Cricket Gear Donation to Schools
Governor General HE Sir Rodney Williams recently handed over cricket kits to students and faculty of three schools – The Antigua Grammar School, TN Kirnon and Irene B. Williams. The kits were donated to the Halo Foundation by the Bromsgrove School in the UK, during a visit to Antigua in March by the school’s under 16 and under 18 cricket teams.
Sir Rodney encouraged the students to continue their engagement in sports, as this active lifestyle is an important part of their overall mental and physical development. He noted that their abundance of talent needs to be coupled with supporting equipment and constant practice, if the objective is to play professional cricket or to be offered a sports scholarship at an institution of higher learning.
