Gayle has always jumped to support and contribute to worthy causes both locally and internationally.

Recently, the ace Jamaican cricketer has been on Instagram soliciting funds to assist a student’s diagnose with leukemia to get treatment.

Lee-Anna Walker, a fifth form student at St Hugh’s High School was diagnosed with Leukemia and will be the recipient of the funds that will help to defray the cost for her bone marrow transplant.

The treatment is set to cost £35,000.

Gayle is not just lobbying for the worthy cause; he is making his own contribution.

“Well, I actually get to meet Lee-Anna Walker not too long ago in Triple Century and I’m donating USD 20,000 towards her treatment,” Gayle wrote.

“For those who willing to assist here’s the details. Bank Name: Victoria Mutual Building Society. Bank Address: 10 Duke Street, Kingston. Bank Swift Code: VMBSJMK1. BOJ Account No: 7005. For further credit to: VMBS Customer Name Antoinette Francis. VMBS Acct number 401183926. #PrayersMoveMountains,” the post continued.

Gayle’s act of kindness is bound to garner support from his more than 600 thousand followers on Instagram.
