Students from the Heartland Academy in Nepal have been the beneficiaries of cricket uniform and equipment, donated by cricket clubs and players across the Thunder Nation.
The Centre for Learning and Children’s Rights (CLCR), which oversees the Heartland Academy, is an Australian, international not-for-profit organisation that deliver educational and humanitarian projects in Nepal. CLCR initiated the Heartland Academy more than 10 years ago and this has been the focus for CEO and Founder, Patrick Price.
“The gear donated over the past few years has had a huge, positive impact on both students and teachers at Heartland,” Price said.
“The gear brightens up student’s lives and creates a real buzz when they return home to their village,”
Over the past three years, gear collected across the Thunder Nation has been distributed to students at the Heartland Academy. The provision of cricket clothing and equipment has helped inspire girls and boys to get involved in cricket. The gear has been used on a newly constructed cricket pitch, which was funded by the Thunder Foundation earlier this year.
Students from Heartland Academy have filmed and produced a video showcasing the cricket clothing and equipment in action.
Sydney Thunder has also been actively involved with the Nepalese community locally, with a record 17 teams and over 180 participants participating in the Nepal Thunder Nation Cup in September.
Sydney Thunder Memberships are currently on sale with supporters being able to enjoy all five games at Spotless Stadium for $100 and enjoy more than $200 of additional benefits including access to Wet'n'Wild Sydney, the Sydney Royal Easter Show and $10 Movie Tickets.
