Daily Nation (Barbados) - - Sport 3 -

THE HILDA SKEENE cricket team have re­ceived a big boost, thanks to At­tor­ney Gen­eral and Mem­ber of Par­lia­ment for St Philip South, Adriel Brath­waite.

On Tues­day, he do­nated cricket equip­ment, in­clud­ing pads, gloves, hel­mets and bats to the school, say­ing he got help sourc­ing the gear from for­mer West Indies fast bowler and cur­rent team man­ager Joel Garner.

“Cricket is my favourite sport and I want you to en­joy the game safely. En­joy your new gear, take care of it and I wish you suc­cess,” he told the chil­dren.

Brath­waite told the me­dia he was a strong be­liever in phys­i­cal ac­tiv­ity en­hanc­ing men­tal ac­tiv­ity and the best stu­dents be­ing all round achiev­ers.

The school’s phys­i­cal ed­u­ca­tion teacher Ul­ric Bat­son re­ceived the gear on the school’s be­half. He said he hoped it would in­spire more chil­dren to join the cricket team so they could one day be a force to reckon with in the Her­man Grif­fith com­pe­ti­tion. (CA)
