Why I became a Foundation Supporter

The following quotes are from real life ‘Sharks Have Heart’ Foundation Supporters, who have taken their time to let us know why they decided to back the Sharks in our bid to create a true ‘Centre of Excellence’ for the good of the Club and our community.

Tracey Corbin-Matchett

“I have often remarked that The Shire misses out on opportunities for innovation that we hear announced, what seams like every week in Western Sydney, meanwhile our area lacks forward thinking places of technology, innovation and pioneering best practice.”

Lyn Wicks

“I think it is important to foster all members of the local community from young children to adults. Despite their involvement in sport all members of the local area deserve assistance from this worthwhile community project.”

Kylie Pender

“I believe all of the above are equally important. I’m a Sharks supporter,so obviously want them to be successful on the field but I also believe that the other benefits will also enable the long term success and survival of the club. Being engaged with the local community and seeking to access commercial opportunities will mean the Sharks as a team and club will be stronger. If the Centre of Excellence can provide all of these benefits I am very happy to contribute to this wonderful cause. Thank you, Sharks!”

Roy Agostino

“Would be beneficial to get community input, regardless of whether someone has become a ‘Centre of Excellence’ supporter. Then more people in our community are likely to ‘buy into’ the initiative.”

Andy Wallace

“Another great step in the continual evolution of the Sharks as community leaders to expand beyond their remit as being simply a football club.”

Andrew Cannon

“This will symbolise the transition of this club from the cellar to the ‘centre of excellence’ in Australian sport”

Malcolm Scott

“Too all past members who never got to see our Sharkies win a premiership. I have bee a supporter for 48 years, and this is something that I am glad to have witnessed. There are many that did not have this opportunity. And to all the past players who have given their blood and guts to win this elusive premiership. This is who I would like to dedicate my Sharks Have Heart donations. Up, Up Cronulla.”

Mary Munro

“I can’t believe I’ve just won a chance to meet the Sharks! On my last birthday, my family asked what I would like for my next birthday. I said I would like to meet a Sharks player. I really asked to meet ‘one’… not the lot! Winning a prize like this is the chance of a lifetime for me. I’m a proud aboriginal Kamilaroi woman who has supported the Sharks since childhood. I now have five children, 33 grandchildren, three great grandchildren and another on the way!”
