The Kent Cricket Club (KCC) is one of Lord’s Taverners beneficiaries. They have been working together over some months now. Lord’s Taverners is the UK’s leading youth cricket and disability sports charity, dedicated to giving disadvantaged and disabled young people a sporting chance, just as it’s motto says “give young people a chance.” Lord’s Taverners on their recently sent E-mail to the Chief Executive Officer of KCC, after completing his Monitoring and Evaluation (M&E) form, expressed their profound gratitude in which the KCC has been very effective in executing its designated responsibility some few months back. The KCC in collaboration with the Sierra Leone Cricket Association (SLCA) were able to distribute the donated items sent to them to the various categories that benefited from it. The donation comprised of cricket equipment, clothing and footwear. School going pupils benefitted from this donation. Schools like the Albert Academy Secondary School, Sierra Leone Grammar School, Methodist Boys High School, St. Edwards Secondary School, St. Joseph Secondary School (Convent), Government Senior Secondary School, Kingtom, St. Anthony Junior Secondary School, Police Primary School, St. Paul Primary School and St. John Primary School.

Also the Community Cricket project team that has performed well over the years in the country, Jui Community received clothing, footwear and equipment. The Sierra Leone Women’s national Cricket team; who are improving at a rapid rate, also received equipment, clothing and footwear which they used in the ICC T20 competition that took place in Zimbabwe. The Project Manager- kit recycling at Lord’s Taverners, David Pemberton, in his E-mail was satisfied with what the KCC has been doing and with such performance he stated that the CEO of KCC will now be directly speaking with the Monitor and Evaluation (M&E) team instead of him the Project Manager, and the KCC will be expecting another set of donation late March 2020, but David further asked whether the CEO would like a further donation to support his current projects or give donations of kit to new ones. He also stated that “Kent CC could become a long term partner with the Lord’s Taverners, in Africa”, this is so because of the positive feedback it has been sending to them backing them up with pictures, for him this has been great and over time they would become partners. The CEO of KCC Emmanuel Pessima was very excited to have received such a wonderful E-mail from Lord’s Taverners, and he will continue to execute what is expected of him so as to help others. He extended his gratitude to them saying the KCC is very happy to work with them and they also are looking forward to a long term relationship with Lord’s Taverners.
