Thu 12 Mar 2015
Marsh & Parsons, the estate agent with 23 offices including Richmond, East Sheen and Barnes among others, has become official sponsors of Richmond Cricket Club for the 2015 season.
Rex Chalmers, manager of Marsh & Parsons Richmond, identified the continued commitment of RCC in the development of sport in the Borough as one of the main reasons why Marsh & Parsons want to support the club. The agreement will include funding towards kit and equipment for Richmond's very large youth section.
"When the opportunity arose to support a local organisation in Richmond that not only enriches the local community but also actively encourages participation in sport from a young age, we were very keen to be involved", explains Rex. "Their strong ethos on delivering outstanding results through determination and teamwork closely aligns with our Marsh & Parsons values, and we are excited to be involved with a club who are an integral part of Richmond."
Chris Goldie, Chairman of Richmond Cricket Club, welcomed Marsh & Parsons as the club's main sponsor. "With over 400 Juniors, a growing women and girls section and adult sides competing at the highest levels of amateur cricket, we are thrilled that Marsh & Parsons has decided to support our ambitions at all levels. These are exciting times for the club as we approach the 2015 season. Not only do we hope to enjoy success on the field, we will also be opening our new second ground, developed in partnership with the London Borough of Richmond upon Thames and Christ's School, and are looking forward to hosting two Middlesex T20 Blast matches at Old Deer Park. The commitment of Marsh & Parsons is a tremendous boost to everyone involved with Richmond Cricket Club."
