British engineer Dan Everard, working within his social enterprise, Dragonmobility, will shortly reach the milestone of 2,000 individual powerchairs made for disabled people. "Dan's innovation has revolutionised mobility for disabled children and his career has spanned four decades and provided liberation and integration for disabled people worldwide. The year-long 2000 Lives Set in Motion celebrations centre around a balloon release, symbolising the lives touched all around the world, and we are fundraising for DragonMobility's ongoing work by asking companies and individuals to sponsor single balloons for 100 each. There are also larger corporate packages available which include additional PR and marketing advantages for the sponsor throughout the campaign. In addition to the balloon release, a coffee-table book will be published profiling some of the individuals who have benefitted, many of whom are now adults, highlighting their own personal and professional successes. We also plan a gala dinner towards the end of 2015 to round off the varied events of 2000 Lives Set in Motion. By sponsoring this campaign you will be contributing to the next generation of innovation and technology for disabled people. I do hope that you will consider working with us and we look forward to hearing from you". Contact: Ruth Everard, Director. Address: Dragonmobility (UK) CIC.

The Beauford Belle is no ordinary car! With her looks she is one of the most photographed cars in the UK and enjoys regularly participating in the London, Chantilly, Maastricht, Disney, Edinburgh and Paris annual parades.     World wide TV exposure: With the New Year's Day London Parade not far away, here is a fantastic opportunity for sponsors to become involved with The Beauford Belle. She has been photographed with some of her best friends, including The Pink Panther, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang and the Minis from The Italian Job. Her passengers have included among others, London's Town Crier, London's Ambassador for Goodwill, The Blue Flamingo from New Zealand and Betty Boo from America. The Beauford Belle is currently seeking sponsorship to enable initiatives that will help raise publicity for charities through parades and events. She also loves to be involved in corporate functions, films, TV, weddings and other special occasions. So well known is she that she has her own poem: "There is a car that casts a spell, She goes by the name of The Beauford Belle, She leads parades both near and far, With her classic lines she is a star. She's very sexy and sublime, In red and black she is divine. She loves publicity, photos too, She's more than happy to pose for you. So when you see her, wave and smile At her stunning looks and unique style!". She is very excited about any new possibilities! Contact: Andy or Julie.

Alex Peters has been building up his 2007 Ford Mustang GT for track days over a number of years. He is now entering sprint race and hillclimb events with it. "In return for sponsorship, I would like to offer the use of my car in publicity campaigns, to carry company logos on the car and my race suit. You will note from my blog that the highly unusual and photogenic Mustang is a huge hit with the crowds at race venues and in public,
particularly with ladies. This could provide your company with great popular credibility". Contact: Alex Peters. Address: Castle Wood, Rhododendron Avenue, Meopham DA13 0TU. E-mail: alex.peters@blacksuntechnology.co.uk.

Blackpool Hire-a-Bike is the largest street-based, fixed station bike hire scheme in the UK outside of London. Similar in design to London's Barclays Bike Hire scheme, it has over fifty fixed on-street stations and 500 bikes available to the residents and visitors of the UK's foremost seaside resort, twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week. Around twelve million visitors came to Blackpool each year to visit the many unique attractions, including the pleasure beach, promenade, golden mile, zoo and parks, with bike stations positioned at every major attraction, including exits to the major car parks. Awareness of the scheme is high amongst residents and visitors with an estimated 80,000+ miles total mileage to date. The scheme is promoted widely - and is a major part of cycling-associated events such as the Illuminations' Ride-the-lights, the Tour of Britain and Skyrides. Through the branding and information on the stations and bikes, the scheme creates a very large footprint in a very busy environment and as such is a highly attractive sponsorship opportunity. The network of stations provides twenty-four hour access to bikes for leisure, commuting and utility cycling. It improves the health of its members, reduces the impact of motorised vehicles in the busy town and has almost universal positive reception from residents and local press. The scheme is closely associated with VisitBlackpool, the NHS and Blackpool Council and is strongly supported by Blackpool Council members. Operated by Hourbike Ltd, a team of locally employed and trained mechanics ensure ongoing serviceability of the bikes and stations, and provides customer facing sales and support to customers on the street. An interactive voice response system provides twenty-four hour ticket fulfilment and a website provides online customer information and advance sales. The scheme is seeking a sponsor to ensure ongoing sustainability and growth of the project. Every aspect of the scheme branding, name, station and bike signage, materials and tariff are open to negotiation as part of the package. A single, multi-year sponsorship arrangement is preferred but all interested parties will be considered. A real time map of the extent of the station locations can be found at www.hourbike.com/blackpool (please see link below). Contact: Tim Caswell, Managing Director.

Drivers Edge UK is an innovative organisation that aims to dramatically reduce the instances of road traffic accidents and driving-related crimes in the UK by providing young people, typically aged between 14 and 21, with a comprehensive training package, including workshops and seminars. Each preventative interactive session takes the students through the key causes of road traffic accidents, so there is a clear foundation to give young people the awareness they need to spot a dangerous situation, plus other advantages. "Our intensive mentoring and coaching programme equips young people with the skills, knowledge and conscience to drive safely and behave responsibly. Drivers Edge UK exploits the popular topic of driving to raise our students' self esteem, achievement and personal development. After losing a friend of ours through a road traffic accident in July 2006, we know first hand what it's like to see lives crumble as a result". The branding of a corporate sponsor or partner will appear on some or all of the following, depending on the level and type of sponsorship    The Drivers Edge UK website (A)    Quarterly Newsletter (to our 500 stakeholders and organisations) (A)    Drivers Edge UK information leaflet (given to every attendee)     Drivers Edge UK brochure (B)     Certificates of Attendance (B)    Safe Road User agreement (C)     Toolkit Bag (including leaflet and sponsored gifts)    Annual Reception (yearly - July).

