Our players are trying to walk, cycle and run to The North Pole this month to raise funds for the NHS and ECC
They won't actually be going there, but the players and supporters hope to cover the 10,000kms between them.
Updates on their progress is on their Just Giving page and also on the ECC Facebook page.
If you would like to donate to this worthy cause please go to - https://www.justgiving.com/crowdfunding/ecc-northpole
So far 3,500kms have been covered and £870 has been raised.
In other news, we have been successful in obtaining a grant from Sports England for £5,000 to help towards our running costs. This is in addition to the £10,000 received from London Borough of Hillingdon. This all helps as our running costs still continue despite the clubhouse being closed.
We are at present awaiting the next announcement from ECB upon when cricket may start, who are of course awaiting updates from the Government. We will keep all members updated as news comes in.
All colts have been receiving weekly training programmes with You Tube demonstrations from our head of colts Marc Broom. These will continue until we can get back to fully practice these at colts.
We hope that you and your families are all keeping well.
