A very special day for Miller Commercial at Truro RFC
29th October, 2019Saturday saw us hold our annual sponsorship event at Truro RFC. Attendees who packed the sponsor's bar and terrace included Partners Peter Heather, Mike Nightingale, Brian Botting and Nick Maffey plus many of Miller Commercial staff, our clients, professional network and suppliers. It was an extra special day for our business as we were celebrating the 25th anniversary of the company becoming fully independent.
The team, led by Captain (and Club Director) Ross Dennington (3rd from right above) were playing South Molton but the rain and wind couldn't stop them playing a blinding game resulting in a superb 52-5 win.
Thomas Smith, Head of Commercial Agency (left), made an eloquent and heart warming speech to thank our guests for their continued support, and to Truro RFC for their hospitality and to pay our respects to Club following the loss of two of their 'family': long time supporter Geoff Bond and club secretary Stuart Nicholls, who both sadly passed away on 9th October after battling cancer.
At the Club's request Miller Commercial and their guests did a collection in aid of Cornwall Hospice Care and Oliver Hoare, Head of Fundraising (2nd from right above) for the charity commented, "Thank you to Miller Commercial for welcoming us to their celebration of 25 years in business, marking the occasion as sponsors for Truro Rugby Club. A collection, held for Cornwall Hospice Care raised £279.38, helping to fund 14 hours of nursing care – thank you."
A huge thank you on behalf of the Partners and staff of Miller Commercial for everyone who made this event a very memorable one. Special thanks to bar manager Frankie Webb and player/club treasurer Luke Tidball and to Captain Ross Dennington and his team for a superb game. We are very proud sponsors of Truro RFC!