Opened in late 2007, a five minute journey from the UK's busiest airport, London Heathrow, and a fifteen minute train ride from London Paddington station, London Motor Museum is an exciting, innovative museum which encapsulates the essence of motoring achievement and features an element of extreme conversion vehicles never seen before. The museum's collection currently houses over 200 vehicles, covering the eras of the 1930s through to modern day concept cars. A wide range of transport vehicles is displayed, including bikes, trucks and concept cars. Being the only motor museum in the London region, the museum is able to stimulate the most profound motoring fanatics as well as provide an educational element which introduces innovation and core aspects of technology and design. A wide market reach, with targeted audiences being families, predominately males, and a large tourist interest, the London Motor Museum provides a fantastic canvas for inventive displays and exhibitions, being involved in some of the most prestigious and well-known motoring events - such as Goodwood Festival of Speed and Top Gear Live - and working for companies such as Nokia, Microsoft and Disney. London Motor Museum has always heavily based employment for the younger generation and provides hands-on opportunities to be involved in all aspects, such as planning, marketing and production. The museum's aims are to provide unique opportunities for the local community; it aims to raise funds for local youth programmes as well as establish a base and provide training through workshops and employment prospects. The museum is seeking sponsorship to market and promote the education programmes and to fund core collaboration projects with the community. The redevelopment of the suites will greatly improve revenue sources. To implement the second phase, a subsidiary museum in central London is planned. London Motor Museum is looking for sponsors to help fund projects and the redevelopment of the museum. All sponsors will get advertising space on the museum website, within the museum premises and on all brochures and leaflets, great marketing material and use of the museum facilities and vehicles.

This annual event is a prime opportunity to reach thousands of end-user customers in the mobility and disability markets. With spending power worth around 80 billion per annum, this is a market not to be ignored. Registered charity Mobility Choice organises the national Mobility Roadshow, the UK's premier consumer mobility and independent lifestyle event for people with disabilities, their families and carers. Over three days it attracts around 10,000 visitors from all over the UK, Europe and beyond. Since 1983 the Mobility Roadshow has provided a unique platform for people wishing to test drive adapted and specialist vehicles, either as a disabled driver or to test comfort and safety for a disabled passenger. Non-disabled people would never consider buying a car without test driving first: why should disabled people not have that same opportunity? The Roadshow provides this facility, bringing together leading names in the motoring sector with a range of vehicles adapted with the latest hand controls, plus conversion specialists with wheelchair passenger or drive-from-wheelchair options. In addition it provides a vast showcase of all that's new in the mobility market to enable an independent lifestyle - motoring accessories, wheelchairs and powerchairs, mobility and all-terrain scooters, all-ability cycles, products for the home, fitness and rehabilitation equipment, accessible travel and leisure, clothing and hundreds of gadgets and gizmos. The Mobility Roadshow celebrated its thirtieth anniversary in 2013 with a bumper event at the Telford International Centre. A wide variety of sponsorship opportunities are available, from headline sponsorship to individual areas within the show, such as: visitor registration; test drive control; design zone; station shuttle service; mobility loans; information point, press office; sports arena; climbing wall and other activities; pre-event news bulletins; radio/TV advertising; exhibitors' reception; plus banner sites and infrastructure support at the venue (updated details available on request). As well as the thousands of visitors who attend, there is the potential to reach thousands more through the Mobility Roadshow website and its dedicated Mobility Choice Motoring online portal, comprehensive product and service directory and active social media sites. Full details of potential sponsorship opportunities are available from Jacqui Jones, Executive Director - or please do call to discuss any specific requirements or suggestions.

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.

Truckersworld attracts around 70 million hits a year, mostly from truck drivers but also police officers, Highways Agency officers, government ministers and many others - and the theft alert system described below is only part of the organisation's activity. The Theft Text Alert System is aimed at fighting the criminals who undertake vehicle theft. Truck drivers in the UK are registering on the site as extra "eyes on the road", locating stolen vehicles. As Truckersworld is notified of a vehicle theft, they text out the details to lorry drivers who are registered to receive the information - and then act to help find the stolen vehicles. "Due to the lack of police resources, recovery of stolen vehicles is rare, but with thousands of extra eyes the chance of recovery is increased. The alert system has started with theft of lorries but will expand further if successful. As criminals start to recognise that the theft of vehicles is being broadcast by text to lorry drivers nationwide, this will act as a deterrent, thus helping to reduce both thefts and insurance costs. The system is endorsed by ACPO (the Association of Chief Police Officers) and Truckpol. We all need to fight against crime". Truckersworld is interested in talking to potential sponsors of the system. Contact: Barrie Tozer. Address: 29 Storeys Lane, Skegness, Lincolnshire PE24 5LR. Tel.: 01754811139. E-mail:
