The Dominica Cricket Association presented National cricket captain Tyrone Theophile with a cheque of over $17 thousand dollars to go towards his medical expenses.
The funds were presented to the National Cricketer and former Windwards Captain on Thursday afternoon during a small ceremony at the Windsor Park Stadium.
Theophile suffered serious head injuries following an accident on Christmas Day last year.
The Dominica Cricket Association in its effort to assist embarked on a series of fundraising activities.
The operation is expected to cost in the region of 25 thousand euro.
The government of Dominica has agreed to meet the expenses associated with the procedure, while the funds which were presented to Theophile on Thursday will go towards post-surgery expenses.
Theophile said he was grateful for the assistance given to him.
