THE efforts of the ten cricket teams of Guyana’s leading youth and sports organisation last Tuesday received a major boost when several of the club’s long-standing  friends came on board with contributions.

The 10 cricket teams – Rose Hall Town Farfan and Mendes Under-15, Poonai Pharmacy Under-12 and Under-13, Bakewell Under-17 and Second Division, Pepsi Under-19 and Intermediate, NAMILCO Thunderbolt Under-21 and First Division would be hosting a series of charity projects under their annual Christmas outreach programme.

Club Secretary/CEO Hilbert Foster and vice-president Mark Papannah received the donations which included toys and financial contributions.

Honorary RHTYSC member Safraz Sheriffudeen, Chief Executive Officer of V-Net Communications, handed over a large quantity of Christmas toys, which would be shared out to children of single-parent households.

Long-time RHTYSC sponsor Mr Mahadeo Panchu of KSM Investment Inc., along with the Guyana National Newspapers Ltd, Bissoondyal Singh of Bissan’s Trading and Ricky Deonarine of 4R Bearings also made financial donations to the programme.

The long-serving Secretary/CEO, who is also the president of Berbice Cricket Board (BCB) expressed gratitude to the donors for their assistance and reassured them that all the planned activities would be well organised.

The 2020 Christmas Programme of the 10 teams would officially start on Monday, December 7 with the distribution of hampers to less fortunate families. A total of one thousand food hampers valued at $4 000 each will be distributed across Berbice to less fortunate families.

The families were identified by a special committee of the club, who visited different communities. The teams would also share out 5 000 Christmas toys to children drawn from less fortunate and single-parent households.

The club will present toys to places of worship across the county and they would distribute them to children in their areas.

Among the other projects planned are donations to orphanages, distribution of a special Christmas package to senior citizens and Christmas breakfast to 500 senior citizens in the Lower Corentyne area.

Distribution of educational material, clothing and footwear would also be done in what Foster described as the largest Christmas programme ever organised by the club since it was started in 1990.
