One of Cornwall’s leading companies in the field of finance has joined forces with one of the county’s top performing teams on the pitch.
Worldwide Financial Planning is now an official sponsor of the Cornish Pirates.
The independent financial advisors, based in Truro and Wadebridge, are supporting the team by sponsoring its shirts and programmes.
Peter McGahan, Worldwide’s managing director, said: “I’m thrilled to be backing a team as popular as the Pirates.
“I think it’s important for local businesses to get involved with, and support, the Cornish community.”
The new relationship between award winning Worldwide and trophy winning Pirates is much enjoyed by passionate rugby fan Peter and his squad of financial advisers.
“I love rugby and a colleague of mine, Peter Meeson, is an ex-Wasps player, so supporting a rugby team just made sense,” added Peter.
“Watching the Pirates is a brilliant day out, for the whole family, whether it’s the game or the Cadgwith singers afterwards.
“Being a part of this team and their success is a delight for me.”
Mr McGahan also jokes about the role that fate has had to play in this relationship.
“Their fly half, Gareth Steenson, is from the same town as me in Northern Ireland, so with a coincidence like that I think Worldwide were destined to be a sponsor of the team.”
Kat Vardy, the Pirates marketing manager, is pleased to have Worldwide on board and says Peter’s enthusiasm for rugby is clear to see.
“It’s great to get financial advice from such a renowned company, and all their support is really appreciated.
“Peter and his team have also been to watch several of our games now, which is fantastic, and is another form of support that is also really appreciated.”
