ECE Charity Cricket 2023

Cricket fever hit the 1st Central County Ground in Hove last week as ECE hosted our 4th Charity Cricket Event. It is a highlight on ECE’s calendar, and again this year, it was an absolutely brilliant day.

Under the clear blue skies, 15 teams played for the winner’s trophy, while raising money for the Chestnut Tree House Children’s Hospice. Thanks to all the supporters and participants, we are proud to say we have raised an incredible £6,700 for Chestnut Tree House, making a difference to the lives of those who need it most.

Although not everyone was a pro, there were some very closely fought matches two of the four groups decided by run difference.

In a finale that had everyone on the edge of their seats, Countryside Partnerships narrowly defeated the home team, ECE Architecture. It was a spectacular showdown and marked Countryside Partnerships’ second consecutive win. Congratulations to our other semi-finalists, Thakeham Group and Morgan Sindall, for giving it their all on the pitch.

Cricket for a good cause

Paul Fender, Design Director at ECE Architecture, stepped up to the plate to award the medals to the champions and runners-up. The celebrations didn’t end there as a charity raffle followed, offering some incredible prizes courtesy of Chestnut Tree House and Sussex County Cricket Club.

Hannah Seltzer from Chestnut Tree House shared some heartfelt words about the remarkable work the charity does, emphasising how corporate fundraising makes a significant impact in funding the £15,000 daily cost of running the hospice.

We want to extend our gratitude to everyone who played a role in making this day possible, especially the fantastic team at Sussex County Cricket Club for their hospitality and support.
