P2S RUGBYWORKS have signed our first GOLD SPONSOR! We are delighted to have the magnificent support of Gavin Trim and Nationwide Training to help our youngsters in more ways than one.
In addition to much needed funding, Nationwide Training have agreed to put together scholarship opportunities for our youngsters to aspire to. They will provide 2 scholarships each year over the course of the 3 year agreement, in addition to hosting employability workshops to give our students exposure to the opportunities available in the transport and logistics industry.
Nationwide Training is a registered training organisation delivering transport and logistics training in Western Australia for over 20 years. Specialising in Forklift, Dangerous goods and Chain of Responsibility courses.
Managing Director, Gavin Trim said “When I found out about P2S Rugbyworks and the support that they provide to young Australians through sporting programmes I wanted to assist this fantastic organisation and the work they are doing.
As a business owner and former Rugby player it is great to be able to provide sponsorship support to P2S Rugbyworks and provide access to the transport and logistics industry in Western Australia via our nationally recognised training courses and our client network.”
Fraser Griggs, CEO of P2S RUGBYWORKS Inc. couldn’t hide his delight at the deal, stating “I’m so pleased we have finally secured a GOLD SPONSOR here in Western Australia. The most pleasing aspect is that this is not simply a partnership that provides us with much needed funding; it also provides opportunities for the marginalised youth of WA. Gavin is particularly keen to help these youngsters out directly in the form of scholarships. We love his vision and that he shares the same objectives as us for the future of our program. Hopefully other businesses in WA will follow Gavin’s lead and help us support us in our aim of getting our youngsters into long-term, sustainable education, training and employment”
P2S RUGBYWORKS are pleased to welcome another high profile ambassador to our team to help us spread the word, grow the game and inspire our marginalised youngsters.
Cobie-Jane Morgan joins us from her Brisbane base after a glowing endorsement from Wallaroos Head Coach & P2S RUGBYWORKS Coaching Ambassador Dwayne Nestor.
We asked Cobie-Jane to tell us a bit about herself and her motivation for joining our team:
Who I am-
Plumber by trade, teacher by day.
Have recently changed careers and made the move from Sydney to Brisbane and fortunate enough to then be selected into the Qld Super W squad.
Played for the Wallaroos since 2009 as my first debut in Samoa was a qualifier for the 2010 World Cup.
Very passionate about helping others in all facets of life and hoping to inspire many young Australian kids to be the best version of themselves.
Motivation- Everyday the sun rises and it’s a new opportunity to be a better version of yesterday. I am inspired by many strong women who have impacted my life not just in sport but life in general. I have been surrounded by independent strong wahine (women) who have culturally, emotionally & physically shaped me to be the woman I am today & I hope I can pass that legacy on to the future generation.
Rugby & any form of training or physically activity is my outlet & if I can impact one youngster positively in this form I know I’ve succeeded.
