CITY COLLEGE NORWICH - EXTREME SPORTS THERAPY UNIT
The Extreme Sports Therapy Unit provides students with a way of developing their practical sports massage skills in a real working environment and it doesn't get any more real than an all-night event in bitter cold, pouring rain. As an experiential learning opportunity it is second to none, and the students benefit from being able to work as part of a team whilst improving their skill and knowledge base, thus developing their confidence and communication skills. The unit usually contains a mix of students, some of whom are qualified and working to gain further experience, whilst still at the College studying the Foundation Degree in Sport Health & Exercise, though the majority are students studying the L3 Diploma in the Prevention and Management of Sports Injuries. "We are geared up to service medium to large events and like to focus on Extreme Sports - hence our involvement with Chain Reaction Cycles and Thetford Mountain Bike Racing (Thetford MTB). We can operate up to twelve treatment tables at one time; and if required we can operate in multiple locations at the same event. The Unit is completely self-sufficient; we have a field kitchen and camping equipment and the only thing only thing we need is access to water and toilets (though a hot shower is always appreciated). We have developed considerably over the last five years and we are still looking to expand further. Whilst we have had some support from the College we are essentially self-funding - therefore any money made at events through donations is invested back into the business. With this in mind we are actively seeking sponsorship to help fund travel expenses, purchase new equipment and further improve the student learning experience. In return for sponsorship we can offer exposure at events in the UK and Europe and on our website. Rest assured that your business will be well represented as we are a very professional outfit that is serious about what we do. As we have huge exposure at events there are numerous branding opportunities on marquees, banners, flags, student shirts and our 7.5 tonne truck".

EPILEPSY FOOTPRINT
Epilepsy Footprint is a non-profit organisation which aims to educate people everywhere about epilepsy. All its surplus funds are used in developing countries to improve people's access to support services and medical treatments for epilepsy. Too many people in these countries are dying from treatable seizures due to poverty, lack of access to medical services for epilepsy and general attitudes towards the condition. Ignorance towards epilepsy also means many people in the developing world are too scared to be diagnosed with the condition because it could potentially result in them losing their work, family or education. So by going out and speaking to people about epilepsy, Epilepsy Footprint's aim is to help people's understanding and attitudes towards the condition and remove the stigma which is holding so many people back from leading a normal life with epilepsy. The funding received from these presentations will be used in developing countries to     improve medical facilities and supplies     improve accessibility to medical and support services     provide education and skills training to people with epilepsy     improve the general understanding of epilepsy through school presentations. Epilepsy Footprint's Mission: the vision of Epilepsy Footprint is to keep improving people's understanding and handling of epilepsy in everyday life both in the UK and abroad. In many developing countries there is a negative attitude associating epilepsy with the devil and disease resulting in many people being disowned by their families, schools and employers. So going out and talking to people about the various aspects of epilepsy has been shown to bring people together rather than allowing them to remain isolated - and to improve people's confidence everywhere in handling seizures when witnessed. All this is achieved by providing training and information to those who wish to understand and learn more about epilepsy. This objective is achieved by giving various presentations regarding epilepsy in everyday life via    schools    businesses    community groups    hospitals    families    media    national and international conferences.

HYPOPARATHYROIDISM (HPTH) UK
HPTH UK is the only UK charity providing advice, information and support to people affected by Hypoparathyroidism, a rare and life threatening endocrine condition. "Hypoparathyroidism (HPTH) can affect all ages. There are several forms - people may be born with it or it may be acquired later in life but, most commonly, it is caused by surgery to the neck. This latter group go into hospital with one condition and come out with another! All forms of HPTH cause a lack of parathyroid hormone which leads to low calcium levels in the blood. Calcium is vital to life and the levels can often be very unstable, causing hypos. Unlike diabetics, and despite very similar difficulties, HPTH patients have neither replacement hormone therapy nor home testers available to help them manage their levels. The condition is not well known and is poorly understood by doctors. However, thanks to contributions from people like you, and the work we have been doing to raise awareness, understanding of HPTH is steadily improving and the new parathyroid hormone trial offers real hope for the future, though we have a long way to go yet. HPTH UK has worked entirely voluntarily since 2005 to raise awareness about this condition among the medical profession and to provide support and information to patients through our website, online forums, telephone helpline and our expert team of consultant endocrinologists around the UK. We keep going through donations and fundraising, so any support you can offer will be hugely appreciated - thank you!" Contact: Liz Glenister.

