The Sydney Bears are proud new announce our new major sponsor for 2018, All About Caring!
In 2001, All About Caring was founded to provide community-based support to assist people to live independently in their own homes, and to enhance their quality of life. This continues to be the sole mission of the organisation. All About Caring has been fortunate to support many people since that time based on their reputation of flexible support services and quality of communication with the individuals they support and their families/carers.
The individuals All About Caring support live in different states, in metro and rural communities, and encompass a diverse range of backgrounds and support needs with a high proportion of individuals who access their service requiring support for their complex care and support needs. All supports are individually planned to meet the specific needs, goals and preferences of the person being supported, in a fully customised consumer-directed approach.
The founders of All About Caring Mark and Danielle Bennett and their children only saw Ice Hockey for the first-time last year and have fallen in love with the sport. It lead them to stepping in to support the Sydney Bears in 2018. “We went to a game mid last year and fell in love with the intensity and speed of the game. Afterwards we met the players at The Ranch and they made us feel a part of the Bears family, we knew we found a sport we could connect with. The Bears also have a great family following which fits with our culture at All About Caring”
Sydney Bears GM Wayne Hellyer is excited to bring on another new sponsor to the team and is looking forward to getting the season underway “All About Caring came to every game after their first at Macquarie and even came on a road trip to Adelaide last year to support the Bears so they clearly love all team we’re looking forward to giving them something to cheer about all year!”
The Bears start the season with two away games in Canberra on 21st April at 5.30pm and against the Ice Dogs for Derby No: 1 on Saturday 5th May.
Our first home game back at Macquarie Ice Rink is 6 May at 5.00pm.
