BANKSIDE FROST FAIR
Bankside Frost Fair is London's largest, free winter event, to take place along the River Thames outside Tate Modern and Shakespeare's Globe Theatre on 14th-16th December. Having previously won a Visit London award the Frost Fair is now in its fifth year and attracts over 140,000 visitors.

The Frost Fair turns the area into a winter wonderland where you can find London's biggest winter market, husky dog sledding, ice sculptures, street theatre, music, workshops and a bar serving mulled wine. The events starts with a spectacular lantern parade and on the Saturday there is a boat procession. Media coverage has included BBC London, London Tonight, Magic Radio, Smooth FM, The Guardian, The Times, The Observer, Daily Mirror, Time Out, Metro, Evening Standard, London Lite, Woman's Own, Junior, First and Prima. Other marketing includes advertising, promotional material and a website. Various levels of sponsorship and benefits are available with varying exposure throughout the event.

ISLE OF WIGHT WALKING FESTIVAL
A fantastic opportunity has just arisen for a partner/sponsor to be involved with the Isle of Wight Walking Festival, which is the largest in the UK. The festival's Title sponsor for five years has now gone through business transformation, and as their strategy has changed they will no longer be supporting events, which includes the Isle of Wight Walking Festival - leaving open this exciting opportunity. The festival has won the BBC Countryfile Magazine Readers Award for the best Walking Festival, and is currently shortlisted for the CIPR - Best Event Award and also the 2009 Tourism ExSELLence Award for the Best Event. This event would be the perfect opportunity for a sponsor/partner as it fits in nicely with the idea of reducing carbon footprints and also with healthy lifestyles, playing a role in helping people lead healthier lives by offering healthier product choices and encouraging consumers to lead active lives. The festival is looking for Title, Gold, Silver and Bronze sponsors and also for product and clothing sponsors or contra deals. 2008 was the tenth anniversary of the founding of the Walking Festival, and in excess of 24,500 walkers took part. Also to add to the celebrations, a Celebratory Walking Weekend was organised - four days in October. This was so successful that the organisers decided to make it a permanent fixture in the events calendar. It attracted over 2,000 walkers to the festival, which is great for the Island's tourism as it extends the holiday season. The festival has been featured on BBC Countryfile and on numerous other TV programmes, with many radio interviews both locally and all over the country. "We have become quite infamous for our Speed Dating Walks, and to date have had three weddings, and possibly a fourth one on the horizon! We have also introduced into the programme an evening at the theatre which has proved really popular, and to date we have had Ben Fogle, Alan Hinkes and Janet Street-Porter, and next year we have Brian Blessed (which will be a complete sell out). We have increased the programme of walks from 39 to over three hundred, and it has developed into a Walking Festival which offers walks for all ages and abilities, and fits well into the healthy initiative. We look forward to hearing from you soon". Contact: Elaine Cesar, Events Officer. Address: Isle of Wight Council, 5th Floor, County Hall, Newport, Isle of Wight PO30 1UD. Tel.: 07970 009909.

OMA/0001 YORKSHIRE PHOENIX MAJORETTES
This majorette troupe has been active for only 18 months now and have won the Lord Mayor's Parade in Blackpool this year, ensuring that they will be invited to take part in other high profile competitions. But they are badly in need of a main sponsor. The main sponsor will be named on the placard on the vehicle that carries their sound system and will also feature on the back of the tracksuits that they are hoping to purchase. They have also negotiated a deal for free advertising on the local community website for the duration of the sponsorship deal. Sponsorship will enable them to attend these high profile competitions and allow them compete with the best in the UK and maybe even Europe. Contact: Graham Macdonald, Fundraiser.

