Coral Coast Ford comes in to bat for Brothers Cricket Club

The Brothers Cricket Club Bundaberg has presented Coral Coast Ford Principal Dealer, Richard Sears with a framed shirt to recognise a decade of sponsorship.

Speaking to Bundaberg Now, President of Brothers Cricket Club, Anthony Rehbein said Richard had been a major sponsor of Brothers cricket for over a decade, and this was the club’s way of recognising his contribution.

“We wanted to let Coral Coast Ford know of our appreciation in their ongoing sponsorship of Brothers cricket club.

“We’ve gone on to have them as our official sponsors on the front of our playing shirts and dress shirts.”

“When you have sponsors and local businesses supporting the club, that’s supporting almost 300 families within Brothers cricket club.

“So, it’s a legacy and that legacy comes from our sponsors who support and drive the club, because without sponsors it’s difficult to get kids on parks, in uniforms and ready to play, and with Ford and Richard they’ve been supporting us for years.”

With COVID restrictions impacting how the club raises money, that support has been vital.

President Anthony Rehbein said while COVID hadn’t affected play, it did affect their off-season fundraisers.

“Our grand final was the last week before restrictions came in, however we spend a lot of time throughout the winter months driving and raising revenue and funds and we’ve not been able to do that.

So, we’re really reliant on sponsors and families to support the club in whatever way they can.”

Coral Coast Ford Principal Dealer Richard Sears said it was important for businesses to provide that support for local community groups and sporting clubs, particularly during this difficult time.

He also acknowledged and appreciated the club’s shirt, which he said will go straight on the showroom wall at Coral Coast Ford.

“We’ve been associated with the cricket club for a number of years now, and I’ve had my boys play for them as well, but it’s just good to contribute back to the community and support these local sporting clubs,” Richard said.  

“Being a local business and being here for some time, we always want to give back to the community, and we employee a lot of locals, so it’s just a good feeling to contribute back.”

“This shirt is lovely and a nice little honour that we’ll put up in the showroom.”
