The Lanka Premier League 2023 has so far raised Rs. 4.5 million for the ‘Little Hearts’ Project of the Lady Ridgeway Children’s Hospital (LRH) during the first 13 games of the tournament.
During the tournament, 136 sixes and 339 boundaries have been scored, along with 1176 dot balls bowled, thus boosting Sri Lanka Cricket’s ‘Bat and Bowl for Little Hearts’ Project, which was launched with the aim of raising funds for the Little Hearts Project of the Lady Ridgeway Children’s Hospital.
Through this program, 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 LPL 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 for the LPL 2023 to the ‘Little Hearts’ program.
