Presenting the cheque to Kola Peregrino in Ikeja, GM, Lagos State Printing Corporation, who stood in for the Lagos State government, president of the club, Ademola Akin-Taylor said the cheque was the club’s widow’s mite towards state’s battle against the rampaging Covid-19.

" We are very impressed with Lagos State and the governor, who is one of our patrons; so automatically, we have to support him in his fight against the virus,” Akin-Taylor said.

He added that the club considered the gesture more pertinent because the state, as its host, has always supported it, especially by staging its annual Governor’s Cup tennis tournament in its facility.

He enjoined other clubs and societies to emulate what the Lagos Lawn Tennis Club has done and support the government in whatever capacity they can to ensure that the Covid-19 pandemic is finally contained and eradicated in Lagos and the entire country.
