On 8th November, Go Dharmic, hosted an amazing fundraising dinner at Northamptonshire County Cricket Club. The charitable organization which is developing education facilities for thousands of underprivileged children through its ‘Shape a Future’ campaign, was supported by Monty Panesar who donated auction items helping the fundraising effort for Barry Goudriaan.

“Go Dharmic causes and the team are very close to my heart. I have been involved since the beginning and I am proud to play a part in helping educate thousands of children,” said Panesar.

Barry runs the Original Everest Marathon for GD schools in India, Nepal and South Africa. The funds raised will go towards the much-needed development of underprivileged government schools, some of which Barry will be visiting when he travels to Nepal for the Original Everest Marathon in December.

The ‘Sport For Good’ charity dinner was supported by a number of sporting icons like Brain Stein, former Luton & England football legend, Maria Costello MBE, the fastest woman on a motorcycle. Neil Burns, former Leicestershire, and Essex first-class player and head of London County. Northamptonshire Cricket players Rob Keogh, Rob Newton, and head coach David Ripley were also present. Other notable guests included Zara Balfour, award-winning director of the movie Children of the Snowland, Dolly Ahuja, Mrs. India UK, million-copy bestselling author Louise Jensen, Om Gurung MBE, Regimental Sergeant Major with the Gurkha Signals, Dr. Ken West, Performance Scientist and Dr. Brian Hemmings, CEO of Golf Mind.
