Rugby Union

Chemcare Group is a strong supporter of Rugby Union throughout Papua New Guinea. Through S.C.R.U.M (Supporters Club of Rugby Union in Morobe), Chemcare Group has contributed to the growth of School Boys and Under 16's Rugby Union through financial contributions, provision of transport to and from games, player training, player workshops, and the donation of equipment.

Chemcare Defence Rugby Union Club

Defence Rugby Union Club was established in the early 1990's, when the Engineering Battalion moved over to Lae, and ATS (Air Transport Squadron) formerly based in Lae moved to Port Moresby. During the transition period members of the Lae area, ATS and engineers formed the Club to participate in the local Morobe Rugby Football Union competition. From those humble beginnings, the club has successfully taken part in notable grand finals and premierships. However, winning is not what’s most important to this team; the core of the Club is uniting individuals to be team players, demonstrating respect, integrity, discipline, loyalty and passion for the game and its players. These values made Chemcare Group a perfect fit to come on board as the Club’s main supporter and sponsor almost seven years ago. The Club became known as Chemcare Defence Rugby Union with Chemcare Group branches donating t.shirts, balls and first aid kits throughout the season.

Squash

Andersons Foodland is a proud supporter of squash in Lae, sponsoring competitions throughout the year and as the naming sponsor of the Lae Squash Racquets Association (LSRA) annual weekend tournament the Andersons Foodland Lae Open. The competition attracts the best players from all corners of PNG with winners taking home cash prizes donated by Andersons Foodland as the official naming sponsor. 

Game Fishing

Chemcare Group has always been a strong supporter of Game Fishing throughout Papua New Guinea, in particular the Lae Game Fishing Club (LGFC).  Through its subsidiaries Chemcare Pharmacies and Andersons Foodland, Chemcare Group has been supporting the LGFC for over 15 years, in 2014 through Platinum sponsorship of the 39th National Game Fishing Titles held in Lae.

Andersons Foodland and Chemcare Pharmacies sponsor an annual weekend competition, supplying a variety of prizes, gift vouchers and food hampers.

Andersons Foodland is also the sponsor of the Billfish Prize money jackpot of K10, 000 awarded to any angler, who catches a marlin over 250kg (500Lbs) or worth 2000 points in Lae, Kokopo or Madang waters.
