Hetmyer, Sinclair and Baksh back BCB’s efforts to help less fortunate
Guyana and West Indies batsman Shimron Hetmyer was the first person to respond to the Berbice Cricket Board’s call for persons to assist the Board in its food hamper project for less fortunate persons in the county.
President Hilbert Foster on Sunday announced via the Board’s Facebook page that the talented left-hander and his fiancée responded positively to the call, as the Board looks to play its part in the fight against the coronavirus.
“The couple handed over their donation less than six hours after the request was made. We are working on a Friday deadline for distribution of the hampers and would like to urge our other cricketers, well-wishers and friends to join us on this noble journey.”
The Board later announced that Guyana Jaguars all-rounder and West Indies Emerging Player Kevin Sinclair and Vice-president of the Blairmont Cricket Club and CEO of Big B’s Restaurant Shabeer Baksh have also donated to the cause, along with the National Milling Company (NAMILCO), Bakewell and the Rose Hall Town Youth and Sports Club (RHTY&SC).
“The best feeling in the world is to make a positive difference in the lives of those less fortunate than us and now is the right time to do so. The RHTY&SC, MS, has donated fifty thousand dollars worth of items, while the club has also obtained items from NAMILCO and Bakewell. Please join us as we seek to make sure that our brothers and sisters are taken care of during this crisis,” Foster said.
