RHTY&SC makes donation to Umpires Association, Upper Corentyne CA
The Rose Hall Town Youth & Sports Club and its ten cricket teams are known across Guyana for their kind acts of making contributions to fellow clubs, organisations and youths.
Last year, the Sports Club and the teams successfully completed a record 718 activities under a wide range of sub-headings that included sports, charity, educational, anti-drugs, anti-alcohol, coaching, religious, and social.
The teams have already started 2019 by making donations to several organisations and individuals. The Berbice Cricket Umpires Association (BCUA)
received fifteen small packages from the Sports Club for all of its active Umpires while promising National Under-15 fast bowler Isaiah Thorne benefitted from a donation of a pair of cricket boots. The Upper Corentyne Cricket Association received a quantity of educational materials to assist them to host an Inter Primary School Tournament in the Upper Corentyne. The Flying Ace Cycling Club received a trophy for its Annual Award Ceremony while the Club and the Cricket Teams also assisted over twenty less fortunate students with educational materials to attend school under its Dare to Dream Programme.
Club Secretary/CEO Hilbert Foster stated that while the Rose Hall Town Youth & Sports Club has lost one of its biggest sponsors with the upcoming closure of Scotiabank in Guyana, it is still committed to making positive differences in the lives of others. The donation of the cricket boots to the highly talented Thorne was
the fulfilment of a promise made by Foster, who is also the President of the Berbice Cricket Board. Foster committed the Sports Club, to assisting Thorne after witnessing him bowl against Rose Hall Town Gizmos & Gadgets in an impressive spell. The RHTY&SC Secretary/CEO also promised Thorne to assist him to fulfil his dream of playing cricket for the West Indies. The Sports Club, and the Upper Corentyne Cricket Association enjoyed a close working relationship and as such, the cricket teams were delighted to assist the Association with the educational materials for the Inter-Primary School Tournament,
The materials included exercise books, rulers, calculators, pencils, erasers, sharpeners and pens. The members of the Berbice Cricket Umpires Association, Foster noted, were doing a remarkable job in Berbice and the donation was a small gesture on behalf of all the clubs in the Ancient County. The ten cricket teams of the RHTY&SC are King Solomon Logistics Under-12, Poonai Pharmacy Under-13, Farfan & Mendes Under-15, Bakewell Under-17 and Second Division, Pepsi Under-19 and Intermediate, Metro Female, along with Gizmos & Gadgets Under-21 and First Division teams.
