ANGUILLA–The Atlantis Cricket Club of New York has donated US $1,500, two barrels of clothes and eight boxes of toys to Anguilla. The money was raised at the Atlantis 51st Awards Dinner.

The effort was at the suggestion of the Club’s cricketers who thought it a fitting tribute in honour of two Anguillian cricketers and former Atlantis players Alex and Terry Adams, both of whom have represented Atlantis in the Eastern American Cricket Association league and have toured the United Kingdom with the Club.

The Atlantis Club presented the cheque to Carlson Connor, President of the Anguilla Progressive Association of New York (APANY) to be sent to the people of Anguilla. In accepting the cash and items on behalf of the people of Anguilla Connor said, “APANY and the people of Anguilla appreciate the contributions of Atlantis Cricket Club and the scores of other individuals and organisations that have responded to the appeal for help. There is a lot still required to help rebuild Anguilla after the two devastating hurricanes.”
