Sponsors' shopping list:

27th February 2006

Donations are already coming in. Thanks to all those who have pledged support so far! Fundraising is even more important than last year, as we will not have the 8000 Heritage Lottery VE Celebrations money to fall back on.

Some potential sponsors have asked for a list of specific items which need paying for. Of course, any donation, big or small is welcome. Every penny will be put to good use.

But don't forget, if you are a business which is a first time sponsor of the arts, we can apply to have your donation doubled by Arts and Business. This particular scheme is for donations/pledges of 250 and upwards received before April 2nd. We will acknowledge your sponsorship of specific cultural elements of the event, such as acts, children's shows, bands, stages, choir etc.
