Suncorp Bank, Bulls Masters score runs for regional communities

24 January 2014

Former cricketing greats and Cowboys skipper Jonathan Thurston will take on a Charters Towers  Invitational XI at the Goldfield Ashes.

Suncorp Bank Regional General Manager for North Queensland Brad Steele says bringing a cricketing showcase to regional Queensland will be a big hit. 

“The Goldfield Ashes will be a great community day for everyone  in Charters Towers.”

“To have former greats of the game Jimmy Maher, Michael Kasprowicz and local boy Andrew Symonds not only playing in Charters Towers but teaching local kids will be a great injection for local cricket in the area,” Mr Steele said. 

The Bulls Masters organisation is supported by Queensland cricket stars to help communities and local Queensland charities in raising funds for facilities, youth activities and indigenous

Suncorp Bank continues its support of the Bulls Masters organisation, increasing investment into our communities and emphasising the importance of being SunWise. 

“This year we’ll be donating two shade tents to the local junior cricket association as part of our ongoing commitment to regional cricket,” Mr Steele said. 

Twelve Suncorp Bank SunWise tents will be donated to local associations in each town visited throughout the year, and to help make a difference to the local communities.
