    Story

    The Kent Cricket Club U-17 team has been invited by the Hellenic Cricket Federation to participate in the International Schools Cricket Tournament in Corfu, Greece from 25-30 June, 2018.

    The Kent U-17 team consists of ten boys and five girls, and will have the opportunity to compete against children from top cricketing nations such as England, India, Pakistan, South Africa and Australia, among others. This is expected to be a massive opportunity for these less-privileged children in Sierra Leone, who have been through traumatic experiences due to Ebola, flooding, and mudslide, to show case their cricketing talents.

    In May 2016, Kent Cricket Club CEO, Emmanuel Pessima was a guest at the International Schools Tournament hosted in Corfu, Greece, where he spent significant amount of his time appealing to the President of the Hellenic Cricket Federation for his support. The Hellenic Cricket Federation has accepted to support the Kent U-17 team with accommodation, food and transportation while in Corfu.

    To ensure the team participation is successful, planning is underway to have a two weeks coaching session for our boys and girls in the UK while at the same time we apply for our Greece Visas. The Sierra Leone team is expected to come to the UK on the 11th-24th June, 2018 then going onto Corfu, Greece .

    However, the major challenge now is to raise funds to cover the cost for the 15 children and three officials to travel to UK & then going onto Corfu, Greece for schools cricket championship. We need to raise at least £10,466 to make this a reality. The money goes towards air tickets, accommodation, transportation, food and drinks for the team in UK.

    In this regard, Kent Cricket Club Sierra Leone requests you for support. Please make your donation to support us, so that these children can be given the much-deserved opportunity to compete with other children outside Sierra Leone. Any amount that you can donate will help make the difference. Thank you for your donation.
