CHRIST THE KING COLLEGE
Christ the King College is the first joint Church of England and Roman Catholic secondary school on the Isle of Wight. Its current age range is 11 to 18 (Years 7 to 13); its student roll is around 1,400 students. The College was founded in September 2008, following the successful amalgamation of two previous middle schools. In November 2009, the College had its first Ofsted inspection, which commented on the quite exceptional progress made in such a short period of time and stated that the College has been steered through its first year with impressive coherence and success. The College is now pursuing plans to become a Specialist School in Mathematics and Computing. As part of the bidding process the College must raise 50,000 in sponsorship. In return, sponsors will have the opportunity for valuable PR exposure in association with a successful Christian College and its reputation of excellence and high standards, opportunities for staff involvement and professional development, as well as direct involvement in shaping the future of the first Christian High School on the Isle of Wight.

    EESS/PL002     THE MAHMOODIAH TRUST
The Mahmoodiah Trust has been set up exclusively to raise funds to establish The Mahmoodiah Academy of Excellence, a secondary school for young females in a deprived area of the Punjab province in Pakistan. The institution will initially cater for a hundred students and provide an exemplary education. This is a grassroots development programme and its success relies on the co-operation and support of dedicated, passionate and committed individuals and organisations willing to share their skills and expertise as well as sacrifice their time. Training centres will be founded to offer teacher training to local females. Whereas it is hoped that the educational establishment will be a beacon which other schools may follow and to which they may aspire, it is also hoped that the entire project will benefit the community and country at large with regard to local investment, business and the economy. In a country which has long neglected the education of its citizens, especially girls, this project may be the only chance for many to gain a quality education and broaden the understanding of the world in which they live - and ultimately enhance their prospects for the future. With a team of dedicated volunteers who have amongst them a background in business, education and international development, The Mahmoodiah Trust is confident that with support and investment from related organisations, this project could eventually broaden its horizons and invest in other educational establishments in other developing countries.

STIRLING SCHOOL OF ENGLISH
"Please help the Stirling School of English to continue to offer free English Language teaching". The Stirling School of English is looking for a sponsor with an interest in increasing global understanding. The school offers free English tuition to non-English speakers. It has currently more than two hundred students from over thirty countries being taught by about twenty-five qualified volunteers in thirty different classes each week. It caters for students of all ranges of proficiency in the language, beginners to advanced. These students are here either working or studying and every part of the globe is represented in the school. The school, however, does more than teach language skills. It also helps students integrate into the community and provides social activities to reduce a sense of isolation. Uniquely amongst teaching institutions, students can join at any time during the year, so they can begin to learn the language as soon as they arrive in the area. This is particularly important in helping people integrate into the community. The school also links to employers seeking to improve the language skills of their migrant workers. "Sponsorship would enable us to maintain our free service, but also expand our activities (eg extending crèche facilities to enable more working mothers to attend), improve our premises and our training of volunteers. It would also help us commission the design of teaching materials as well as purchase computer equipment to facilitate modern learning methods. Above all, it would help produce financial stability and relieve the school from reliance on a variable grant regime, as well as enabling it to develop as a social enterprise and allow it to generate income. Sponsors would be welcome to get involved as consultants to put together a professional business plan and help the school develop in creative ways and sustain its activities into the future".

TAKE 2 THEATRE SCHOOL
Take 2 Theatre School is a South Yorkshire based theatre school offering children and young people the opportunity to gain confidence and develop their skills through performing arts. "Our groups are aged from 3 to 19 and we have workshops in dance, drama and musical theatre. We are seeking sponsors to help with the costs of putting on shows at the theatre, hiring costumes and musicians and the costs of publicity for the productions, eg posters, leaflets, T Shirts. We charge minimal fees to our members as we want everyone in the community to be able to afford to access our sessions; but this means there are few funds left to pay for the costs involved in putting on a show".

