Local Rugby Club wins with sponsorship from PAYCE
Burraneer Rugby Club has signed a long-term sponsorship agreement with Sydney-based property development and investment company, PAYCE.
The sponsorship will see the club receive $60,000 over three years in financial support.
At a recent sponsors' thank you Big Breakfast held at the John Dwyer Oval in Caringbah, the Burraneer Rugby club was presented with its first cheque from PAYCE at the Minis' Gala Day.
Club president, Dave Waugh said "Our members and supporters are over the moon with this gesture from the company and excited about the opportunities it provides for the future".
PAYCE is well-known and respected across the Shire for its support of many community and charity based events. "The PAYCE sponsorship is one of the most significant and valuable associations for the club in its 60 year history and we are most fortunate to have PAYCE on board for this long-term partnership".
Brian Boyd – Sport and Support are Rugby traditions.
PAYCE's Managing Director, Brian Boyd said it was a pleasure to support the Burra Rugby Club, particularly because of its focus on junior rugby.
"The club does an excellent job providing sporting opportunities for all ages to enjoy Rugby, the camaraderie and the enthusiastic team spirit that goes with the sport is shared by all within the club.
"I am particularly impressed with the annual Fiji tour, which has long been a tradition within the club. The opportunity for working dads to spend quality time with their young teenage sons in another country and experience a different culture is highly commendable and rewarding for all involved," said Mr Boyd.
PAYCE to the Rescue when Fiji Tour founders.
"We were so grateful to PAYCE, when last year, they helped us out after the annual 'Father and Son' Under 14s' Fiji tour was in danger of not proceeding due to a shortfall in our fundraising efforts," says Club president, Dave Waugh.
"With the assistance of PAYCE, during last year's Fiji tour, the club was able to hand over two complete sets of jerseys to underprivileged schools and each of the 16 U14 players who toured took laptop computers, which they presented to local schools in need.
PAYCE came to the party with a rescue package that not only put the Fiji tour back on track, but allowed us to move forward with some programs that had been put on the backburner.
"Plans for this year's tour are progressing well and our fundraising events are in full swing with the tour dates fast approaching," he said.
Upgrades provide welcome relief
"Now that we have a long term relationship with the company, it opens up a range of opportunities that will assist in the development of junior rugby in the Shire and provide better facilities at our home ground," Mr Waugh said.
High on the club's list is the replacement of the clubhouse roof to complement other infrastructure upgrades that have been completed or are nearing completion at the ground.
The sponsorship is also funding additional sets of club jerseys and registration fees and outfits for many young players from underprivileged backgrounds.
Burra Rugby Club.
The club has currently more than 300 families involved across age groups that cater for Under 6s, with the youngest players being four-years old, to Seniors with the oldest player coming in at 64.
"Participation and interest in women's rugby is on the rise - even more topical after Australia's fantastic gold medal result at the Rio Olympics," said Mr Waugh.
"One of the high points for the club last season was the success of the undefeated PAYCE Burraneer U14s Girls Seven team who won their age group premiership in the NSW Youth Sevens Series.
"Five of our young team members have already selected in the NSW Girls Sevens Development squad and we are keen to welcome new players into the club," Mr Waugh said.
"We want to provide every opportunity we can for our local girls to enjoy the sport and wherever it might take them. Who knows, we may have a player on the path to representing Australia at a future Olympic Games.
