As CurrencyFair grows and helps even more people across the globe save money on their overseas bank transfers, we still aim to help the local communities wherever we can get involved.
Our Australian office is in Newcastle, around 150km north of Sydney, and as self-confessed rugby fanatics it made sense to get involved in the scene there. Hence our sponsorship of the University of Newcastle RUFC.
We think our logo looks great on their shirt – below is No.8 Ian Parkinson posing in the stripes for the TheHerald.com.au.
We’ve been sponsoring University of Newcastle RUFC for two years. CurrencyFair director and founder Sean Barrett is a member of the club’s committee, whose aim is to “encourage and promote the game of rugby union at the Club and the University of Newcastle. The Foundation will guarantee the future of the Club by enabling continued financial support for the development and support of the Club.”
The situation has improved so much that they have two teams in their respective finals this year, and were named “Club of the Year” too by the NHRU – not a bad season at all!