TORQUAY GIRLS' GRAMMAR SCHOOL
Torquay Girls' Grammar School's current gym is a testament to the builders of the day. "Unfortunately that day was in 1939 and the single badminton court-sized gym can only be described as small and sad. It was designed to be used by only 120 girls, some of whom, on returning after more than half a century, recognise the same wall bars and ropes as either old friends or instruments of torture. The gym cannot cope with the sporting demands of our 860 girls. Parts of it are crumbling, parts of it are mouldy, parts of it are absent (no showers) and all parts are smelly. This is hardly surprising after seventy-two years of loyal service. We have the site, the plans and the planning pre-application for a four badminton court Sports Hall, with fitness suite, classroom and amenities. We hope to raise 100,000 to support a bid to the Department of Education. I am sure you are aware that there were no women shortlisted for the BBC Sports Personality of the Year recently! This was despite many worthy female candidates who had arguably achieved greater feats than some candidates listed. Chrissie Wellington, four times world champion tri-athlete, is a deserving example. Our girls are rightly outraged by this turn of events, so I have encouraged them to respond by becoming either (i) the future editor of a publication entitled to vote for the award; or (ii) a world champion sportswoman that they cannot ignore. As an outstanding school (Ofsted, September 2011), I know we can give our girls the motivation, the skills and the guidance to fulfil either of these ambitions. Unfortunately, as our flyer clearly shows, we cannot provide them with the facilities to become champion sportswomen. We desperately need a Sports Hall - and feel the fact that we do not have one is an extension of the discrimination highlighted by the Award. Your sponsorship would support our efforts to enable girls to improve their fitness, participate in sport and perhaps have the chance to become future world champions. These girls will become tommorow's leaders and your sponsorship would resonate in their minds". Contact: Dr Nicholas Smith, Headteacher. Address: 30 Shiphay Lane, Shiphay, Torquay TQ2 7DY.

    EESS/001     THE ALAN WINNER ACADEMY
"We are looking for a sponsor. The Alan Winner Academy was established in 1985. It is a sports academy teaching the discipline of Chinese Martial Art with classes from Monday to Friday 4.00pm to 10.00pm for all ages. It currently has about a hundred students. Given the number of years, we have become an integral part of our local community in Acton, Chiswick and Ealing. Through his teaching Alan provides much needed guidance to youngsters from underprivileged backgrounds, to adults who are dealing with personal or physical problems and to the general public - it's a great way to stay healthy. But also Alan provides the highest level of coaching to make the selection for the national team. For the past twenty-seven years we were based at Acton Swimming Baths, where we had exclusive use of a small but lovely training room. Although this room was half the size of a competition area, we still managed to get numerous first places in the British Nationals, third and fifth in the European Wushu Championships and twelfth and seventeenth in the World. As from December 4th, 2011, our training room at Acton Swimming Baths has no longer been available to us as the centre closed for redevelopment. We have finally found a location which would be perfect for the Academy to continue. Now we are faced with the question of how to fund the new place. It is a scouts' hut on Popes Lane put up for sale by The Southfield Trust. The location is on a main road, so it would quickly become a local hot spot. We are determined to keep the tradition of The Alan Winner Academy alive as it is unique in its field. There is no other place in the world that combines all the different disciplines: Meditation, Chi Gong, Tai Chi, Wing Chun kung fu, Shaolin Kickboxing (Sanshou), Wushu International and floor gymnastics under one roof. And Alan, having reached the stage of Grand Master at the age of fifty-four has a wealth of knowledge acquired since the age of eight when he started in the competitive world of swimming".

    EESS/004     ELDERSLIE NURSERY SCHOOL
Elderslie Nursery School is a non-profit-making, parent committee-run nursery school with charity status. It provides learning through play for children of multiple abilities between the ages of two and five years old, as well offering an accessible form of support to parents of young children in the local community. The nursery has facilities to teach children with some physical and learning disabilities, as well as able children, and promises a safe, encouraging and fun learning environment through play of all types. Elderslie Nursery School attracts the majority of its funds to buy resources and equipment for the children through fundraising. "The parent committee and local community all help with the planning and implementation of the events and, although this helps, this method can only raise so much and relies heavily on community and public support which can be erratic - so we also rely on funding from external sources of support such as other charities and sponsorship. Our ongoing intention is to provide equipment and resources that will enable children with a wide range of abilities, including children with speech and language difficulties, physical disabilities and autistic spectrum disorders, to learn through play and their environment to the best of their abilities. We are also hoping to find money and/or support for a marketing and publicity campaign, so that we can raise awareness of what we do within the surrounding areas where we are often not known about. We can offer advertising in exchange for support, as we are based within a village hall which is heavily used by other groups to - and our information board is available for all the public to view".

