Volvo retailer in Ipswich backs the county’s cricket team

Ipswich Volvo retailer Donalds bowled a googly recently by announcing a partnership with Suffolk Cricket.

The sponsorship deal sees Donalds provide the Suffolk Crickets Development Team with clothing kit which was showcased for the first time at this year’s Suffolk Show.  The team carries out the day-to-day activities within Suffolk cricket to deliver and support programmes to grow cricket within the county.

Rob Jones, Cricket Operations Manager commented: “We are delighted to be associated with such a prestigious brand as Volvo and a well-known and highly respected local business. Without support from companies such as Donalds, the team would not perform at the level it does and we would not be able to provide our all-important development programmes, which enable volunteers and players of all ages and abilities the chance to be involved with cricket in Suffolk”

Donalds, which is located at West End Road although will be moving later this summer to the high-profile Futura Park in Nacton to a state-of-the-art purpose-built retail centre, already had an established relationship with the club having supplied two V40 models to the organisation.

Donalds’ Group Marketing Manager Benjamin Grant commented: “We are always looking at different ways to connect with organisations in the county by means of support, and Suffolk Cricket is the perfect partnership. They have big ambitions for the coming years and are extremely active in local communities playing an important role in developing the the county’s future cricketeers.  The fact that they have already chosen two Volvo V40’s to run in their business demonstrates the mutual admiration and trust.  We at Donalds like many, shall now be turning our attentions to the crease now the football world cup is over!
