AVERY BRADLEY, the starting shooting guard for NBA franchise Boston Celtics, made a donation of US$20,000 to the Princess Elizabeth Centre, Ariapita Avenue, Woodbrook, Trinidad yesterday.

According to a media release issued by the United States Embassy, the cheque, presented by Bradley, will go towards the construction of the Centre's new orthopedic wing.
'This donation will be matched by the US National Basketball Players Association,' the media release added.

On hand during the presentation ceremony were Jan Sirjusingh, Chief Executive Officer of the Princess Elizabeth Centre; veteran boxing administrator Dr Calvin Inalsingh, president of the Board of Directors of the Princess Elizabeth Centre, and Professor Clement Imbert, vice-president of the Centre's Board of Directors.

On Monday, Bradley completed a three-day camp, along with a team of coaches from the Avery Bradley Skills Academy, at the National Cycling Velodrome in Couva.
Over 100 students, from primary and secondary schools across the country, learned the fundamentals of the game and participated in a number of drills.

And, at the ending of the camp, they got the opportunity to ask Bradley questions about his career, rivals and the NBA and were presented with NBA memorabilia as well as certificates of participation.
