Jersey Evening Post logoJersey cricketers travelling to the World Cricket League Division V tournament in Nepal next month are to visit a local orphanage during their stay.

Team captain Ryan Driver and fellow Le Rocquier School physical education teacher Andy Dewhurst are replicating what they did on the trip to Tanzania in 2008.

Driver said: 舛ontact has already been made with the orphanage and hopefully when we visit them it will be with a full squad this time.

選t was a real eye-opener last time and something that will remain with me for the rest of my life.

選t's a voluntary national organisation that runs the orphanage and we will be looking to raise some funds for them while we are in Nepal.

選 really don't know what to expect. The children at the Mitundo House orphanage in Tanzania were all HIV positive and when we returned to Le Rocquier the students and staff raised 」1,000 for them.

羨t assemblies our students were shown video footage that we took at the orphanage; it was a good for them to learn about what was going on and following a series of fund raising events we were able to send them some money to help them along.'

Jersey Cricket Board coach Craig Hogan said: 選t's great that the players will be putting something back in; it's partly to see the differences in the cultures and the ICC are very interesting in what we are going do.

選'm sure our players will get a lot out of it and it's a very good way of having a different focus on one of our days off.'
