Corporate Sponsorship Charter

  1. Wrekin Rowers are self-funding their entry into the Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge in December 2021 (#TWAC2021)
  2. We are fundraising for two charities – The Royal National Institute for the Blind (RNIB) and Severn Hospice which serves, Shropshire, Telford & Wrekin and Mid Wales
  3. Sponsors can choose to donate equipment, or specifically instruct us to use their donation for equipment purchase to be used by Wrekin Rowers for the challenge
    Within three months of completing the event, all proceeds from the sale of sponsored equipment, will be distributed equally between the RNIB and Severn Hospice
  4. Money received from corporate sponsorship will only be used on items which promote both the event and the team. The aim is to maximise our ability to raise money for our chosen charities.
    Examples (but not limited to) of this type of expenditure would be: Creation of promotional material including video production; travel costs to an event to support charitable fund raising; the adding of logos to the boat and clothing.
  5. A full income and expenditure analysis will be available upon request, following the completion of both the event and the sale of specific donated items.
