Frome Rugby Club signs two year sponsorship deal with Old Mill
Accountants and financial planners Old Mill are the proud new sponsors of Frome Rugby Club.
The West Country firm, which has branches in Shepton Mallet, Dorchester, Yeovil, Exeter and Melksham, has agreed on a two year deal to become the main sponsor of the successful Gypsy Lane based club.
“We were holding a rugby dinner and announced that we were looking for a new main sponsor,” explains Frome Rugby Club’s promotions director Greg Bird. “Paul Treby from Old Mill, who has been the club’s accountant for as long as I can remember, is a big rugby fan and is often at our games, was at that particular dinner and got in touch.
Greg says that Old Mill becoming the main sponsor was a natural development for two organisations that have worked together for many years and says the deal will be beneficial for both parties.
“It is important that a club sponsor can enjoy genuine benefits from the agreement as well as investing in the local community,” he said.
“Old Mill is keen to promote their business to club members and to raise awareness of the full range of services they can offer, while we are keen to involve Old Mill in events at the club and will ensure the investment is used wisely to enhance the services and facilities the club members and supporters enjoy”
Paul, consultant at Old Mill agrees, and says he thinks the partnership will be a very successful one.
“Frome Rugby Club does a lot for the people in this area – it has a fantastic junior section, which is very popular, and does a lot for the young people in the community, encouraging them to enjoy sport as well as teaching them about the importance of team work and community spirit.
“Old Mill has always had a strong sense of community – we are all local people with a genuine passion for the area in which we work and live – and we wanted to be able to offer something back to the community, so becoming the main sponsor was an opportunity not to be missed.”
