SURREY POLICE LIONS ICE HOCKEY TEAM SEEK CORPORATE SPONSORS
LONDON MARATHON 2012
Ten members of the Surrey Police Ice Hockey Team are bravely taking on the 26.2 miles of the London Marathon 2012, dressed in full ice hockey kit (except the skates of course!!). This is an enormous challenge, not just with the extra weight of the kit, but also we have set a target of raising Â£20,000 for Crimestoppers.
The London Marathon is of course a hugely popular event, televised to millions of people worldwide, with 500,000 spectators in person, and 35,000 runners. Owing to the unique nature of the challenge we will be promoting the event in the build up to the marathon utilising local and national media. The ice hockey runners will be very visually impressive and should generate much interest.
The team will be wearing specially designed ice hockey jerseys for the event which affords the opportunity to include your companyâ€™s logo in a prominent position on the jersey.
Furthermore, as part of the fundraising, the Surrey Police Ice Hockey Team will be playing various exhibition matches and company logos can also be included in game programmes which will be handed out to spectators free of charge.
We are now actively seeking supporter for this endeavour, who through sponsorship, can partner with the team to help us reach the Â£20,000 target.
The Surrey Police Ice Hockey Team was created in 2010, not only to become a competitive recreational ice hockey team, but with a view to promoting sport and a healthier lifestyle amongst staff and the wider public. Through the club we aim to contribute towards positive police-community relationships, particularly amongst children and young people, and to offer sport and a healthy lifestyle as alternatives to alcohol, drugs, and crime.
Crimestoppers are an independent charity helping to find criminals and solve crimes. They play an invaluable role by facilitating communication between the public and police, and thereby help to create safer neighbourhoods.
They run the 0800 555 111 phone number and untraceable online secure form found at www.crimestoppers-uk.org that individuals can use without fear to pass on information anonymously about crime in their community.Â Â Surrey Crimestoppers works in partnership with Surrey Police providing them with valuable anonymous information that helps to make Surrey even safer.
For further information on Crimestoppers please ring 01483 472739.
Donations can be made easily by clicking this link and will be gratefully received.
We would be pleased to hear from you in order to discuss the potential for sponsorship further.
