Wilmslow Cricket Club would like to extend its deepest condolences to the family and friends of Martin Hilliard, our friend & supporter, who passed away yesterday at the age of 46.
Martin, a keen cricket fan, began his involvement with the club during the 2019 season, culminating in the sponsorship of the club via two of his Wilmslow based businesses at the time, including Le Sandwich.
He continued to support the club throughout the past 18 months, most notably by generously funding the purchase of bespoke hoodies for club members & increasing his sponsorship of the club by almost double when one of our other sponsors, unfortunately, went under due to the COVID19 pandemic.
The sudden loss of Martin will be felt not just at the club, but across the entire Wilmslow community as a whole. The kind, giving, and compassionate personality Martin had will be sorely missed by those who knew him. His passion, to help boost the profile of Wilmslow CC & all the community outreach programs we run, was second only to his love of the sport. He will be sorely missed by many at the club.
