Chasing Dreams - Backing Young Athlete Josh Shanahan

Sponsorships - Young Athletes

Meet Josh Shanahan, a remarkable 17-year-old athlete who's making waves in the world of running, triathlon, and duathlon. Highgrove Bathrooms - Noosa are honoured to be sponsoring such an exceptional talent, whose unwavering dedication to his sport is truly inspiring.

While we're honoured to be supporting Josh on his journey to becoming an elite athlete, we recognise that being a non-team athlete can be challenging. Without the backing of a team or organisation, funding can be hard to come by.  That's why we're committed to providing Josh with the support he needs to continue chasing his dreams. It's been an incredible year for Josh, who's been making a name for himself in the world of sports.

Josh has competed in five national events over the past 12 months, including four interstate events, and he's been selected to represent Australia at two major international events: the National Triathlon Championships in Devonport in March, and the World Duathlon Championships in Spain in April 2023.

 At Highgrove Bathrooms, we understand the importance of investing in the future of sports, and that's why we're proud to sponsor young athletes like Josh. We believe that by supporting emerging talent, together we can help to create a brighter future for the sporting community. That's why we're committed to providing Josh with the tools and resources he needs to succeed, and we're excited to be a part of his journey as he continues to chase his dreams and make a name for himself in the world of sports.

Join us, in wishing Josh luck as he moves through the rankings. Check out and track his progress at:  2023 World Triathlon Duathlon Championships or on Strava

Supporting The Bandits

Sponsorships - Sporting Clubs

Highgrove Bathrooms Wodonga is thrilled to be supporting their local NBL1 Basketball Team, The Southern Vale Homes Bandits for the 2023 season!

This sponsorship provides an exciting opportunity for us to support the club, the NBL 1 Women’s and Men’s teams as well as The Albury Wodonga Bandits talented youth and junior players.

Highgrove Bathrooms Wodonga store owner, Cale Bryan, is a big fan of the club and regularly makes it to games. So naturally he is extremely proud to be associated with The Bandits. “These grass-roots programs provide a pathway for young players in the region to play at a higher level, and we are excited to see what the future holds for these talented players.” Said Mr. Bryan.

As well as being an avid Spector, Cale has also donated numerous basketballs to the School Holiday Basketball Program and continues to support the Bandits outside of his sponsorship in numerous other ways. His dedication to local sports and community initiatives is truly commendable.

We encourage everyone in the community to come out and support the Bandits this season. Whether you're a basketball fan or just looking for a fun family night out, the games are sure to be exciting and entertaining.

There was plenty of action on Saturday the 25th of March, as Round 3 got underway, with a terrific contest in both the women's and men’s games. Highgrove Bathrooms were the game night sponsor, giving away basketballs, ducks, hats, stubby coolers and smiles to spectators and players alike.

The Women’s team brought home another strong Win, defeating the Hills Hornets 101-53 to take their third victory in a row, leaving them second on the ladder. 

The men’s Bandits NBL1 team pulled out a hard earned 80-70 win over the Hills Hornets at Lauren Jackson Sports Centre. Not much separating the two teams but a 29-point to 21 second quarter ultimately putting the Bandits on top at half-time and they were able to convert that into the 10-point win. Placing them fifth on the ladder. We extend our heartfelt wishes to the Southern Vale Homes Bandits for a successful season ahead and hope their winning streak continues. Go the Bandits!

The opportunity for us (Highgrove Bathrooms) to become a Joint Major Sponsor of the club, means we can continue to support the youth of today and this great game.”
