Support to sports
GIVING back to the local community is one of Willmot Smash Repair Specialist’s core philosophies.
Managing director Helena Willmot says that along with providing the community with top-notch service on a daily basis, the business is a longterm major sponsor of the Cairns City Lions AFL Club, since 1984.
Joel McCartin from the club says as a sponsor, the business not only provides funds, but much-needed support.
“Willmot Smash Repair has a been a valued sponsor from the early days of Cairns City United right through until today as the Cairns City Lions,” Joel says.
“Their involvement in our functions and events are always enjoyable and Allan now sits on our board helping steer us into the future.
“The continued ongoing support of Allan and the team has been a cornerstone of our club, and its support like theirs that allows community sport to not just survive but flourish.
“We thank WSR, Allan and all the team for all their support and congratulate them on their first 40 years and look forward to the next 40,” he says.
Helena says Willmot is also an active sponsor of Cairns Speedway and the Wildcats Netball Club.
“We also donate to regular charities such as Sporting Wheelies, Royal Flying Doctors and Guide Dogs (and) along the 40 years we have sponsored indoor cricket, tenpin bowling, swimming, basketball and many more.”
The business also supports the local SES teams on their annual Wheel Barrow Races, where Willmot founder Allan actively participates ensuring the teams are well fed and replenished.
