First year Tocumwal Milo coordinator Sheree Craig said the group had been chosen to provide ‘‘on ground entertainment at the Third Vodafone Test at the SCG on Thursday, January 3’’.

‘‘We have 20 children in our Milo program.’’

Of these 20 children, 10 will get the chance of a lifetime to travel to the Test match.

‘‘This is a once in a life time opportunity,’’ Craig said.

‘‘We are the first club given the opportunity to go in the MVCA (Murray Valley Cricket Association).

‘‘So far the MVCA have donated $500. And we will be holding a raffle.’’

The raffle prizes include a signed bat from NSW Speedblitz Blues stars Michael Clarke, Shane Watson, Phillip Hughes, Brad Haddin, Usman Khawaja and many more.

Local businesses have also been approached to lend a hand to get the children to the SCG.

‘‘(Project officer) Hans de Koning has been fantastic with the support given through the whole process,’’ Craig said.

Anyone who is able to assist the group in any way can contact coordinator Sheree Craig on 0428408847 or by email on
