Fundraising for both the NHS & ECC

Current 1st XI cricketer Jehan Jeffrie (JJ) has set up a Just giving page for us to try raise some money for the NHS and the Club. The challenge for all of us is to contribute using or daily exercise slot to get to the North Pole. This is approximately 10,000km and we’re trying to complete this before the June 4th! To donate go here: https://www.justgiving.com/crowdfunding/ecc-northpole.

To track this let's all use Strava, free app that we can all download and use. I have set up a club so we can track top performers and the total distance we have all done over the period! Join using the link here: https://www.strava.com/clubs/650875. We can walk, Run or cycle to achieve the goal (f we are doing well we can adjust the target to get back from the North Pole). 

Will need as many of you as possible to achieve our goal! With 50 of us it would require 6.5km on average a day! So get your running shoes on, get your bikes out, remember every little helps! 

If you’ve got any questions let me know, happy to help get you set up on Strava as well. Hopefully we can all join in get fit and do our bit for the NHS/Club.

Thanks

JJ

 

P.S don’t forget to share on social media and with friends and family!

ECC News

16 May 2020

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.