OSTEOGENIC CENTRES UK
Osteogenic Centres UK is a small, self funded organisation which is trying to change the lives of people who suffer from Osteopoenia and Osteoporosis. Through using a bioDensity machine, sufferers of Osteopoenia and Osteoporosis can increase their bone mass making day-to-day living easier and more comfortable. bioDensity makes possible a safe, self-induced, neuro-musculoskeletal stimulus that provides loading up to multiples of body weight. Such loads are normally associated with impact loading - activities that are most useful for increasing or maintaining bone health. The stimulus also creates myofibril muscular growth for a higher power-to-weight ratio in muscular tissue, and a faster metabolism. From high-performance athletes to compromised, elderly individuals, all can greatly benefit from stronger bone tissue and increased muscular strength. The organisation would be delighted to discuss how sponsors might contribute to its further development. Contact: Gary Rhodes. Address: Osteogenic Centres, Bridgewater Place, Leeds LS11 5BZ.

PAUL'S CANCER SUPPORT CENTRE
Paul's Cancer Support Centre has pioneered the use of complementary therapies since 1983 to support people affected by cancer. It aligns its approach closely with the Cancer Reform Strategy 2007 which recognised the need to provide psychological support to people with cancer and with the National Cancer Survivorship Initiative which has as its overarching goal "to ensure that the physical, psychological, social, spiritual, financial and information needs of cancer survivors are met". The Centre offers a range of services from one to one counselling and support groups to the innovative Healing Journey programme which brings together some of the most effective tools and strategies for helping people deal with the experience of cancer and improve their quality of life. Cancer can be a frightening and overwhelming experience. It can often lead to feelings of powerlessness - a belief that there is little one can do to feel more in control of one's life. The Healing Journey, which is based on a programme created by Professor Alastair Cunningham in Canada, helps people feel more in control and helps them lead happier, more meaningful and more fulfilled lives by learning coping and life skills. It is being developed as a nationwide programme for the UK. Full background information can be found at www.healingjourney.org.uk. "If you would like to provide corporate support to the Centre, please get in touch for more information". Contact: Debbie Lyne. Address: Woburn House, 155 Falcon Road, London SW11 2PD.

SKYSCHOOL AND ADVENTURE EXPEDITIONS
Following the successful use of paramotors on a major scientific expedition by the Scientific Exploration Society in the Bolivian Amazonas during 2007, it is proposed to develop the concept of using paramotors and all terrain vehicles, working together on a series of scientific projects. A small team of experts have come together to plan the ventures and they consist of the following individuals: John Blashford Snell, Scientific Exploration Society; Alex Ledger, SkySchool Flight Centre; Alan Morton, Proactive TV. The first expedition is to Botswana and the aim is to research areas of scientific interest as well as support the local community. Proactive TV have agreed to film the expeditions with the aim of placing them on either Channel 4 or the Discovery Channel. The charity Just a Drop has also agreed to support the expedition. These expeditions are clearly advantageous for either a single main sponsor or a variety of different sponsors. "We therefore propose that interested parties should contact us to discuss the options available". Contact: Alex Ledger. Address: Rams Hill Farm, Manston, Sturminster Newton, Dorset DT10 1HD.

OSM/003 ODYSSEY PROJECT LTD
Odyssey is an organisation which enhances the quality of life for people with cancer through programmes of adventure, based mainly in the outdoors. Using the stimulation of uncertainty and surprise, Odyssey takes participants on a five day journey aimed at combating the psychological and emotional devastation caused by their illness. By supporting people to overcome appropriate challenges (some physical, others creative or artistic), Odyssey helps people rebuild their confidence and regain their zest for life. Odyssey was founded in 1994 by consultant oncologist Dr. Howard Smedley, who saw a gap in the provision of support at the point where people are leaving treatment. Since then Odyssey has consistently tried to run a minimum of three courses a year in Kent and, more recently, to run courses in Wales, the West Midlands and Scotland. With skills and knowledge acquired over seventeen years, Odyssey believes its body of experience to be unrivalled. The increasing success of cancer treatments has meant that many people are surviving cancer and returning to normal life, often after a prolonged interlude of treatment. Others are terminally ill, but not physically incapacitated; and a third group comprises those who have to live through a long period of uncertainty before knowing the outcome. A fundamental need for all three groups is to maximise the quality of their lives. Many forms of support are offered through treatment centres, but typically they are introspective in approach. Odyssey is about active engagement and frequently provides the stimulus and confidence that people need to re-engage with life. For example, it's not uncommon, following an Odyssey course, for people to return to work after a long period away or to take up a new pastime. For others it helps them find positivity, enjoyment and peace during the closing part of their lives. Contact: Hugo Iffla. Address: Suilven, Marconi Lane, Tywyn LL36 9HN. Tel.: 01654 710225. E-mail:
