The Lanka Premier League 2023 has raised Rs. 1.8 million for the ‘Little Hearts’ Project of the Lady Ridgeway Children’s Hospital during the first three days of the tournament.
During the first 5 games of the tournament played so far, 129 boundaries and 50 sixes have been scored, with 494 dot balls being bowled.
Sri Lanka Cricket will donate to the ‘Little Hearts’ project Rs. 4000 for each boundary scored, Rs. 6000 for every six scored, and Rs. 2000 for every dot ball bowled during the tournament.
The funds will help build a ‘Cardiac and Critical Care Complex’ at the LRH, which, once built, will help treat children with congenital heart diseases (CHD) and critical illnesses.
Sri Lanka Cricket will also contribute a portion of the funds collected from ticket sales to the Little Hearts Fund.
