Business Sponsorship Opportunities
You will be aware that the new Walsall Hospice is now under construction in Goscote, with completion expected in autumn 2010. In a ground-breaking initiative, the £5.5 million building has been financed by the NHS and will be leased back to the Hospice. However, before the first patients arrive in February 2011, we need to raise £1.5 million in order to finance the fit-out of their new building and the provision of the specialist facilities and equipment required to provide the highest standard of palliative care for the terminally ill.
Therefore, if you are a business in Walsall you may want to consider sponsoring this fantastic event and help raise vital funds for this worthy cause.
You may consider taking up one of the following options available on the night:
• Sponsorship of one of the performers / items listed on the form.
• Placing a black & white quarter-page advertisement in the concert programme at a cost of £120, inclusive of two tickets. (art work to be provided)
• Erecting your company’s 1.0m wide ‘pop-up’ stand in the Town Hall foyer / entrance for the duration of the concert at a cost of £100, inclusive of four tickets.
