A message from my friend Vic Mills:
There’s something of the miraculous about this current project newsletter. As I write, the bottom left corner of my laptop screen appears intent on detaching itself from the whole, while a couple of weeks ago I managed to spill the remains of a bottle of beer over the keyboard. Add in the delayed arrival of our coaches report from Mumbai and this issue has proved, as if the England tail, something of a slog.
However, while the laptop may be struggling this is not the case with either the project or the Dharavi Cricket Academy. Both experienced a busy December with the first matches of the season in Mumbai along with a full coaching schedule. In the UK, meanwhile, PFF turned Secret Santa to deliver surplus clothing and kit for foster homes, and adult clothing to a charity for the homeless. There was also the small matter of booking a February return to Mumbai. So plenty to interest and entice this New Year.
