Marking a perfect stat to the new season, its first in National League 2 South, Bournemouth Rugby Club has landed its biggest-ever sponsorship deal, with Ringwood-based Churchill Retirement Living.
Churchill is the fastest growing privately-owned company in the retirement market and now enjoys a highly visible profile at all Lions’ games.
“We approached Churchill because we felt they had the same trajectory as the club – locally based but expanding,” says Bournemouth RFC’s vice chairman Anthony Williamson. “I know it will be a fantastic partnership. Our club is strictly amateur and we’re determined to keep it that way, so sponsorship deals such as this are crucial to the club’s future.”
Churchill Retirement Living’s chairman and group managing director Spencer McCarthy adds: “We are delighted to sponsor Bournemouth Rugby Club because they are a local organisation with the ambition to be recognised at a national level.
“This sponsorship opportunity along with others will help us to expand the company in line with our ambitious goals for the next five years. We are all looking forward to seeing the company name at the new season’s games.”