THE MOBILITY ROADSHOW: TELFORD INTERNATIONAL CENTRE
This annual event is a prime opportunity to reach thousands of end-user customers in the mobility and disability markets. With spending power worth around 80 billion per annum, this is a market not to be ignored. Registered charity Mobility Choice organises the national Mobility Roadshow, the UK's premier consumer mobility and independent lifestyle event for people with disabilities, their families and carers. Over three days it attracts around 10,000 visitors from all over the UK, Europe and beyond. Since 1983 the Mobility Roadshow has provided a unique platform for people wishing to test drive adapted and specialist vehicles, either as a disabled driver or to test comfort and safety for a disabled passenger. Non-disabled people would never consider buying a car without test driving first: why should disabled people not have that same opportunity? The Roadshow provides this facility, bringing together leading names in the motoring sector with a range of vehicles adapted with the latest hand controls, plus conversion specialists with wheelchair passenger or drive-from-wheelchair options. In addition it provides a vast showcase of all that's new in the mobility market to enable an independent lifestyle - motoring accessories, wheelchairs and powerchairs, mobility and all-terrain scooters, all-ability cycles, products for the home, fitness and rehabilitation equipment, accessible travel and leisure, clothing and hundreds of gadgets and gizmos. The Mobility Roadshow celebrated its thirtieth anniversary in 2013 with a bumper event at the Telford International Centre. A wide variety of sponsorship opportunities are available, from headline sponsorship to individual areas within the show, such as: visitor registration; test drive control; design zone; station shuttle service; mobility loans; information point, press office; sports arena; climbing wall and other activities; pre-event news bulletins; radio/TV advertising; exhibitors' reception; plus banner sites and infrastructure support at the venue (updated details available on request). As well as the thousands of visitors who attend, there is the potential to reach thousands more through the Mobility Roadshow website and its dedicated Mobility Choice Motoring online portal, comprehensive product and service directory and active social media sites. Full details of potential sponsorship opportunities are available from Jacqui Jones, Executive Director - or please do call to discuss any specific requirements or suggestions.

    OTR/001     FAMILY TRAVEL WEBSITE
Launched in 2001, the Family Travel website (www.family-travel.co.uk) boasts a position as Britain's best-known and most respected resource for parents planning a family holiday. It is run by three travel journalists/guidebook authors - Kate Calvert, Corinne Simcock and Charlotte Hindle - who regularly travel with their own children. The website is now at a stage where it needs additional funds to take it to the next level and they are therefore seeking a sponsor who would benefit from association with the site and from long-term exposure to a key market: active women with both families and significant disposable incomes. Other reasons why partnering the Family Travel website makes commercial sense include  •  family holidays are one of the fastest-growing sectors of the leisure economy. Subscribers/visitors take between two and four holidays a year, so repeat business can be expected. Key strengths of the website include  •  219,000 visitors per year  •   Subscribers/visitors are ABC1 females, responsible for most family budgeting, buying, money and holiday-related decisions  •  No. 1 in the UK Google ranking for family travel  •  100% unbiased and independent travel information as the site does not take advertising and its updaters do not accept free facilities from tour operators  •  Comprehensive travel information catering for children of all ages, from babies to sulky teenagers  •  Owned and run by a strong team of media-friendly women with a good mix of business, writing and broadcasting skills. "We would love to talk to you in more detail about becoming our sponsorship partner". Contact: Kate Calvert, Co-editor. Address: 1 Hargrave Road, London N19 5SH. Tel.: (020) 7272 1286.

OTR/002 WORLD IMAGE TOUR
There are a plethora of photo-sharing sites on the web these days and many of them feature excellent photos of all sorts of places. Unfortunately, a lot of these attractive images come with descriptions like 'Italy' or 'Russia', and nothing more - or even just 'untitled'. Clearly, there is a need for a photo site which does more to inform than these sites generally do, and doesn't cost anything. That's what World Image Tour does - it's an informative and educational site, as well as being one that provides imagery of various places around the world, which can also be viewed without the information if desired. The main galleries are presented in Flash format at the moment. This is for the convenience of the zoom and pan functions, but also as a protective measure for those images which are not available for re-use (although these are few). The main galleries feature photos from the past twenty years. Projected additional features include Archives galleries (photos more than twenty years old and ones which have been replaced with more recent images of the same scene) and Historical galleries (photos over fifty years old). Both these sections would be presented in fully downloadable JPEG formats, using only public domain images. Other plans include expanding the Fast Facts Files sections to include several language choices, and several sub-sections (languages, religions, etc.). "The site's viewership has grown consistently since the first pages were put up just for fun over three years ago. I would like to dedicate more time to the site, but need sponsorship funding to enable this to happen". Contact: Alix Lee Speakman. E-mail:
