The Supermarket has supported this event from the beginning. At the presentation ceremony held recently, the Managing Director said that he is once again happy to be part of this annual event.
Satar said that it is important as a businessman to give back to such an important event that will help develop the community in which they operate.
He further stated that he is impressed with the work of the club in helping so many youths to stay constructively occupied and at the same time develop their skills.
He added that all of the Canje area should be proud of the players coming out of the club with special mention of Shimron Hetmyer who is already a senior national opener and is currently leading the West Indies Under-19 team in Bangladesh with great success.
Receiving the cheque on behalf of the club was first division skipper Wahied Edwards who thanked the sponsor for his continued support of the club. He called on the residents in the area to support the business so that it can give back to the community. He called on other businesses and private individuals to follow suit. Edwards reiterated the club’s motto of “Striving for excellence through cricket and education” and promised that it will be upheld despite the challenges.
