Lucas Cricket Camp scores big with NCB Foundation

THE ANNUAL Lucas Cricket Camp caters to students eight to 14 years, mainly from neighbouring schools in east Kingston, and is aimed at supporting the development of cricket in Jamaica, both at the club and national levels.
Fifty aspiring young cricketers recently participated in the programme, where they were exposed to the history, theory and practice of the sport. The NCB Foundation, having been on board with the project since its inception, donated J$250,000 towards the camp’s third annual staging.
