A noble gesture

Calcutta: In his last Test, Jacques Kallis will be doing much more than just scoring runs and taking wickets.

The Willowton Group, manufacturers of Sunfoil, who are the sponsors of the ongoing Test series, have pledged support to the Jacques Kallis Foundation in honour of the all-rounder.

The Sunfoil Education Trust (SET) will donate all the funds raised for every four and six scored by both teams in the ongoing second Test to the Foundation.

In addition to this, for every wicket Kallis takes, Sunfoil will donate R10,000 and a further R50,000 if he manages to score a century.

A total of R175,000 has already been raised for the SET.

The aim of the Foundation is to sponsor learners from disadvantaged backgrounds by offering them the opportunity to attend one of the four established cricket schools.
