Speaking at the event, Cricket ACT James Allsopp spoke on how important the partnership is to Cricket ACT: “The vehicles for Cricket ACT are fundamental for us to deliver our day to day activities. Most of our vehicles are driven by our outstanding coaches, getting all their equipment out to different stations to inspire the next generation of cricketers to excel - And, obviously Brad [Van Dam, Head Curator] and his team, their curation services go all throughout Canberra from the grassroots and our local grounds to EPC Solar Park and Manuka Oval, where they’re going to have a bit of work on their hands following the announcement today [Australia v India Men’s matches at Manuka Oval]!”

In exchange for the provision of first-class vehicles to help achieve our strategic priorities, Cricket ACT works hard to coordinate opportunities for Canberra Toyota to assist the Canberra Cricket Community. For every purchase of a new or used car purchased by a member of our local Cricket community, Canberra Toyota donate $150 to Cricket ACT or the local cricket club of the purchaser’s choice. “What’s been outstanding over the last period of time is we’ve been able to generate several leads that have led to sales for Canberra Toyota,” continued Mr Allsopp, “It’s really important it’s a two-way partnership and we want do everything we can to generate sales for Canberra Toyota and provide opportunities for our cricket community to purchase fantastic new and used vehicles through this partnership”. Queanbeyan, Tuggeranong and Ginninderra benefited from the partnership earlier this year, having received funds through their members purchasing vehicles from Canberra Toyota.
