UnLtd Big Clash beats last year’s figures and raises over $135,000

Industry organisation UnLtd has raised $135,000 for its fifth annual Big Clash cricket tournament.

In Sydney, the men’s tech team narrowly beat the media agencies by five runs, whereas in Melbourne the media owners beat the media agencies by 45 runs.

The media agency team

The women’s team saw agencies triumphant in Sydney and media owners win the trophy in Melbourne.

Each year, the event organised by UnLtd, connects the media, marketing and advertising industries with charities focused on assisting children and young people at risk.

This year, over 70 companies took part to help raise money for sick children.

In Sydney, UnLtd named Zoe Crouch from Talent as the woman’s player of the day while REA’s Chris Wood was awarded men’s player of the day.

Meanwhile Melbourne’s trophies went to Dolly Herbert from MCN and Tom Zavecz from Shopper Media.

The proceeds from the event go towards UnLtd’s charity grants program, which supports 15 charities working with at-risk children and young people.

Since the event started five years ago, it has raised a total of $380,000.

Chris Freel, CEO of UnLtd, said in a statement: “Thank you to the industry for coming together again for this special event. Having the Lady Ballers teams has made this event complete! The Big Clash really unites us all and breaks down rivalries to bring everybody together.

“It will also help us to save lives and give belief to kids who have never had that hope before. Well bowled to the 70+ organisations that got involved and thank you to everyone who participated, sponsored, donated auction prizes and joined us on the day!”

James Bayes, head of digital sales at Seven West Media, added: “We’re incredibly proud to support the great work UnLtd do to support youth at risk and are committed to ensuring Seven West Media is a purpose driven media organisation that our people feel proud to work for.

“Big congrats and thanks to Chris and the team for putting on a fantastic event, and for helping us come together as an industry to make a difference to “people who need it more than us.”
