Grassroots sporting clubs don’t survive without the support of local business like Greater Bank.
That was the simple message from Casino Bulls President, Andrew Lawson, on the eve of the 2018 Far North Coast Rugby Union season.
Greater Bank has again committed its support to the club that has been supporting rugby in the region for the past 45 years. In 2018, the club will field two senior teams and nine junior teams, which comes at an enormous financial cost.
“This year will be one of rebuilding for our senior club, while for the juniors we have seen a real growth in numbers, which is great for our future,” Andrew said.
“The cost to put these teams on the park increases every year and our players’ fees cover just a percentage of our overall costs. Sponsorship from Greater Bank, as well as other local businesses, is incredibly important to the success of the club both on and off the field.
“Essentially, we don’t survive without it, and can’t thank them enough for the support.”
The sponsorship provided by Greater Bank has assisted the club in purchasing uniforms and will also go towards training equipment as well as repairs and maintenance around the clubhouse.
The Casino Bulls kick off their senior competition on 24 March, and Juniors after the Easter break.
