Here are some of the ways you can help:
1. You could put on a small pirate event for us such as a pirate party in the local pub or a pirate family picnic in a park local to you!
I can send you digital copies of a poster, modeled on our festival poster - with your own event details added in - or you can design your own if you'd prefer!
Maybe you could shake a bucket for us at your event, or charge a small cover price or even hold a raffle - we can donate some festival tickets as prizes to start you off.
As an added incentive to do some BOB Fundraising to help us put the event on this year, we have come up with some rewards for you...
£60 = 1 T-shirts
£110 = 2 T-shirts
£160 = 3 T-shirts etc
These T-shirts are specially made and are of an exclusive design only available for our fundraisers - nobody will be able to buy them separately so they are a really special souvenir!
Please do get in touch with Eilidh Prentice if you're thinking of putting a fundraising event on so that we can help publicise it, come along if we are near enough, encourage other people to support you and so that we can keep track of any events being planned.
2. Corporate Sponsorship
Do you own, work for or know of a company that would like to sponsor our festival?
If so, please let us know using one of the contact methods listed below:
FACEBOOK (Eilidh Prentice)
(My name is pronounced 'Ellie', for anyone wondering!)
Your company could sponsor an amount, no matter how small, towards the running of the festival?
Or maybe you could sponsor a particular piece of equipment, such as sound and lighting, toilets (individual or all of them - we will name them after you, we promise!), our skip, one of our performers, bands or re-enactment groups, our health and safety, our first aid, our stewards?
In return for sponsorship we can look at the following ways of compensating you and assisting your business:
Ads in our program.
Mentioning you on our website and in our blog.
Putting your banner up at our event.
Coming to your place of work for a photoshoot
Coming to your business to participate as actors in filming an advert for you.
Coming to you for the afternoon/ day to promote your business as pirates!
Naming a part of the festival after you or your company (with signs and banners etc), such as our bar or main arena, or any of our facilities.
I'm open to offers so please do get in touch and let's see what we can do for each other!
