Henley CC’s last chance to win ultimate prize

Henley Cricket Club's junior girls’ teams
There is less than a week left for Henley Cricket Club to drum up as many votes as possible to win a chance of a lifetime training session from an England cricketing professional.

The voting race is the final stage of a grassroots cricket campaign launched by premium home appliance brand AEG, where Henley CC is one of 20 cricket teams from around the UK competing to win the dream prize.

The three clubs that receive the most votes will benefit from a training session hosted by an ex international player who will visit their club for a once in a lifetime sporting opportunity.

Voters have until midnight on Sunday 5 October to cast their vote by supporting their local team they will be automatically entered into a prize draw to win a new AEG ÖKOMix washing machine.

Andrew Strauss, who will be leading one of the sessions, said: “With the competition ending on 5 October, I think it’s vital the community get behind Henley CC to make the most of their last opportunity to win this prize. We have seen how the professional training sessions has inspired teams to go on and perform to the best of their abilities by gaining new techniques and expanding their cricketing skills.”

The 20 shortlisted clubs have already won AEG’s Ultimate Kit & Laundry Package, which includes bespoke Canterbury Cricket kits designed by the club and an AEG ÖKOMix washing machine to keep them looking pristine on the cricket pitch.

James Methven Head of Marketing (UK & Ireland) at AEG, said: “The closing date for the competition is fast approaching so this is a great time to rally up as many votes as possible before time is up. Henley CC is extremely close to securing a fantastic sporting opportunity with their cricket hero, but they still need all the votes they can get to secure this win.”

The opportunity is part of AEG’s ongoing commitment to support grassroots sports, which began with rugby in early 2011 and has now expanded into cricket, supplying more than 1,000 kits to clubs around the UK.

Voting closes on 5 October 2014.
