Mr Eccles is also a patron of the charity, ‘Elizabeth’s legacy of Hope”.

This charity was started by Sarah Hope and her twin sister Victoria Bacon following a tragic accident involving Sarah, her Mother and her daughter Pollyanna in 2007. This accident resulted in the death of Sarah’s Mother, she herself suffered life changing injuries to her leg, and Pollanna, at only 18 months of age lost her leg. Mr Eccles was the surgeon the Sarah and Pollyanna. Sarah and her sister started the charity to help other child amputees in the developing world, by providing artificial limbs, and training teams to produce these limbs locally.
