express our sincere gratitude for his decision to donate his winnings to the Ability to Pay fund. This fantastic goal helps break down barriers and make cricket accessible to all.
