The Everest Cricket Club (ECC) on Wednesday last received a quantity of cricket gear from overseas-based Guyanese and crick­et enthusiast, Dhanpaul ‘Danny’ Singh.

Singh, who resides in the United States, said that he was pleased to be associated with the club and happy to be able to contribute to the further development of the sport. He said that apart from him, a number of close as­sociates back in the USA were also instrumental in assisting with the pur­chasing of the equipment. Singh disclosed that the gear are to be used by the junior members of the club since it is his wish that many more talented cricketers who might not have afforded the equip­ment will be given the op­portunity to make full use of them.

Club president Rajesh Singh thanked the donor on behalf of the manage­ment and members of the club and promised to fully utilise the gift. Among the other do­nors were King’s Jewellery World, Travel Span, Leonora Kiddy’s Cricket, Fazal from Alba Fuel, Leslie Lowe, and ‘Zubbie’.
