Sydney, Australia, June 27, 2018 --(PR.com
)-- Bloomex will be supporting Hockey Australia with a two-dollar donation option at checkout as part of their ongoing partnership. Customers can simply choose to donate before they process their order. All proceeds will go directly to Hockey Australia’s Pilbara Community Hockey Program (PCHP).
The PCHP gives children in some of Australia’s most remote areas the opportunity to enjoy team sport in an inspiring and encouraging environment. The program includes sessions with players from the Hockeyroos (ranked number five in the world) and the Kookaburras (ranked number one).
“Hockey is an inclusive sport. It’s played from beach to bush by players of all ages and abilities and is so much more than just a game. It’s an opportunity to be part of a team, to maintain a healthy lifestyle and to be surrounded by inspiring mentors. Our community program gives children access to all those things, and to have Bloomex’s support in addition to that of Fortescue is wonderful,” says Hockey CEO Matt Favier.
“This is an excellent initiative and we are proud to be supporting it,” says Sue McDonald, Director of PR and Corporate sponsorship at Bloomex. “It’s a wonderful program and we are glad to provide our customers the chance to give back to the community and help make this sport more accessible to children in remote areas.”
