Run Free team up with Southend & EMT cricket club
RUN Free are delighted to announce a new sporting partnership with Southend & EMT cricket club.
The Southchurch Park based club hosted Run Free in an entertaining encounter earlier this month.
And that has now led to a new link up, much to the delight of Run Free co-owner Chris Phillips.
“We loved the cricket game we had and this is taking things a step further now which is great news,” said Phillips.
“We’re all about raising awareness of mental health and using sport to help people overcome the difficulties they are facing so this partnership is another step forward.
“We’re going to be the club’s chosen charity which will really help us and we’re so thankful for the support of everyone at Southend & EMT.”
Southend won the charity clash, which raised nearly £400 for Mind, by nine runs.
And the club’s Scott Elliott is pleased to be supporting Run Free’s aim.
“From holding the cricket match we got to know all about Run Free, the people involved and what they are trying to achieve so we were really keen to help,” said Elliott.
“We will have Run Free as our chosen charity so we will be supporting them any way possible and everyone involved with them will become social members of our club.
“We will have more news on this in the next few months and we’re really looking forward to being involved with such a good cause.”
