This May, we were proud to announce our partnership with Victorian AFL team, Geelong Cats. Our support for the team comes alongside our Victorian expansion of the firm including the recent opening of Shine’s new Geelong CBD branch.
Shine’s support for the team will have us taking part in some of the Club’s key community programs including ‘Just Think’. This program aims to influence cultural change in regards to alcohol-fuelled violence.
The partnership will see us joining forces with the Cats until their 2017 season, where we hope to provide greater exposure for Victorian communities and help create awareness about important issues.
Shine Lawyers’ General Manager of Victoria, said the partnership would create new and far reaching opportunities for the firm which would allow Shine to help more people right wrong in regional Victoria.
“Supporting local sporting clubs is an important part of our continued commitment to the people we provide legal assistance to every day. It’s another way we can get to know our clients and listen to their needs and hear about the big issues affecting them and their families,”
“Geelong is one of the oldest and most established clubs in the AFL and we are proud to be partnering with such a well-respected team whose values are aligned to our own here at Shine.”
Geelong Chief Executive, Brian Cook, spoke of the importance of community-based work and how Shine Lawyers will help in raising awareness about important issues.
“Just Think is a powerful program driving significant cultural change through editorial, social media and community engagement. The support from Shine Lawyers not only aids in driving the message through local sporting clubs, but also brings national awareness to this very important issue,” Cook said.
