LEADING disability employment services provider, NOVA Employment, has signed as a Gold Sponsor for the Skyring Wheelaroos, bolstering ongoing support for the team’s upcoming Rugby League World Cup campaign.
NOVA Employment CEO Martin Wren, along-time advocate for inclusive sport, said: “We are very pleased to be supporting the Skyring Wheelaroosas they head to England to take on the world’s best. Having spoken with some of the players, I know they are fixed in their determination to bring home the trophy.
“We support organisations like the Wheelaroos because they are another example to the world of the capabilities of people with disabilities, they are determined, resilient and focussed; all the great qualities you also want in an employee. People with disabilities have so much to offer the workforce, in many instances they just need employers to give them a go and we exist to assist that process.”
Wheelchair Rugby League Australia Chair Martin Meredith said: “We welcome NOVA Employment’s support of the team and commend them for their track record in empowering people with disability and their support of inclusive sports like Wheelchair Rugby League”.
The Skyring Wheelaroos will proudly wear the NOVA Employment logo on the sleeve of their official jerseys throughout the World Cup campaign that will be broadcast on the Fox Sports network throughout Australia and worldwide via the BBC.
Australia’s Wheelchair Rugby League World Cup campaign will kick off Thursday, November 3, 2022, when the Skyring Wheelaroos take on England at Copper Box Arena, London.
