Venus announce new sponsor!

I am delighted to announce a new sponsor for the Venus team.

The Canary Wharf Group has supported the club for a long time and now the Canary Wharf Contractors Fund is going to help the ladies team in a key period of growth. 

This is in return for having their logo printed on to the current match shirts, ready for next season, and to have their logo on the Venus section of the website.

Scott and I went to collect the cheque at a special presentation in Canary Wharf Group's One Canada Square offices on Tuesday evening.

Cormac MacCrann of the Canary Wharf Contractors Fund (also pictured) said “Canary Wharf Contractors Fund is delighted to add Millwall Ladies to the wide range of local sports clubs which, along with Canary Wharf Group, it supports. Millwall Rugby Club already does great work in Tower Hamlets and beyond by providing sports opportunities for local people and the developing Ladies team will significantly enhance their profile in the community. We wish the Ladies team every success in the coming season.”

Canary Wharf Contractors Fund (CWCF) is a charity established by Canary Wharf Contractors (CWC), a wholly owned subsidiary of Canary Wharf Group Plc, in 2001. CWCF  is administered by representatives of CWC and its supply chain and together it raises funds to support local and national causes with particular emphasis on children, the local community, sport and the construction industry.

If you know of any business that you think could sponsor another area of the club, please let me know.
