Generous Donation: The Canowindra Public School has had an immense boost to their sports program with a donation of cricket and sporting equipment being generously given to the school by local business owner and parent, Eleena Markcrow. The donation was made to encourage kids to play outdoors and keep them active on the playground. Both of Eleena’s children are avid cricket players and with the new equipment are hoping more children will come forward to try their hand at the sport.
