Team Spelthorne are looking for sponsorship for the 2019 Specsavers Surrey Youth Games. The annual event is the largest youth sport festival in Surrey with around 2000 young people taking part. In the run up to the event, Spelthorne Borough Council offer young people the chance to take part in 7 weeks of coaching in a number of different sports. These sessions offer the young people the opportunity to try new sports or improve their existing skills. From these sessions, teams are chosen to represent the borough at the games on Saturday 15 and Sunday 16 June 2019 at Surrey Sports Park in Guildford.
Team Spelthorne had a hugely successful games in 2019, celebrated winning several medals and finished an impressive third place in the medal table, for the third consecutive year. Sponsorship helped to enable over 350 training places in Spelthorne to be filled, benefitting hundreds of young people, aged 7-16, from participating in sport.
Spelthorne Borough Council will continue to subsidise the coaching sessions for Team Spelthorne in the lead up to the event and we are keen to continue to offer the sessions at no cost to the participants. Therefore, we are looking for sponsors to provide £750 each to help cover the cost of the sessions. In return for this sponsorship, we can offer to print your logo on over 12,000 leaflets which go out to every school child in years 3-10 in Spelthorne. Additionally, we can put your logo on the Surrey Youth Games article in the Borough Bulletin which goes out to every house in Spelthorne and put a link to your website on the Spelthorne Borough Council website. Furthermore, we can print your logo onto the back of the Team Spelthorne T-Shirts which are worn by both the young people and coaches at the weekend event and often continue to be worn proudly after the games. You will also be invited to attend the competition weekend.
The Specsavers Surrey Youth Games is a fantastic opportunity for young people to be involved in sport in a fun and with your help, free, environment.
If you feel that you are able to help support Team Spelthorne in 2019 then I look forward to hearing from you. In order for us to uphold our offer of including your logo on our marketing material, I would be grateful if you can let me know Friday 15 February 2019. If you would like any further information about the Specsavers Surrey Youth Games or would like to discuss this opportunity then please don’t hesitate to contact me.
