Thompson Holden Echuca Shepparton have announced a new three-year partnership with AFL Goulburn Murray.
Collingwood players Steele Sidebottom, Jamie Elliott and Josh Daicos attended the dealership in Shepparton at lunch time yesterday to engage with fans and partake in a community handball competition and this presented a great opportunity to launch the new partnership.
Thompson Holden Echuca Shepparton are part of the Thompson Motor Group who are a 100% locally owned dealer with over 55 years of experience in serving the Goulburn Murray community.
The organisation continues to expand and now offers one of the biggest and most impressive range of new and quality, handpicked Holden, Nissan, Kia and used vehicles throughout Victoria and southern New South Wales.
Thompson Holden Dealer Principal Jarrod Thompson views the partnership as reflection of his organisation’s support for community sport.
“Football Netball clubs are vital community and social hubs for their local towns” he said.
“Our dealership is also an important component of the local community and through this partnership we will celebrate that connection as well as growing our reach and visibility across the region.”
“AFL Goulburn Murray is doing some great things working with clubs and developing the game and Thompson Holden Echuca Shepparton are pleased to be able to support their efforts.”
AFL Goulburn Murray Region General Manager Martin Gleeson is excited to partner with a prominent and leading local organisation.
“This partnership will build on the strong relationship that Thompson Holden Echuca Shepparton has with their local community, especially through the football netball clubs” he said.
“There is significant travel involved in servicing and working with clubs and volunteers across the region and as an organisation it is important that we are out and about and available at times suitable to our stakeholders.”
“The Goulburn Murray region is over 200kms from north to south and this partnership will help staff to be more mobile and accessible to help grow our great game.”
“Look out for AFL Goulburn Murray staff in their branded Thompson Holden Echuca Shepparton vehicles across the region and at games on the weekend.”
