Lloyds TSB sponsorship

Report: Dave Turnbull -

Lloyds TSB

We are very pleased to announce sponsorship of the Endurance Squad and Club by Lloyds TSB bank.

Lloyds TSB are one of the main sponsors of the 2012 London Olympic Games and it is great for the squad to be a part of that association.

The sponsorship of the squad this year is for £5,000 which also includes a £3,000 kit deal and a club marquee, plus many other benefits to the club.

There is a publicity launch with the Sponsors, and national and local media in attendance at the track next Tuesday June 24th at 6:45pm

It is very important that all parents and athletes of the squad attend and that we get the sponsorship off to a good start.

The squad kit will be available this week and must be worn on the night of the launch for photo shoot.

The £5,000 12 month deal is something I am confident we can build on next year, Lloyds TSB have agreed to review the sponsorship annually.

I am hoping we can continue with the sponsorship right up to the 2012 Olympics but this can only happen with your support.

Melanie Cooke who has kindly put the sponsorship together for the squad will explain further details on the launch night.
