Penn Street Cricket Club enjoys a very special and unique relationship with The Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC) at Lords. They, in turn, are closely involved in the work of The Foundation of Goodness (FoG) in Sri Lanka.
Over the next 4 months we will be fundraising for this cause, culminating with a visit to The MCC Centre of Excellence at the end of our tour of Sri Lanka in February 2017. This charitable initiative will reinforce our values as "the little club with a big heart”
The Foundation of Goodness, in partnership with the famous MCC, has developed a Centre of Excellence in Seenigama, a landmark educational and wellness facility to provide village youth with the opportunity to make the best of their own future through education, sport and health, catering to over 25 villages in the region of Seenigama.
The MCC Centre of Excellence opened on 15th December 2007 as the centre point for many of FoG’s empowerment projects. It comprises of a medical centre, women’s enterprise division, environment project management office, business skills development centre, modern computer lab, pre-school, handicraft boutique, the Re-building Lives Programme, English training school, MCC gallery, tsunami gallery, administration office and accommodation for volunteers, donors and trainers.
We would be grateful for donations to this worthy cause. All our tourists are paying their own fares and costs, meaning 100% of your donation will go to The Foundation.
The Foundation of Goodness is not a U.K. registered charity so donations made will not be eligible for U.K. Gift Aid.
