OH/PL002 DODWORTH MINERS MEMORIAL FUND
The Dodworth & District Miners Memorial Fund was proposed to "procure, provide and maintain a memorial which could act as a focal point in the village of Dodworth, Barnsley to coal miners killed or injured in the surrounding areas from 1850 to the present day". Various continuing 'awareness events' are being proposed to highlight the construction of the memorial including canoeing, paragliding, sporting and other expeditionary events. This is a unique opportunity to record our rich social mining history and heritage for others to learn from. The surrounding mines supplied coal to the great industries on which our country was built - coal that heated our homes and powered our railways and our navy's ships which were used to discover the British Empire. All donations will be gratefully received and should be paid direct to the 'Dodworth & District Miners Memorial Fund' holding account by electronic transfer.     Account details: Dodworth & District Miners Memorial Fund.     Sort code: 11-00-23.     Account number: 01834551. Donations can be made at any Halifax Bank over the counter, using the sort code, account number and recipient details supplied. Contact: Richard G. Jessop. E-mail: Jessjessop2003@yahoo.co.uk.

LAKE DISTRICT NATIONAL PARK AUTHORITY
Lakes for Living, Lakes for Life is a first in the UK. It will bring together senior decision makers from all over the world to enjoy enthusiastic discussion of how those involved in business, the community and the environment can and should work together for the benefit of lake environments. The conference will be jointly hosted by the Environment Agency and Lake District National Park Authority in the perfect location of the Lake District National Park, England's largest National Park and home to the country's longest 'mere', Windermere, deepest water, Wastwater and tallest 'pike', Scafell. The venue for the event will be the four-star Low Wood Hotel, which occupies a privileged shoreline setting offering fine views across Lake Windermere. The organisers can offer potential sponsors an excellent platform to promote their organisation within this renowned location and stunning environment. The conference aims to bring together all those who work with lakes worldwide and contribute to the development of the network of practitioners across Europe and beyond. Over 150 senior decision makers and influencers are expected to attend from environmental, economic and community sectors associated with Lakeland access across the globe. Through workshops, site visits and key note speeches, the conference will deliver and collate the very best of experience and current practice. In addition, delegates will benefit from the chance to build networks with overseas colleagues and learn about their successes and experiences. Delegates taking part in the debate will come from worldwide organisations including the Living Lakes Network in Europe and beyond and the North American Lake Management Society (NALMS) in the US and Canada, as well as a host of key UK environmental alliances including Natural England, The National Trust, the RSPB and the Forestry Commission. Together with the strong presence of organisations with an economic direction, such as Cumbria Tourism and the North West Development Agency, their combined experiences will enrich the conference and contribute to future worldwide lake management policy. The day programme includes energising and inspiring international presentations by key sector representatives. Structured workshops will address each element of the mix to explore and understand the core issues. Delegates will also enjoy practical site visits to see exemplars of environmental, community and business initiatives to stimulate discussion between all those who work in the economic, environmental and community sectors within lake catchments. Each destination catchment has its share of problems, attractions and opportunities. A programme of evening entertainment will add a lighter touch to the proceedings as delegates are invited to enjoy the company of new found friends and colleagues against the magnificent backdrop of the Lake District. "We will forge strong working relationships with all our sponsors to identify the potential synergies between our organisations and ensure our objectives are aligned and promoted effectively. There are a number of sponsorship packages available which are outlined in the conference brochure, A Slice of the Action, available via the download button. These can be tailored to your individual requirements which we would be pleased to discuss further". Contact: Julian Smith, External Fundraiser.

THAMES SAILING BARGE IRONSIDES
An opportunity is available to help maintain a Thames sailing barge that was built in 1900. "This swan of the sea can offer in return for sponsorship a chance to sail on this majestic vessel, either on a weekday or at the weekend. Corporate events can be catered for. The upkeep and maintenance of the barge, which will enable us to keep her running and in the public eye for many years to come, is very expensive. Year on year more barges disappear and soon the heritage will be lost if we can't get sponsorship. The Thames Barges helped in the rebuilding of London during the Blitz. They also kept London clean by taking out refuse. Some of our historic vessels were involved in the fleet of little ships that went to Dunkirk. Please help us to keep our barge running - we are only custodians of these historic vessels". Contact: Linda Hoy. Address: S.B. Ironsides, Iron Wharf Boatyard, Abbeyfields, Faversham, Kent ME13 7BY.

OH/002 ODD BOY FILM
Odd Boy Film offers the opportunity to sponsor a short film based on the poem My Black Skin, written by Nicholas Pinnock. The film is inspired by Black History Month. "We are looking for a small amount of sponsorship to enable us to go into production. The piece is primarily a 'talking heads' in style, but with more movement, shot in black and white and with a fairly loose camera style. The length of the piece will be approximately three minutes. Throughout the film we intercut between different people: men, women and children from all walks of life, unknown, known and well-known from all over England, Scotland, Ireland and Wales, reciting either a word, a line or a verse from the poem. We will see these people in the various locations where they live or work, so as to get across the feeling that the people the poem refers to, and is for, are those who are these people - everyday people from different walks of life, that do different things and may have different levels of reference/relevance in the piece, but that all share a common bond: the fact that black skin is important to them. Intercut into the poem will be film and pictures of iconic people from history: Malcolm X, Nelson Mandela, Sidney Poitier, William Wilberforce, JFK, Rosa Parks, Jesse Owens and Abraham Lincoln. We will feature a black albino and someone doing sign language; a foreign language speaker; and someone with limited abilities, so that as many people as possible will be represented by, and will identify with, the piece. We also feel it necessary to include people from other races with an established link to black culture, either through what they do for/with the black community or if they are linked to it through marriage or are parents to black, mixed race children. Our aim is have two to three charities on board, such as the ACLT and the Skin Cancer Research Fund, to help raise awareness. We will look to submit to broadcast by the end of October. Please invest in a worthwhile creative and social piece". Contact: Ryan Elliott. Address: 6b Friern Road, London SE22 0AT. Tel.: 0044 7976727611. E-mail:
