Berkshire Cricket’s chance to win £1,000

Berkshire Cricket is calling for nominations to win a £1,000 Movement for Good Award from Benefact Group.

Berkshire Cricket is encouraging people to nominate them for a chance to win £1,000 as part of Benefact Group’s annual Movement for Good Awards, which is giving over £1million away to charities and good causes.

It’s quick and easy to nominate Berkshire Cricket online by clicking this link.

Winners will be drawn at random and the more times Berkshire Cricket is nominated the more chance it has of being selected.

Should we be successful in securing the £1,000 of additional investment in our important programmes, we would use this money to provide More People, in More Places, with More Cricket – including additional disability provision, supporting talented young cricketers, bursaries for those from disadvantaged backgrounds, and growing our offer in urban areas.

Berkshire Cricket is encouraging everyone to use their social media channels to ask people to nominate them to give the charity the best possible chance of winning.

Mark Roche, CEO of Berkshire Cricket, said: ‘Over the last few years we have looked to grow the cricket offer in areas where this has historically been lacking, to give more opportunities to those with the least access to our great game.  We all know that cricket can provide a fantastic opportunity to socialise, meet new people, and be a part of a team – through our programmes we are looking to get More People involved in the programmes, deliver these in More Places, to see More Cricket across the County’.

Mark Hews, Group Chief Executive of Benefact Group, says: “Benefact Group is a family of award-winning specialist financial services companies and the third largest corporate donor to charity in the UK. Owned by a charity ourselves, charitable giving is at the heart of what we do. All of our available profits go to good causes and the more the Group grows, the more the Group can give.

“We are delighted to be able to donate over £1million to good causes each year through our Movement for Good Awards and are grateful to all our supporters, including the customers of the trusted insurer, Ecclesiastical, and the responsible and sustainable asset manager, EdenTree. Our Movement for Good Awards help charities change lives for the better and we know that for many charities, £1,000 can make a real difference.”

Movement for Good is funded by EIO plc, part of the Benefact Group.
