On the 9th of November, the second Annual Batting for Change XI Match was held at Barker College, raising funds for the Foundation of Goodness, Sri Lanka. The BFC XI featured Ed Cowan, Steve O’Keefe, Alyssa Healy, Roy Asotasi, Brett Kimmorley, and a smattering of local Barker legends and teachers.
The rain-affected match ended without a victor, with credible mention to the Barker XI who bowled and fielded well to limit the BFC team’s innings to 130. The generosity of the community supports life-changing educational opportunities; with support from Harvey Norman and YourTutor more than $20,000 was raised to support ongoing projects with the Foundation of Goodness in the north of Sri Lanka. The next BFC XI Match will be held at The King’s School on February 22, 2017. We’d love to see you all there!
