Academy Hope To
Fund Indian School

Featured News | 1st October 2010

Members of the Nottinghamshire County Cricket Club Academy hope to raise sufficient funds to sustain an Indian school for a year when they host a dinner at Trent Bridge on Saturday 30 October.

Sam Kelsall, Michael Robson, George Bacon and Tom Rowe are amongst the players charged with organising the event following a trip to India in January.

“We visited a school and it made us realise how fortunate we are to have the facilities and opportunities that exist for us in Britain,” said Kelsall.

“We stayed in a hotel that was very comfortable but we had to travel through the slums to get there and it gave us all a clear understanding of the challenges that children in India face.”

Previous projects have already raised £3000 for the cause and it is hoped that local businesses will support the event to help achieve the fund-raising target of £5000.

“The money goes a long way and £5000 will allow Akanksha to run a school in a deprived area for a year,” said Robson.

“Knowing that the children that we visited are able to have an education would mean a lot to all of us and that is why we have organised this event.”

Former Yorkshire all-rounder Mike Cowan will speak at the event with the £25 ticket price including a three course meal in the Derek Randall suite.
