The tenth PrideviewCricket Cup exhibition match with star-studded former England internationals took place between Property All Star team and an Ex-England Team on 19th July at OMT Cricket Club, Northwood. Despite the searing heat, the event was very well attended and helped raise £28,000 for the chosen charity, One Kind Act.
The funds raised at the event will be distributed between three causes - Alisha Malhotra’s Bright Start Scholarship Programme, London Community’s Kitchen and ABLE Charities. By raising funds to support suitable charities, One Kind Act seeks to create a sustainable improvement in the lives of people suffering from poverty of health and education around the world.
This year there were six teams from the property industry competing for the coveted prize - Knight Frank, Allsop, Axiom Stone, SBI UK, Major Estates and Prideview. The winner was Major Estate.
Owais Shah, Alex Tudor, Samit Patel, Devon Malcolm, Sajid Mahmood and Simon Jones and Ravi Bopara were some of the former England players who lent their support to this year's event.
A statement from Prideview stated: "We are delighted to announce that despite the record temperatures, we had around 150 people brave the heat (and the barrage of sixes), helping us raise £28,000 for our chosen charity, One Kind Act! Massive thanks to all our sponsors and donors for supporting the very worthy causes that One Kind Act will be supporting."
