Fujitsu Community Support
Community Support Competition:
As part of the Fujitsu ‘Support Your Local Sports Club’ competition, clubs were nominated for a prize fund that included cash and Fujitsu Air Conditioning. Mark Taylor, brand ambassador for Fujitsu General believes the prizes can play a direct role in boosting the viability of
the winning clubs.
I think people are always finding reasons these days not to join clubs,” he said. “We’re always time poor or sometimes when we get there, the facilities aren’t great so they think we may as well stay home.
“If you can make these clubs attractive to people to make that little bit of effort to get along, it helps them physically and mentally. There’s no doubt about that. It also fosters that sense of community, which is very important.

Camden Sports Club
Known as ‘Sporties’, Camden Sports Club had a wretched time in 2022, hit by flooding no less than three times. A beloved hub for lawn bowls and more, Sporties relied on the local community to undertake a massive clean-up operation each time. They also needed replacement furniture, technology, know-how and of course money to get back on their feet.
“We had an air conditioner that went down and it’s still down, so what an opportune time this has come. That $10,000 cash and $5,000 in air con will be put to good use because if it wasn’t for the clubs in the network that came in to help us, there would be a lot of elderly people and young people that wouldn’t have their place to go and socialise.”
