Bayview Hospital has again reached out to our neighbours with a helping hand. This time in the form of an innovative new partnership with the Young Men’s Progressive Club (YMPC). The club, which is now called ‘The Bayview Hospital YMPC’, had not been sponsored for five years. So it has definitely come just at the right time!

Bayview Hospital will be happily providing financial aid to the YMPC. Bayview is very active in the development of local youth through sports. The funds will assist them with the maintenance of their cricket pitch, clubhouse and surrounding grounds, gear for the cricketers, refurbishment of the car park, and other expenses.

The initiative has been described by Bayview’s Hospital Administrator Jules Reid as “a wonderful example of community spirit by both parties. Our partnership with YMPC really is just that; a partnership. Often our patients who overlook the YMPC pitch will watch the children play cricket – it makes for a lovely distraction for them,” she said. “Bayview Hospital is very supportive of our nation’s youth and their development through sport. We are pleased to be able to assist the YMPC and to partner with our community to achieve positive social outcomes”.

Shane Dowrich also expressed his gratitude to Bayview Hospital. He said the partnership will assist to guide young cricketers at the club to higher heights. “This sponsorship will really help us to finance our junior programme which helps us going forward,” he said.
