The Bury Foxes have successfully scored a major sponsorship deal with a local car retailer to kick start the new rugby season.
Volkswagen Bury St Edmunds based on Northern Way, have invested £1,500 to support the local women’s rugby club. The sponsorship money has been used to cover the cost of branded rugby kits that will be worn by the team at matches.
The Foxes, who played their first match of the season last month, have recently created some 2014 calendars bursting with entertaining images of the team sporting pink bandanas. All proceeds will go to their nominated charity, Suffolk Breakthrough Breast Cancer.
The car retailer is the sole sponsors in the rugby club’s history and according to the team’s manager, Sara Clarke; the deal is a real reward for the important charity work they do.
Sara said: “It’s great to have a major local business supporting the club and everything we stand for.
“The ladies are delighted with their new kit. They have all been working exceptionally hard and this sponsorship deal has definitely given them the boost they deserve.”
The retailer said they are honoured to have been approached to sponsor the talented team.
Robert Rolf, brand manager at Volkswagen Bury St Edmunds said: “We feel privileged to be involved with such an established local group that has served our community for many years. It is great to see the money going to a charitable and gifted club like the Bury Foxes.
“We are proud to be associated with the Foxes and wish them every success.”
