Once again Standard Chartered is proud to have joined hands with Sri Lanka Cricket to embark on yet another campaign to raise funds and awareness for Sri Lankan cricketing talent. The campaign launch will coincide with the tour of the England cricket team and both the Sri Lankan and English cricketers have generously agreed to participate in fund raising events. This campaign – Street to Stadium – focuses on growing rural cricket and providing opportunities for talent that may not have the chance of discovery, to shine.
The focus on improving conditions for rural cricket is an extension of Standard Chartered’s partnership with Sri Lanka Cricket to introduce a community investment perspective to international cricket tours. It is hoped that a total of 23 million rupees could be raised via similar activities around future international tours and that Sri Lankans will come together as a nation to foster and showcase underprivileged talent and afford opportunities to rural youth.
