Sunshine Coast residents catch cricket fever

13 November 2014

Cricket was the flavour of the day for some lucky Sunshine Coast residents today, when they were greeted by former international sporting legends at Suncorp Bank’s Kawana Waters Branch, as part of the Bulls Masters Sunshine Coast Tour.

Queensland Bulls Masters, Jimmy Maher and Andrew Symonds transformed the Suncorp Bank branch into a sporting haven for cricket enthusiasts, signing merchandise and meeting members of the local community.

Suncorp Bank’s Regional Manager for the Sunshine Coast, Dan Dredge, said 

Suncorp Bank was proud to support the Bulls Masters Tour and provide the local community with the opportunity to meet some of the country’s premier athletes. 

“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 Dredge said. 

“As Australia’s leading regional bank, Suncorp Bank has a long history of supporting organisations and events that contribute long lasting benefits to the regions in which it operates, and our partnership with the Bulls Masters reflects our ongoing commitment to Queensland communities.” 

Local charity SunnyKids – a not-for-profit organisation aimed at supporting disadvantaged children throughout the region, were the overall winners of the day, receiving a signed Bulls Masters Tour Bat, courtesy of Suncorp Bank and the Queensland Bulls Masters and a Suncorp Bank SunWise shade tent to be used at local sporting days and community events.

The Queensland Bulls Masters Sunshine Coast tour will continue tomorrow (Friday, 14 November) with a series of free coaching clinics for local students taking place across the region before the Bulls Masters players take to the field at the Caloundra Cricket Club for a Twenty20 match against the Sunshine Coast Invitational XI.
