Bravus Mining and Resources was front and centre at the North Queensland Toyota Cowboys annual community day recently as excitement for the return of footy season builds across regional Queensland.
Hundreds of footy fans descended on the Cowboys Training Field in South Townsville to celebrate the new “blue and grey” line-up and rub shoulders with their sporting heroes.
Bravus Mining and Resources Head of Community Kate Campbell said as a Cowboys Platinum Partner, the Bravus team was there in full voice to lend their support – and grab a few autographs themselves.
“We’re passionate about supporting organisations, charities, and community groups that are important to our workers and to the communities in north and central Queensland we’re a part of,” Kate said.
“Our Carmichael mine near Clemont in central Queensland and our offices in Townsville and Rockhampton are all in the heart of “Cowboys Country” and our team members are some of the Cowboys’ biggest fans.
“Like us, the Cowboys are about championing regional Queensland and regional Queenslanders, and that’s why we’re incredibly proud to have our logo on the sleeves of their jersey again in 2024.
“We’re equally proud of the work we do with the Cowboys off the field to use their star power to drive health and wellbeing and school attendance programs for local kids.
“It was wonderful to see the fans come out in force for the community day and join us in cheering on the boys all the way from pre-season training to what we hope is a grand final appearance.”
North Queensland Toyota Cowboys Chief Executive Officer Jeff Reibel said he was proud of the benefits the club’s partnership with Bravus Mining and Resources was creating in regional communities.
Bravus Mining and Resources first partnered with the Cowboys in 2019 as a sponsor of the Try for 5! program to boost school attendance rates and education outcomes.
Since 2020 the company has been the presenting partner of the club’s flagship Adopt-A-School community program through which Cowboys players visit local schools to promote an ‘Eat Well, Play Well, Stay Well’ message.
“Both organisations have championed once-in-a-generation projects which will drive investment and jobs in the North for years to come,” Jeff said.
“Through our five-year Platinum Partnership with Bravus, we’ve been able to unite and broaden our efforts to deliver life-changing outreach and education programs to remote and regional kids, through our Try for 5 and Adopt-a-School programs.
“These values and shared commitment to the North, mean we’re proud the Bravus logo will be displayed prominently on the sleeve of the squad’s jersey this coming season.”
