The Broncos Are Back – in more ways than one!

February 17th, 2014
2013 ended with a somewhat uncertain future for the Broncos. They became homeless and faced administration—after being forced to leave their home of 13 years: the Twickenham Stoop—but a groundshare agreement with Barnet FC appears to have saved them. And, according to their head coach Tony Rea, they’re well settled into their new home: The Hive in Edgware, and are enjoying the upgraded facilities and more convenient location. So with great relief we can say that the Broncos are here to stay, and we shall be continuing our sponsorship of them too, for the 2ndfull season! Gus MacKay, chief executive of the London Broncos, has said: “Selco Builders Warehouse has become a very strong supporter of the London Broncos and we are thrilled that is continuing. It’s a fantastic partnership for all parties and we will look to back Selco in any way we can.” Helen Cooper, Selco’s Head of Marketing has said: “We have built up a very strong relationship with the Broncos and we are delighted that this is continuing into 2014.” Now their off-site troubles are behind them they have an exciting season ahead, with several new signings including the Wigan Warriors prop James Greenwood, 22, the Auckland World Cup full-back Nesiasi Mataitonga, 20, the Melbourne Storm three-quarter Denny Solomona, 20, and the former England hooker Scott Moore, 25. They have also signed three Leeds Rhinos on loan for the season to help with the shortfall while players such as Keiran Dixon sit out the earlier stages of the season to recover from injuries. And so, to the Super League, kicking off on Feb 16th! Come on Broncos! Remember to keep up with the games, they’ll be covered by Sky Sports, so it’s easier than ever to catch the Broncos in action.

SELCO AND BRONCOS TO PROVIDE CHARITY BOOST

May 16th, 2013

Selco Builders Warehouse and London Broncos rugby league team will unite in the name of charity later this month.

The Broncos home mouth-watering match with Wigan Warriors on Saturday 18th May has been selected as the nominated charity match for the season. As main club sponsors to the Broncos, it is Selco’s official charity, Macmillan Cancer Support, who will benefit from the funds raised at the Twickenham Stoop stadium on that day.

“It’s great to be able to join with the London Broncos to stage an official charity match and the aim is two-fold,” said Selco Head of Marketing Helen Cooper.

“We’re hoping that supporters dig deep to support the charity financially but it’s also helping the charity to raise awareness of the great work it carries out and how it can help families affected by cancer.

 “Wigan Warriors remain a huge name in rugby league so it’s an ideal opportunity to stage our Broncos charity game to reach out to as many people as possible.”

A percentage of ticket sales will go direct to Macmillan, while supporters will have an extra chance to donate via bucket collections on the day and using a dedicated text number. Colleagues from across Selco’s 18 branches in London will be assisting on the day, and Selco hope for a bumper day of fund-raising as they aim to reach their target of generating £100,000 by the end of 2013 for Macmillan.

Events held throughout 2012 and the first half of this year has ensured more than £60,000 has already been raised.

YOUNGSTERS AID CHARITY PUSH

Pupils from a Hertfordshire school will be try-ing their best for charity when they support a special match at London’s sole top flight rugby league club.

The Marlborough Science Academy, based on Watling Street in St Albans, will be represented by 30 pupils at the London Broncos home Super League match with Wigan Warriors at the Twickenham Stoop on Saturday 18th May.

That game has been selected as the Broncos charity match to raise funds for Macmillan Cancer Support, the nominated charity of Broncos’ main sponsor Selco Builders Warehouse.

The youngsters from Marlborough will form a guard of honour for the two teams prior to the game, before taking part in the popular half-time Buck and Dusty Selco Cement Mixer Challenge, a regular fixture at Broncos home matches this season.

Selco Builders Warehouse has also provided the school with 100 free tickets, allowing teachers and parents to attend the game along with the 30 participating children.

“It is fantastic opportunity for our students to be involved in a big sporting occasion and charity fundraising event,” said Chris Packard, head of physical education at the Marlborough Science Academy.

“They are all looking forward to the day and we would like to thank Selco Builders Warehouse and London Broncos for the opportunity.”

A percentage of ticket sales will go direct to Macmillan, while supporters will have an extra chance to donate via bucket collections on the day and using a dedicated text number.

Colleagues from Selco’s 18 London branches will assist at the game as the company aims to move closer to their fund-raising target of £100,000 by the end of 2013. They have already raised more than £60,000.

“The fundraising activity taking place around the country has been excellent and we are looking forward to joining forces with the London Broncos for the latest event,” said Selco Head of Marketing Helen Cooper.

“We are also delighted we have been able to invite youngsters from Marlborough Science Academy to play a prominent role in what will be a memorable day.”
