Cricketer Chris Nash’s charity support


Sussex cricketer Chris Nash has been granted a Testimonial Year in 2017, and we are delighted to announce that he has chosen to support Rockinghorse.

Born locally in Cuckfield, the 33 year-old batsman has been at the heart of Sussex cricket for nearly the past two decades, having joined the club as an eight-year old. Nash made his first-class debut for Sussex back in 2002 and is one of the club’s most decorated players.

As part of his Testimonial Year, Nash has chosen to support both Rockinghorse, and the Sussex Cricket Foundation. As the official fundraising arm of the Royal Alexandra Children’s Hospital (the Alex) in Brighton, we raise money for life-saving and cutting-edge medical equipment, as well as ensuring that children are treated in an environment better suited to their needs.

Chris Nash said: “To be awarded a Testimonial Year is a huge privilege. Having started playing at Sussex as an eight year-old, it was always my dream to play first-team cricket here. To have played over 400 games, won trophies and have a lot of personal success is something my family and I are very proud of. I hope to play for many years to come and help the club back to winning ways with a very promising squad.

“I would like to thank Sussex for granting me a testimonial and I look forward to a fun year of events and a great chance to support the charities I have chosen.”

His launch event will take place on Friday 10 March at The Grand Hotel in Brighton, with a full range of events to follow in due course.
