AFC Bournemouth wants to partner with like-minded local businesses to encourage sport, safety and respect in our community.
The club’s charitable Community Sports Trust (CST), works with 4000 people each week, from school children to the over 50s, on projects ranging from healthy living to internet safety.
The trust is looking for local businesses which would be interested in providing sponsorship for one of these projects.
Each has a Cherries first team player as its ambassador, to act as a role model and deliver its key messages.
And this isn’t the only benefit to the partnership, as Fiona Harwood of Yellow Buses, explained:
“Partnering with Cherries’ Community Sport Trust has led to all manner of opportunities we didn’t expect,” said Fiona.
“We have helped develop a safety course with the trust that we have taken around dozens of local schools.
“A safety message delivered with the help of the club, its players and mascot has so much more impact on the children.
“Both Yellow Buses and the Cherries have instantly recognisable brands in the area and partnering was an obvious decision, but it has worked out better than we could have expected.
“Our community is something to be proud of and we’d encourage other businesses to get on board with the Cherries’ Community Sports Trust.”
AFC Bournemouth partnerships executive Amy Marks said: “The Community team does a fantastic job across Bournemouth, Poole and the whole of Dorset and we are encouraging more companies to become part of that.
“AFC Bournemouth is passionate about developing and maintaining strong relationships with all our commercial and community partners and this is an opportunity for local businesses to partner with us and raise their profile, while maximising their corporate social responsibility efforts.”
