What a thrill it was for our Club when Sophie Ecclestone a member of the England Women’s Cricket Team came to congratulate us on reaching our score of 70!
She was bowled over by our project to mark the club’s seventieth anniversary. Making and donating mastectomy cushions is one of our ongoing projects but this year, one of our members suggested that to mark our seventieth year we should make seventy – we have – and they will be donated to the breast cancer wards at two local hospitals.
Sophie a left handed spin bowler is currently training with the rest of the England squad at Loughborough, she gave up some of her valuable time to come and help us celebrate this project.
The England Women’s Cricket team, winners of the best team award at the 2017BBC Sports Personality Awards will be traveling to India in March to play against the Australian women’s team
President Sandra thanked Sophie for coming and wished her well for the coming season.