    EESS/007     HIGHWORTH WARNEFORD SCHOOL
The governors of Highworth Warneford School have decided to apply for Technology College status because they believe this would have the greatest benefit to all pupils across the curriculum. As well as focussing on the lead subjects of Design Technology, Mathematics and Science, this intitiative will lead to the raising of standards in other subjects for all pupils, regardless of age or ability. In addition, they will be working closely with local primary schools, businesses and the community to ensure that Technology College Status benefits all the members of their local community. As part of their bid, they need to raise 50,000 in sponsorship which would then be matched by over 500,000 in government grants, over the next four years. They have already raised 30,000 and are seeking a further 20,000 to meet their target. Their hope is that sponsors will be keen to join them in this venture and be a part of not only raising standards in the school but also providing an exciting range of learning opportunities for all members of their local community.

Staunton Park Community School is aiming to become a Specialist Sports College with tennis, basketball, watersports and athletics being its focus sports, in addition to its existing sporting provision. The school has a good record in Sport. OFSTED has classed it as 'an improving school' and its Sports Department is widely acknowledged as being a centre of excellence. Hampshire Local Education Authority and Havant Borough Council are firmly backing its bide. The school also enjoys strong support from a wide range of community groups. In addition the school is working with a Special School as a partner in its very inclusive bid. Its pupils respond well to sport and the school believes that, by becoming a Sports College, its academic achievement as well as sporting prowess will be very much improved. The school serves the disadvantaged community of Leigh Park and its management believe that Sports College status will boost self-belief, raise self esteem and so improve and enrich the lives of all in its locality. The good news is that every 100 sponsorship funding donated towards capital refurbishment and equipment will generate 200 matched funding from the DfES. The school is keen to invite donors and sponsors to play a part in helping the next generation of Leigh Park youngsters achieve success and improve sporting opportunities in their community.

EAST DURHAM COMMUNITY TRANSPORT: UNI-TRIPS
Uni-Trips is a new initiative that will bring together Durham University students and the local community in cultural and educational exchange. Uni-Trips was created with help from University students who have outlined their need for a scheduled service that will enable them to visit local Community Groups plus attractions, events and places of natural, educational and historical interest within the safety and security of a members-only club that focuses on their needs and one which they will support, patronise and promote.      Uni-Trips is about cultural exchange and understanding      Uni-Trips is about promoting the north east of England to visiting future leaders      Uni-Trips is about making visitors feel safe, valued and welcome      Uni-Trips is about supporting Community Groups and local business      Uni-Trips is about bringing the University into the community      Uni-Trips is about bringing the community into the University      Uni-Trips is about education, experience and interaction      Uni-Trips is about giving a local voice to International ears      Uni-Trips is about supporting community transport      Uni-Trips is about ... so much more. Students will become members of Uni-Trips and will be offered the opportunity to volunteer for the service which will enhance their skills and increase their experiences. There are 15,000 students attending Durham University, which is regarded as the third best university in the UK and in the top fifteen in the world - 25% are international students. "We believe that there is a real opportunity for the right sponsor to align themselves to the service and become associated with the great charitable works that it will both deliver and promote, and will be given significant brand awareness through signage on the Uni-Trips vehicles, prominent exposure on the Uni-Trips website and the social networking sites too, in addition to all Uni-Trips' stationery and merchandising. Student volunteers will assist in promotion as Uni-Trips 'Socialites' through their social networking connections. We could not find anything like it at any other university in the UK and, therefore, the opportunity to expand the Uni-Trips model across the academic network is a very real prospect".

Benefits

This not-for-profit scheme offers all-round benefits to all parties involved

     Students achieve their goals of volunteering and learning about the culture and history of the North East Region and also have the opportunity to volunteer with Uni-Trips and/or the community groups they visit
     The Community Groups who have the opportunity to tell eager visitors about their organisation, history and activities, and also generate income to aid their sustainability from a percentage of Uni-Trips' ticket sales and who, by selling their wares, may also attract young and enthusiastic volunteers
     Durham University benefits from having students that have a more rounded experience during their stay which in turn will attract more students by their endorsement
     Community transport benefits because any surplus generated from ticket sales after transport costs have been deducted goes towards providing accessible transport to people in deprived communities who are socially excluded through mobility problems and isolation.

