Meeting Joe Root

We met Joe Root at the Belfry Golf Club this week and took the opportunity to show him the original painting which was commissioned by The Root Academy.

This Iconic image captures the moment Joe Root scored his first Century on debut as England Captain against South Africa at Lord’s in July 2017. This original painting on canvas will be auctioned later on this year for a charity event held by The Root Academy.

Joe loved the piece and we hope that later on this year it raises awareness and funds for The Root Academy and its associate charities.
