Lewis chose to raise money for the Foundation, which helps young Australians and their families dealing with cancer, for his Year 10 personal project.

“It went really well,” Lewis said.

“I decided to hold a fundraising project for the Ponting Foundation to help kids with cancer.

“Also because I love cricket, I wanted to help get the younger years interested and involved in cricket.”

Lewis said a visit from Perth Scorchers player Marcus Harris made the day particularly special.

“He went around signing people’s equipment. He was giving all the boys cricket tips,” Lewis said.
