51 Hour Cricket Net Session

22 April 2017 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm

Tim Carr mentioned this at a Surrey Downs League Meeting..

“Building a Future for Cricket in Rwanda”

“Coutts Cricket Club are supporting the outstanding work carried out by the Rwanda Cricket Stadium Foundation to bring cricket facilities to the country and its people. Cricket has been a huge healer post the  civil war in the 1990’s and sport as it so often does has helped to bring people together with a shared passion.

We have been inspired by the captain of the Rwanda cricket team, Eric Dusingizimana who personally undertook a 51 hour cricket net on his own to raise funds for the foundation. We will together be matching his efforts at the Oval over the weekend of 21-23rd April 2017, although there will be lots of us and only one of him!!

All support for this amazing charity and to support the building of facilities in Rwanda will be very gratefully received, and will make a huge difference to the lives of the people there.

When you donate, please specify which club member you are supporting.”
