Shawbrook Bank is proud to be the Official Banking Partner of Saracens Rugby Club, one of the most successful UK rugby clubs of all time. The sponsorship includes our support across the Men’s and Women’s rugby teams, the Mavericks netball team as well as being a proud partner of the Saracens Foundation, the charitable and community arm of the Club.
Shawbrook is an ambitious organisation and one committed not only to thinking differently in the way we work, but also to making a difference – to our customers, our people, those professionals we work alongside and to the communities in which we operate. Through this partnership with Saracens, we want to continue making a difference together.
The partnership between the Bank and Saracens sees a shared belief in inclusivity. Saracens has been taking great strides to address gender inequality within professional sport by investing heavily in both its Women’s rugby team and its netball team, the Saracens Mavericks. Shawbrook, too has taken steps to improve diversity and inclusion within the Bank and the wider financial services sector and will work with the Saracens Foundation to support charitable and grassroots initiatives.
As part of the sponsorship Shawbrook will also provide ongoing financial support to the 20-year-old Saracens Foundation, whose mission is to transform lives on and off the pitch to build stronger communities. As the Club’s Charitable arm, the Foundation delivers a wide range of initiatives, all designed to use sport to bring about positive social change and improve the lives of local people, with a focus on those who often find themselves excluded from participation.
