I know everyone at The Saints is excited about meeting our newest major sponsor. Simon and Tanya from Reddawn, Complete Security Solutions, have a long history with The Saints. In 2021 they became Major Sponsors of the club. Can you tell us a little bit about yourself, your family and your business?
We live at Little Bay, a blended family with 4 kids 18-5 yrs old, 2 dogs and one cat. Reddawn, complete security solutions, is a family owned Security Company based in Matraville. We previously specialised in festivals & events. Now due to COVID we have moved more and excelled into the government sector.
What prompted you to come on board as major sponsors of the Saints this season?
My oldest daughter Edie started at Saints U9s (over 9 years ago) with Pep and then Michael and now Ace is playing for the last couple of years. The club is exceptional not just to Edie & Ace but all the kids. This is something I have admired from a distance. This year Tanya and I decided its time to give back to the club
