St Anthony’s College Kandy Old Boys’ Association AGM and Family Gathering
Press Release

St Anthony’s College Kandy Old Boys’ Association Committee, members and families gathered on the 29th of May at the Falkland Cricket Club, Newbury. A big thank you go out to Mr Daminda Kolugala who worked tirelessly to gather more troops to join the AGM and also a special mention to the Cricket Club who provided us with the facilities for the AGM. We had a turnout of over 25 members and with family members and friends we had a gathering of 60+ SACKOBA UK supporters.  

Most of us were able to stay back in Regency Park, Newbury and join again on the bank holiday Monday at the cricket club for a great family day. During the event we were able to raise over £50 towards flood relief charity for Sri Lanka too, SACKOBA UK committee would like to thank everyone for their contributions. Kids took part in many activities and those who did well were surprised with gifts and trophies too. It was great to see everyone joining in with the family day with the kids, partners and members activities.   

A big thank you to the outgoing committee, and congratulations to the newly elected committee, it’s a long year ahead. Keep up the great work done by the former