LUMOTORSPORT
LUMotorsport is Loughborough University's Formula Student team. The team design, build and race their own single seat race car against teams from all over the world. In 2012 LUMotorsport attended events at Silverstone in the UK, Red Bull Ring in Austria and Hockenheim in Germany. LUM is made up of a number of students studying various degrees from Automotive Engineering to Finance and Business Management. Unlike other Formula Student teams, LUMotorsport is entirely organised and run by the student team members, with guidance from the academic and technical staff only when required. This means that the team is responsible not only for producing a brand new car every year but also for all finances, health and safety, as well as the business side of running a motorsport team. This tough task is made even more difficult by the fact that all of the work must be done around the team members' ongoing degree courses. "This year will be LUMotorsport's tenth competitive car and our aim is to become the top UK university competing and to achieve a top ten ranking in the Formula Student Series Competition. In order to achieve this target, a number of new innovative ideas are being implemented, including a new, lightweight, cast aluminium modular rear end to support all drivetrain components and rear suspension; new CBR600RR engine with extensive development into a fuel-efficient map and incorporating a new intake, sump and exhaust; and the implementation of a new electronics system which includes dynamic data acquisition, communications and information system, traction control, launch control and paddle shift system. LUMotorsport welcomes all types of sponsorship, ranging from direct financial support to technical assistance. Benefits include placing a logo on the LFS12 car; but, more importantly, an opportunity to be directly associated with some of the most talented young engineers in the country and have exclusive access to potential graduate recruits. In the past, many of our sponsors have benefitted from this contact and have taken on some very valued employees. To develop this graduate interest, we encourage sponsors to visit us whenever possible, both at the university and on track. All of this helps to generate a great team spirit, not to mention the opportunity to see the students at work and acquire some useful contacts in this diverse and stimulating environment. For more information about the team, please visit our website". Contact: Marcus Naylor. Address: LUMotorsport, Steward Muller Building, Loughborough University, Loughborough, Leicestershire LE11 3TU.

"We have become increasingly successful in recent years, finishing second in the BUCS South Eastern Premier Division in 2013/2014 and our first team has even attracted players with international caps. Our teams are filled with a diverse group of highly academic and competitive undergrad and postgrad students at UCL, studying anything from Politics to Chemical Engineering! As we grow both in size and ability, our need for more coaching hours, training kit/equipment and pool time increases.

    EESU/PL005    
UNIVERSITY OF NORTHAMPTON
Businesses throughout the Midlands and beyond are already starting to benefit from having a fully-fledged University in their midst. When the former UCN recently achieved full research degree awarding powers as The University of Northampton, many opportunities were created for companies, organisations and individuals to participate in the year of celebrations that is following the inauguration. Any business can now take advantage of a programme of integrated sponsorship, and in so doing will gain both a commercial advantage and the chance to build lasting relationships with customers and influencers associated with the new University. A wide range of sponsorship arrangements has been established that will allow everyone to participate in this initiative, with the benefits to business only really limited by imagination. In addition to packages (Bronze, Silver & Gold), the University is keen to look at bespoke arrangements that would enable the sponsorship benefits to be tailored to the requirements of the relevant business or individual. Examples of the areas available for involvement include VIP Dinners, Open Days, School/Faculty Launches, Masterclasses, Conferences, Celebrity Guest Presentations, Summer Events, Fashion Shows, Printed Media, Student Filofax/Campus Guide, Buildings, etc. The benefits to participating organisations are significant and can include website links, logos on appropriate University literature, membership of the Supporters organisation, attendance at VIP events with the Vice Chancellor, tickets to other suitable events, access to 10,000+ students and 1,200+ staff, an enhanced business profile as a recognised supporter of the University, incorporation into media exposure that is growing all the time, etc. Contributions for elements of the sponsorship opportunities can start from as little as 2,000 and go right up to 100,000+ for major infrastructure projects that may attract the larger national company. There is effectively an opportunity for everyone, and sponsors are encouraged to act now to secure the best for their business, organisation or circumstance. The University has appointed an agency to manage initial enquiries, and interested parties are asked to contact them in the first instance on 01604 497779. Contact: Geoff Morgan, Director.

    EESU/001     THE DURHAM UNION SOCIETY
The Durham Union Society is looking for sponsorship for debates and speakers. This is an opportunity for sponsors to advertise in numerous Union Society publications sent out to over 3,000 members and thousands more prospective members each year.

The Union is the largest Durham society and has a proud tradition at the centre of Durham life, forged over the last 159 years. Since its foundation the Union has played a vital role in providing a central place for students from all colleges to meet. This role has become increasingly important since 1965 when it opened 24 North Bailey Club. The club contains a bar, beer garden, reading room, snooker room and guest rooms. Sponsorship of the Union Society would give sponsors direct access to its members and also to other members of the University, depending on how the sponsorship program was structured. Other sponsorship opportunities include poster campaigns, advertisements in the Termcard, use of the Debating Chamber for recruiting purposes and placement of sponsor display stands in the Chamber.
