Angostura® sponsored cricket equipment and uniforms for the Blanchisseuse Secondary School’s Senior Boys and Girls Cricket teams to participate in the Secondary Schools’ Cricket League (SSCL) that kicked off in February 2024.

The Senior Boys and Girls teams competed against schools in the North Zone of the SSCL. Angostura’s sponsorship of the school’s cricket teams afforded the students the opportunity to participate in the 2024 SSCL.

Principal of Blanchisseuse Secondary School, Mr. Hashim Johnson said, “For many of our students, this sponsorship has provided not only the necessary tools to participate in cricket but also an immense boost to their confidence and self-esteem. Angostura’s sponsorship has also allowed us to enhance our physical education programme and provide our students with the opportunity to develop their skills and pursue their passion for cricket. This not only contributes to their physical well-being but also teaches them important life skills such as discipline, perseverance, and teamwork.”

Sporting activities like cricket tend to instill discipline, teamwork, resilience, and leadership skills amongst young players. It provides a platform for physical fitness and mental well-being, encouraging an active and healthy lifestyle.

These types of programmes assist with the holistic development of young individuals, providing them with essential life skills that extend far beyond the cricket field.

Angostura® would like to congratulate the Blanchisseuse Secondary School’s Senior Boys and Girls Cricket teams for their outstanding performance in the SSCL where they placed 3rd and 2nd respectively. Their remarkable achievement is a testament to their hard work, dedication, and teamwork. They have made us all proud!
