CHILDREN from the Diamond Special Needs School were in awe today, thanks to Digicel, after spending some quality time with the players and staff of the Guyana Amazon Warriors cricket franchise. “This event is not new. We’ve been doing this throughout the Caribbean and wherever Digicel markets are and where cricket is being played,” said Digicel manager Vidya Sanichara. At the Marriott Hotel, the Amazon Warriors took time to interact, sign autographs and also engaged in a friendly game of cricket with the children of the Diamond Special Needs School.
“Some of them have never been to the Marriott, some of them have never been to cricket or met the players. So today we’re bringing Digicel and the players a little closer to them,” Sanichara told reporters. She further explained that Digicel has been “partnering with Special Needs for a number of years, and that’s something very close to our hearts. We also worked with the Diamond Special Needs School in the past”. Rayad Emrit, the Amazon Warriors’ right-arm fast-medium bowler expressed his delight, and that of his teammates, at being able to bring smiles to their fans, calling it a “special moment” for them as a team.
