HNB Assurance and General Insurance to sponsor Lanka Cavaliers
Lanka Cavaliers came into existence 23 years back and is made up of famous cricketers who have represented Sri Lanka and other clubs. The club, whilst providing a platform for senior cricketers to engage in the sport they love so very much, is also focused on aiding the development of cricket in the rural areas of the country to give children the opportunity to engage in the sport.
HNBA and HNBGI Chief Executive Officer Prasantha Fernando, stated, “We are extremely delighted to join hands with Lanka Cavaliers, since aiding sports and supporting the value of great sportsmanship has been a part of the Group’s Corporate Philanthropy. Over the years the HNBA Group joined hands to support several sports teams including the Deaf Cricket Team of Sri Lanka. Whilst thanking Lanka Cavaliers for this opportunity, I hope that this sponsorship will help in carrying on the mission of the club and wish them well in all their future endeavours.”
Lanka Cavaliers General Secretary Sirosha Gunatilake stated, “Despite the ongoing pandemic, we aimed to continue matches to uplift the momentum of club members whilst adhering to health guidelines. The absence in having a sponsor was a key challenge that we’ve faced. It is admirable that HNB Assurance and HNB General Insurance stepped up to sponsor Lanka Cavaliers and we look forward to retaining a positive relationship with HNB Assurance and HNB General Insurance.”
