Sharks and Capital Bluestone ‘Have Heart’

The Sharks can announce Capital Bluestone as the Platinum Partner of Sharks Have Heart.

The community arm of the Cronulla club, Sharks Have Heart will continue to engage with the local community and now with the support of Capital Bluestone, look to grow programs and initiatives that can have lasting, real and positive impacts for many years to come.

Sharks CEO, Barry Russell was proud to welcome Capital Bluestone as the inaugural Sharks Have Heart Platinum Partner. 

“Through this partnership with Capital Bluestone we will continue to make a significant contribution and a real difference to our community and be recognised as a world class community, game development and social impact organisation,” Russell said. 

“Capital Bluestone’s support as Platinum Partner will allow us to grow and improve our community footprint and contribute important social capital to the Sutherland Shire.” 

Now in becoming the major partner of Sharks Have Heart, Capital Bluestone will assist the club in their efforts to build on what is already in place, while delivering new community programs into the future.

In unveiling the new partnership, Ben Fairfax, Capital Bluestone Managing Director, detailed a close involvement with the Sharks that began back when the club’s property development project was in the formative stages.

 “We’re delighted to be a platinum partner of Sharks Have Heart and we look forward to the Sharks ensuring a great legacy of inclusiveness and community give-back through this great program of initiatives, well after the Woolooware Bay development is complete,” said Mr Fairfax.

“It’s been a great honour to be so closely involved with the Sharks since 2011 through our development partnership that will ultimately deliver some fantastic new infrastructure for the local community.

 “Our Sharks Have Heart partnership provides us with another opportunity to be a part of the local community through many different initiatives that align with our common values,” Fairfax added.

As developers, Capital Bluestone believes it is incumbent on them to create communities that are sound from the inside out, with their business about reinvigorating communities where possible and in providing the physical infrastructure that helps brings programs, such as Sharks Have Heart, to life. 

Capital Bluestone looks for authentic and meaningful ways to invest significantly in the communities of which they’re a part, working hard to make sure the new neighbourhoods they created have a positive foundation for becoming sustainable, inclusive, supportive and desirable places to live.

Capital Bluestone is proud of its long association with organisations like Sutherland Shire Family Services, Touched by Olivia Foundation, Kookaburra Kids, and Life Live Get Active, all offering programs focused on inclusiveness while promoting physical and emotional health and wellbeing.

Working together, Sharks Have Heart and Capital Bluestone can take their community involvement to a new level, with the Sharks having a clear vision as to what they are hoping to achieve.

“Sharks Have Heart has a vision to inspire, grow, educate and engage our community, focusing on four main pillars of Inclusivity, Diversity, Social Impact and Have Heart,” Russell said.

Capital Bluestone, the Sharks development partner, is currently in the process of delivering a new town centre at Woolooware Bay on land adjacent to the Sharks Leagues Club and Stadium.

Woolooware Bay when complete will comprise of over 640 apartments, a new Club environment, a vibrant 18,000m2 shopping, dining and entertainment precinct and a restored public foreshore.
