On Earth Day, April 22, Scotiabank Kiddy Cricketers who gathered at Sabina for the second day of the test match between the West Indies and Pakistan used the opportunity to plant a symbolic tree in celebration of the occasion.

More than 70 students gathered around a small triangular green area, to the back of the North Stand, to create a permanent marker that will inspire Kiddy Cricketers in years to come.

Yanique Forbes Patrick, vice-president, marketing at Scotiabank, said, "Environmental protection is an area Scotiabank is very passionate about, and planting trees is one of the easiest ways to positively affect the environment. It was also an opportunity to plant a Kiddy Cricket tree at Sabina Park to pay tribute to the growth and development of the programme, while commemorating Earth Day."
