This year, the long-running, highly successful annual Edale Country Day will be held on Sunday 10th June. Many large and small businesses have sponsored this charitable event which attracts people from the Peak District, nearby cities and overseas. With good weather, we can expect around 2,500 visitors.
Edale Country Day is unique in uniting local businesses and the whole community to support Edale Primary School and the Village Hall. All the profits are divided between developing facilities for both these essential village amenities.
We would be really grateful if you would consider sponsoring us this year. This would enable your business to become better known and show your good will and commitment to the local community.
In return for your sponsorship you will receive the following on Country Day:
- Promotion of your business through logo placement on flags around the main marquee
- Your business name and logo displayed prominently on the website (www.edalecountryday.org.uk)
- Your business name and logo displayed on our event programme (given to all our Country Day visitors)
- 2 complimentary tickets to the event (worth £8.00)
There are a number of ways you can get involved through sponsorship of our Country Day:
- Donating money – any donation is gratefully received. However, if you give a minimum of £40, we will also enter you in the sponsors’ Hobby Horse Challenge, thereby giving your business an even higher profile on the day by announcing your business name over the PA system at the start of the Hobby Horse races;
- Donating products or vouchers for the auction or raffle.
- Supporting the cost of a display / exhibition – we have a number of displays throughout the day such as the Falconry and Circus Skills. The cost of these ranges from £100 – £450. If you would be interested in supporting us with one of these displays, we would place your company logo alongside the display details in our advertising and programme.
- Supporting the cost of the Marquee – The marquee costs us £2800 and is an integral part of the day for our “Craft & Tea Tent”. You may wish to support us with a donation towards the cost of the marquee.
We hope this year’s event will offer: a fell race, vintage vehicles, tempting produce and craft stalls, a caving tunnel, demonstrations in wool spinning and felting, and a fantastic falconry display. We are also hoping for a rare breed display with poultry, sheep and goats, sheep shearing, storytelling, face painting, Punch and Judy, a bouncy slide and pony and rides. There will also be live music from local bands. Refreshments are always a highlight, with a beer tent, a BBQ and a notoriously delicious tea and cake tent. The Fell Race alone attracts over 100 participants.
