Cricket legend Sir Andrew Strauss attends SporTedd fundraiser

Community news on behalf of SporTedd | 17 May 2023

The former Middlesex and England captain showed all his class as he batted away a series of tough questions at SporTedd’s latest fundraising dinner at The Wharf in Teddington. 

Cricket journalist James While quizzed the sporting legend about his distinguished career including his sledging run-ins with the late spin bowler Shane Warne.

Andrew also spent time answering questions from guests. Amongst the guests on the night were former ECB Chief Executive Tom Harrison, who lives in Teddington and former England player Monty Panesar, who played for Twickenham CC while studying international sports journalism at St Mary’s University.

The latest dinner raised over £2000 for the community group which has donated nearly £70.000 to sports-themed projects across Richmond Borough and has attracted a series of top drawer guests including Tim Henman, Damon Hill, Gary Lineker, Sue Barker and Jason Leonard.

Latest grants include a donation of £1100 awarded to Lowther Primary School, Richmond for football equipment, £1480 for goalkeeper kits for Teddington Hockey Club, and a further £2000 went to Hampton Rangers Junior Football Club towards a new clubhouse.
