Mike Dormer Awards 2022
Life through Cricket is a joint initiative by Dilmah’s MJF Foundation & Cricket Live Foundation New Zealand, providing free coaching and academic support for young girls and boys from underprivileged communities across Sri Lanka.
Former New Zealand cricket legend Mike Dormer was an integral part of our Cricket Live Foundation in molding young girls and boys of Sri Lanka not only with cricket skills but also with life. Unfortunately, he left us last year and in memory of his life and to honor his services towards the youth of our country, Mike Dormer Awards was introduced to the CLF students from this year inspiring the confidence in them to dream beyond boundaries.
As the first recipients of Mike Dormer Awards, out of nearly 400 candidates from underprivileged communities, 4 young individuals were selected who are excelling at cricket as well as education.
These kids received cricket equipment, shoes, school bags and gift vouchers as a part of their awards to support their cricket skills and education.
The winners are; Chalani Chathurangi and Niresh Chathuranga from Moratuwa & And Himidu Warshana , Paboda Sewwandi from Siyambalanduwa
