In the heart of the North East, where passion for sports runs deep and community support is unwavering, we have taken a step to invest in the local spirit.
We are proud to announce our sponsorship of the Sunderland Keelmen RFC team strips, a gesture that reflects our commitment to the region we call home.
At Communicate Technology, we recognise the importance of being an integral part of the community. Our headquarters are nestled in Wynyard, Stockton-on-Tees, and our roots run deep in the North East, with many of our clients and closest partners situated right by us.
Sponsoring the rugby club is more than just a corporate decision; it’s a way of giving back to the community that has supported us throughout our journey. The North East is a region filled with vibrant culture, a strong work ethic, and a love for sports, and we want to be a part of the catalyst for growth and recognition in this remarkable area.
Two of our very own stand as a testament to our commitment to local sports. Konrad Rutkowski and Dave Knight are not just a part of Communicate Technology; they are also dedicated players for the Sunderland team. Our Lead Field Engineer, Dave, and our Chief Financial Officer, Konrad’s involvement with the rugby club is not a coincidence; it’s a reflection of our ethos. We believe in supporting our employees’ passions and encouraging them to be active participants in the communities they call home.
Explaining why we decided on the sponsorship, Konrad Rutkowski said: “Sunderland RFC, established in 1873, has a rich history of rugby excellence in the North East. The Keelmen team embodies the spirit of community sports. By sponsoring their strips, we aim to bolster their efforts and ensure local talent continues flourishing.”
“Our sponsorship of the Sunderland Keelmen RFC team isn’t just about putting our name on jerseys; it’s about fostering opportunities for local talent to thrive. We hope that our support will inspire more individuals and businesses to get involved in promoting the North East’s unique culture and sporting heritage. And, we look forward to playing an active part in the team, both on and off the pitch!”
