The RHTY&SC MS, despite all of its efforts and passion, would be unable to reach youths in all of Guyana and as such needs the assistance of its sister clubs to promote the Say No/Say Yes message.Under the highly successful campaign, the eight cricket teams encourage youths to Say NO to Drugs, Suicide, Crime, Alcohol and YES to Education, Life, Sports and Religion.The RHTY&SC, Foster noted, is the only sports club in Guyana that has a programme to assist fellow clubs and for this year alone, dozens of clubs and sportsmen/women have benefited from over $4M worth of trophies, medals and other items to assist them to fulfil their respective mandates.The club in April assisted 12 cricket clubs with over $1.5M worth of cricket balls, bats and stumps while a total of 62 schools, clubs, NGOs and churches have benefited from donations of trophies, medals and prizes.Additionally 22 young sportsmen and women have received individual donation of gear, footwear, educational materials and finance under the RHTY&SC MS ‘Dare to Dream’ and ‘We Care’ Programmes.Meanwhile the RHTY&SC also donated trophies, medals, hand towels and a $18 000 bicycle to the East Bank Football Association (EBFA) for the hosting of a football tournament for females on the East Bank of Demerara, vice-president Mark Papannah, who has direct responsibilities for the RHTY&SC, saidOutreach programme stated that the club has reached out to other clubs in seven of the ten regions in Guyana and would continue to do so in the future.Papannah disclosed that the RHTY&SC would be assisting over 20 cricket clubs with sports gear, especially balls, after the hosting of the Patron’s Cup in July. Balls would be distributed to clubs as part of a widespread effort to assist them to develop the cricketing skills of youths.Among the clubs expected to benefit are Bush Lot Rising Star, Blairmont, Police, Edinburgh, Tucber Park, Young Warriors, Courtland, Fyrish, Chesney, Whim, Young and Restless, Skeldon and Upper Corentyne.last_img read more
