Leicester Regatta Sponsorship


Sunday 26th April 2015 once again sees Leicester Regatta being held on the River Soar’s “Mile Straight” in the centre of Leicester.  This annual event hosted by Leicester Rowing club is a highlight of Leicester’s sporting calendar bringing competitors from all over the country to race in the heart of our great city.


It is  only through the support of generous individuals and companies that this event can be run.  This request is on behalf of the Regatta Committee to ask for your help in ensuring that our regatta is one of the best events in Leicestershire’s sporting calendar and that the future of competitive rowing in this city remains a healthy one  With the support of the people and businesses of Leicester and a lot of hard training from our members we are confident that the successes of last year can be repeated.  As an entirely volunteer led club Leicester Rowing Club relies on the income from the regatta to maintain its activities and ensure that the people of Leicester have access to the sport.   Sponsorship donations from local companies and organisations play a crucial role in ensuring that we can continue to support the development of young athletes, and maintain our fleet and facilities.


Your support, in its simplest form, would comprise a donation to the club which helps subsidise the running costs of the event and allows race fees to be kept low to encourage participation in the sport by as many people as possible.  We appreciate the economic climate isn’t the best but to give an idea just £25 would be enough to get an advert in the programme and secure the sponsorship of a number of races on the day.  We would also be happy to include a link your company on our very active website and can provide pictures from the day for your own promotional activities.


We also encourage any prospective supporter of the event to consider any ‘assistance in kind’ that their organisation may be able to offer.  Food and drink to be sold in the refreshment area or bar or raffle prizes are good examples of this type of assistance, although we would encourage any potential supporter to be creative with their suggestions.  If you choose to support us in person you will be made very welcome in the hospitality area, where you will get the chance to meet other friends of the Leicester Rowing Club and watch the day unfold in informed company.


Thank you for taking the time to read this request. All those who will benefit from any support you may donate to this event, represent the grass roots and emerging talent in a sport that has captured the nation’s attention over the past decade. The golden performances by sporting heroes such as Steve Redgrave and Matthew Pinsent are built on the foundations created by clubs such as Leicester and any support you can give is associating you with the continued development of the sport.


To support us, please complete the brief form and send it, together with your sponsorship, to our clubhouse address. Please do not hesitate to call us if you have any questions or would like to discuss the options in more detail. If you do not feel you can support us financially on this occasion, please feel free to come down to the riverside on the day and enjoy the atmosphere.
