Bulls Fan Shows Commitment “To the Max!”

Bradford Bulls can probably claim to have the fan that’s travelled the furthest to attend this weekend’s Summer Bash in Blackpool. Maxwell Green, a Bulls fan for over 20 years has come all the way from Mount Pleasant in the Falkland Islands, over  8000 miles away in the South Atlantic. Max said “Given where I live, getting to games is tough, but I go to as many as I can. I thought the Summer Bash was a good event to come up for. I’ll be cheering on the Bulls versus Halifax, and I can’t wait.”

Max’s father Paul will also be there and he explained that distance is no barrier to his commitment to the Bulls cause. Paul said “Max is a really committed supporter. He’s also, like me, a member of BullBuilder, the Bulls official supporter’s trust, who provide funding for the Bulls Academy Team for those extras over and above what the club provide. He’s sold Golden Gamble tickets before home games too and is a really passionate fan.” Max said “I just like to do my bit for the club I love. I’d urge others to get involved with BullBuilder if they can as it’s a great way to support the club.    We’ve had some tough times in recent years but now we’re on the up again.” BullBuilder are hosting a Dinnertime in the Park event at 7pm on Wednesday June 3rd which will feature an auction and raffle accompanied by food and drinks at the Pavilion Café in Centenary Square.

BullBuilder Supports Foundation Big 10 Poker Night

The Bradford Bulls Foundation will be hosting the inaugural Bradford Bulls Poker evening on Monday 11 May, and BullBuilder are among the supporters of the event. The event forms part of ‘Robbie’s Big 10’, in association with the Foundation and The Forget Me Not Children’s Hospice, with proceeds being split between the two charities. The evening will be held at Grosvenor Casinos in the Bradford city centre Leisure Exchange, starting at 7:00PM. Not only will the entire Bulls first team squad be present, but BullBuilder will be there too. We have secured a table of five people, and BullBuilder members are invited to get in touch to claim one of five FREE places for BullBuilder members at our table. BullBuilder Deputy Chairman Mike Farren said, “BullBuilder and the Foundation are working together more closely than ever, and we wanted to show our support for Robbie’s Big 10 initiative. Given that our remit is to raise funds to support young players at the club, we did not want to spend BullBuilder members’ money on this, so several committee members have joined together to book a table. However, we do want our members to join us on the evening. If you fancy trying your luck and practising your poker face, drop an Email to info@bullbuilder.co.uk. Tickets are available strictly on a first-come, first-served basis.” Robbie Hunter-Paul said, “In the name of charity, we would love to see the Bradford Bulls family secure tickets and take on their favourite players away from the field! As a trustee of the Bradford Bulls Foundation, I am proud to be working with so many fantastic partners and the Forget Me Not Children’s Hospice, who do fantastic work to support children and their families when they need it most.” If you are not already a member of BullBuilder and would like to join in order to take advantage of benefits such as this, and to help support junior rugby at the club, you can do so by visiting our website at http://www.bullbuilder.co.uk/join/.

We want to keep in touch with you!

BullBuilder has just set the date for the 2015 AGM. It will be held at 7:00PM on Wednesday 28 January, at Cue Gardens, Stadium Mills, Stadium Road, Bradford, BD6 1BJ. We will be sending out notice of the AGM over the next few days, but we want to make sure that we reach all our members. If you are a BullBuilder member and you might have changed your Email, postal address or other contact details since you last contacted us, could you please update us? You can do so by Emailing us at info@bullbuilder.co.uk or writing to us at Bradford Rugby League Supporters Society Ltd, Suite 2 Buttershaw Works, Buttershaw Lane, Bradford, BD6 2DD. The AGM will give members the chance to shape the future for BullBuilder in 2015 and beyond. There will also be the chance to stand for the board, as we are aware that there will be some vacancies. To stand for the board - and to attend and vote at the AGM - you will need to be a current member. To join or re-join, please go to http://www.bullbuilder.co.uk/join/, or write to us at the above address. About the venue, BullBuilder chairman, Mike Farren said, "We would have liked to hold the AGM in the Coral Stand, but the club made us aware that there is a significant cost to opening the stand, particularly in Winter. Understandably, they do not want to lose money on what should be a money-making facility. This left us with a choice, either to use a significant amount of the money donated by our members and supporters to underwrite the meeting, or to take it elsewhere. As the money was donated with the express intention of supporting junior rugby at the club, we want to ensure that it is used as effectively as possible for that purpose. Cue Gardens is convenient for Odsal, and is known to fans. We're confident that the AGM will be handsomely accommodated there." Speaking of supporting junior rugby at the club, BullBuilder will be funding a team-building evening for the under-19 squad, including leisure activities and a meal, next week. Look out for details of the event!

BullBuilder get into the Christmas spirit at the Bulls’ carol service

BullBuilder, the Bradford Bulls' Supporters' Trust, will have a stall at the Provident Stadium at 7:00PM this Wednesday, 10 December, in support of the Bulls' annual carol service. "The event drew over 1,000 people last year," said BullBuilder chairman Mike Farren. "It's great to see the Bulls' community come together like this in the middle of the 'off' season." The stall will give people the chance to sign up as BullBuilder for 2015, and get behind junior rugby at the club at the time when it's needed most. Those who have already renewed their membership for next season will also be able to pick up their membership cards, or just come to see us and discuss plans for 2015. "We will shortly be announcing plans for the 2015 AGM, as we look to take our support for junior rugby at the club to a new level," said Farren. "To do this, we need the support of as many of the fans as possible!"
