Hero Welcome For Cricket Greats at Suncorp Bank Cairns

19 May 2015


Far North Queensland cricket fans will have their dreams come true this week when Suncorp Bank hosts national sporting greats, Jimmy Maher, Andrew Symonds and Nathan Reardon at a free community autograph session at the Cairns Central Branch on Wednesday, 20 May.

The free community event will be the first stop on the Bulls Masters Far North Queensland Tour, followed by a charity Golf Day in support of The Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia, cohosted by Suncorp Bank and Queensland Bulls Masters.

Suncorp Bank Regional Manager for North Queensland, Brad Steele, said he was thrilled to have the Bulls Masters players back in Cairns and provide the local community with the opportunity to meet some of the country’s premier athletes.

“As Australia’s leading regional bank, Suncorp Bank is proud to be aligned with the Bulls Masters as they tour throughout our home state,” Mr Steele said.

“Cricket is one of Australia’s favourite pastimes, and the Bulls Masters’ tours provide Queensland communities with an invaluable opportunity to engage with some of Australia’s premier athletes.

“I encourage all local cricket fans to bring their cricket bats, balls, and memorabilia to the Cairns Central Branch on Wednesday to be signed and kept as a lasting memento of the Bulls Masters legacy.”

While in the region, the cricket legends will also host a coaching clinic for juniors on Thursday, 21 May and take to the field for the Bulls Masters versus Cricket Far North Presidents’ XI at the Barron River Cricket Club on Friday, 22 May.

“Participation in sport is so important for young Queenslanders, and by supporting initiatives like the Bulls Masters Tour, we can highlight the benefits of being part of a team and inspire the next generation to live a healthy and active life,” Mr Steele said.

Suncorp Bank has proudly supported the Queensland Bulls Masters since 2010, to raise much needed funds for local Queensland charity groups and promote active living amongst young Queenslanders.
