Redball recognised at Sports Awards.
Drum Property Group has been awarded ‘Business Community Partner of the Year’ at the Aberdeen Sports Awards 2019 for its Redball Programme.
For the fourth year in a row Drum Property Group has provided increased funding to facilitate Aberdeenshire Cricket clubs’ delivery of the Redball Taking Cricket into the Community initiative, an 8-week introduction to cricket for local primary schools. In addition, Drum provides marketing support and senior management staff attend school festival days.
“The support and encouragement we have received from Drum Property Group has been fantastic and allowed us to deliver a year-round programme. As soon as we finish a block of coaching the schools ask ‘when are you coming back’ as the children have so much fun.
We are beginning to see the transition of children from the schools to our junior section as they start what we hope will be a lifelong cricket journey. This is key to the continuation of cricket not just at the club but in the Aberdeen area.“
