Would your Business be interested in supporting the Winter Droving event this year in Penrith.
This year The Winter Droving will take place on Sat 28th October 2017
2016 was the biggest yet attracting over 20,000 people and gaining national press coverage worth 45K including The Telegraph, The Guardian and The Daily Mail http://www.dailymail.co.uk/video/news/video-1357693/Thousands-parade-Penrith-Winter-Droving-Festival.html
The event can’t happen without your support. We need to raise in the region of £10,000 in addition to the generous support we receive from Arts Council England, Penrith Town Council, Eden District Council, Penrith BID and Penrith Lottery to ensure the event can happen. Last year we received support from over 15 local businesses, large and small, from Ast Signs to Beacon Fire Protection.
Why is the Winter Droving important to Penrith? There is the increased footfall and spend on the day, but it is more than that, it is putting Penrith on the map nationally. Did you see the piece in The Times? Why Penrith is a hot place to live… https://www.thetimes.co.uk/article/going-places-penrith-2rkf7r87h Winter Droving is mentioned as a town highlight. It makes a town appealing to visit and to come and live in (helping with your recruitment). It installs community pride, brings the community together, raises money for other local charities and promotes local produce and product.
I hope that you will consider supporting The Winter Droving this year and that you share in the benefits that the event brings. I attach a sponsor pack which gives you an overview of the opportunities available. Please contact Adrian.firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com or call 01768899444 to discuss further.
I look forward to hearing from you (even if it’s a “not this year thanks” as then we won’t continue to pester you!)
Heather & all the Eden Arts Team
