Steve Martin, UCA Students’ Union Farnham Campus Officer, said:
“We are delighted to announce this special partnership between Bowan Arrow and UCA Rugby Club, and it’s a pleasure to be associated with Bowan Arrow as our main shirt sponsor for this season.”
Andy Grant, Director at Bowan Arrow, added:
“Bowan Arrow recognises the importance of investing in and supporting our local community; UCA is a natural fit for Bowan Arrow as digital media studies can often lead on to careers in marketing, which we fully endorse. Since rugby is also one of my passions, the UCA Farnham Rugby Club was an obvious choice for sponsorship!
Bowan Arrow has also recently donated a £100 John Lewis gift voucher to a silent auction, held on 17th November 2012, as part of a fundraising event for St. Mary's School, Frensham, Surrey.
St Mary's is a small, Church of England infant school in which staff, governors, parents and friends of the school work together to ensure that the children have a caring, supportive and happy start to their school careers. The school was founded in 1845 as the village school and still retains close links with St Mary’s village church and the village community.
Becky Warnock, on behalf of the Friends of St. Mary's School (FOSMS), commented:
“Bowan Arrow’s support is an extremely important contribution to the school. We raised just over £5,000 at the Bazaar, which makes it our most successful event ever! We are very grateful to Bowan Arrow for their sponsorship and for their general support of our village school. The money will now allow us to buy an audiovisual system for our school hall which will enhance the childrens' learning. It will be a wonderful addition for music and drama, lectures and assemblies.”
