The Battle of the Maroons Joint Organising Committee recently presented Rs 1.5 million each to the Principals of Ananda and Nalanda, from the profits made at the 85th Maroons Battle ( of 2014.)

Lal Hewagama, Sidath Waidyasekera, Jayasiri Ittepana, Mohan Gunadasa, Manjula Wijemanne, Samiru Muthugama and Bimal Wijesinghe represented the Joint Organising Committee at a simple ceremony organised at Ananda College, to hand over the cheques to the two principals.

The Joint Organising Committee takes pride in the fact that they have been able to contribute Rs 20 million so far to the two schools ( Rs 10 million each) from profits made at their Big match since the joint committee undertook organising the match in 2009.
