Supporting Farnham Rugby Club by sponsoring Sportsman’s Lunch 2012 – A reminder.

With just over a month to go until the team at Callmaster Mobile dine with Willie John McBride and other Farnham royalty we thought we should remind you all why we are supporting the club and why you could too.

Cast your mind back to early morning, Sunday 23rd November 2003.

There are 82,957 people crammed into the Telstra Stadium in Syndey, Australia.

There are millions more, myself included, staring at TV screens in pubs, bars and homes around the world.

The 2003 Rugby World Cup final between England and Australia is heading to extra-time with only 26 seconds left on the clock.

As a stunned audience hold their breath, the oval ball leaves the right boot of England’s Jonny Wilkinson and heads straight between the gleaming white posts.

In the most dramatic of circumstances, the Rugby World Cup is won.

And a nation rejoices.

Across all sports we dream of these moments, of the ultimate victory, to be crowned the best in the world. However these moments are not possible without hard work, determination and excellent coaching from day one.

So if you enjoyed that moment in 2003 like I did then you also owe a small debt of gratitude to Farnham Rugby Club who helped nurture and coach the prodigious talents of Jonny Wilkinson on the fields at Wrecclesham.

At Callmaster Mobile we are trying to pay them back for what they have given us.

Many of you local to Farnham will probably know that the construction of their new facilities on Monkton Lane is already underway and this has only been possible due to the generosity and support of players, parents, friends, sponsors, and many others. For our part we have launched a scheme for anyone affiliated to the rugby club where, if you connect a mobile phone with Vodafone, through Callmaster Mobile, we will pay 5% of your monthly bill into the coffers of the club, every year for as long as you stay connected through us.

If you would like to support this great club in this way, after all it is a bill you are probably already paying so why not get some of that money redirected, then please get in touch with us and mention Farnham Rugby Club.

We are also sponsoring the annual Sportsman’s Lunch event on Friday 13th April 2012, we would love to hear from anyone who is also attending.

The speaker is Willie John McBride, who famously captained the most successful British & Irish Lions side ever on the tour of South Africa in 1974. At over 6ft 3inches tall and 220lb in his prime I hope that he is looking forward to the Callmaster Mobile arm wrestling challenge on the day 🙂

Callmaster Mobile enters the blogging world!!

It has taken some time but with a new year comes new objectives and we have been talking for some time about how to share our knowledge of the mobile world and what better way than with our own blog.

Our company has changed so much in the last 6 months, we have relocated, we have recruited and we have become “more than just mobiles”.

Over the next few posts we will share with you everything that is new, our partnerships with Disability Challengers, Farnham Rugby Club and Phyllis Tuckwell Hospice, all the latest technologies available at your fingertips on a pay per user per month basis and the benefits that these advances can bring to your working life.

We would like to hear from anyone who would like to “guest blog” for us and share their knowledge and experiences of “mobile” so do get in touch if you are interested.

We promise to keep you up to date on the latest phones and tablets that we rate and recommend, we will tell you about Microsoft Office 365 and all the amazing components that enhance the way we work (hey, it might be good for you as well!) and we hope to enlighten you about near field communications (NFC), Fastdox and Digital Pens, Hosted Telephony, converged fixed line and mobile solutions and unified communications.

So, to kick us off, who uses mobile applications for work or maybe Angry Birds for fun? Who doesn’t because their handset of choice is a BlackBerry and finds BlackBerry App World limited? Well the good news, coming soon to a town near you, android developed apps are going to be available on BlackBerry handsets. The question is, is it too little, too late?

We shall see….
