"Do you believe in giving something back? Then this sponsorship opportunity is for you". Aberavon RFC was founded in 1876 and moved to its present home, the Talbot Athletic Ground, in 1907. Several of the current Ospreys squad have passed through Aberavon's ranks - flankers Justin Tipuric and James King, centre Ashley Beck, prop Ryan Bevington and scrum-half Rhys Webb have all gone on to represent Wales. "We play in the Welsh Principality Building Society Premiership, British & Irish Cup and the Swalec Cup and receive media coverage through TV, newspapers and numerous other media coverage. Aberavon RFC seeks sponsors to continue our development work in schools across Port Talbot with children aged 7-11 via our competitive sports programme for Rugby and Netball. The programme includes Rugby and Netball so that both girls and boys have an opportunity to take part in sport at a competitive level. It also provides many exit routes outside of schools that already exist with clubs for the children to follow if they don't already play for a team. The programme is part of a long-term initiative to develop and increase sport participation and rugby awareness, personal fitness and the need to balance sport with academic improvement within Port Talbot schools. Created to reinstate the positive relationship between Aberavon RFC and the Port Talbot primary schools, the programme has the support of local MPs, along with Neath & Port Talbot Council. The diversity of the programme has been a huge positive experience for over 3,000 pupils each season. Port Talbot has the second highest levels of obesity in Wales, along with other social issues and low income issues for families; but with your support we can help combat this together and brighten up the futures of the children we work with, along with putting your company's name into the schools', public's and children's eyes. In return for your becoming a partner we will develop a rights and activation package to align with your brand. Please check out more on the programme here: Costain currently sponsor the programme but are ending their involvement due to their project moving on from the area. Aberavon RFC also seek other commercial partners for shirt, community and advertising opportunities - see this page: We look forward to speaking with you to discuss any sponsorship you would like to consider with us".

The Extreme Sports Therapy Unit provides students with a way of developing their practical sports massage skills in a real working environment and it doesn't get any more real than an all-night event in bitter cold, pouring rain. As an experiential learning opportunity it is second to none, and the students benefit from being able to work as part of a team whilst improving their skill and knowledge base, thus developing their confidence and communication skills. The unit usually contains a mix of students, some of whom are qualified and working to gain further experience, whilst still at the College studying the Foundation Degree in Sport Health & Exercise, though the majority are students studying the L3 Diploma in the Prevention and Management of Sports Injuries. "We are geared up to service medium to large events and like to focus on Extreme Sports - hence our involvement with Chain Reaction Cycles and Thetford Mountain Bike Racing (Thetford MTB). We can operate up to twelve treatment tables at one time; and if required we can operate in multiple locations at the same event. The Unit is completely self-sufficient; we have a field kitchen and camping equipment and the only thing only thing we need is access to water and toilets (though a hot shower is always appreciated). We have developed considerably over the last five years and we are still looking to expand further. Whilst we have had some support from the College we are essentially self-funding - therefore any money made at events through donations is invested back into the business. With this in mind we are actively seeking sponsorship to help fund travel expenses, purchase new equipment and further improve the student learning experience. In return for sponsorship we can offer exposure at events in the UK and Europe and on our website. Rest assured that your business will be well represented as we are a very professional outfit that is serious about what we do. As we have huge exposure at events there are numerous branding opportunities on marquees, banners, flags, student shirts and our 7.5 tonne truck".

Crossroads is the leading provider of services to support carers and the people they care for in Coventry and Warwickshire. The charity is committed to providing high quality personalised services meeting both the needs of carers and the people they care for. The organisation aims to offer services that exceed the service users' expectations, are flexible, reliable, personalised and give peace of mind. As it is a charity, all of Crossroads' resources are used directly to provide services and to train staff to ensure it meets the needs of its users in the way they decide. Crossroads' aim is to provide that essential support to give the carer time out from their caring responsibilities, an opportunity to have a break and enable them to continue in their caring role. By supporting the carer, the charity can help the person they care for to remain living in their own home for as long as possible, something most of us would want to be able to do. Crossroads' aim is to prevent the breakdown of the carers' health, provide them with the support they need and enable them to do some of those things the caring role may prevent. Whether it is time to go shopping without having to rush, meet a friend for coffee or a glass of wine, play a round of golf or go for a swim: that's where Crossroads can step in and give 'time out' when and how it's needed. Overall the charity is managed by a board of trustees, all volunteers who give their time and energy to ensure the organisation is well managed and meets its statutory obligations. Many of the trustees are, or have been, carers and users of its services and bring with them a breadth of knowledge on carer's issues and many other skills from their working lives. The organisation is managed by a chief executive who has been with the charity for seventeen years. Each office is overseen by an experienced registered manager whose responsibility it is to ensure the delivery of quality care services to its carers and those they care for and to people with care needs who live alone. They are supported at each office by a team of co-ordinators and admin. staff to ensure the smooth and efficient operation of the services. "Our front line staff, our care support workers, is what Crossroads is all about. Well trained, dedicated, and recruited with great care the support workers are our biggest asset and provide efficient, caring and supportive services to all service users whether they have care needs or are carers".

St John Ambulance's Everyday Heroes, supported by Physio-Control, is a special awards programme celebrating the incredible stories of ordinary people who have used first aid to save a life.

Sponsorship opportunities are available for sponsors who would like to be associated with a recently formed football company which specialises in dream-come-true experiences for football fans everywhere (adults and children) and footballers at grassroots level. These opportunities will also appeal to sponsors who would like an association with the nation's Number 1 sport, not to mention its global appeal; and, at a time when there is such focus on obesity, to those who are seeking a link with a concept which encourages children - and adults - to live a healthy lifestyle by playing football. The concept has been tried and tested very successfully at a top venue and other venues are now being sought to expand the business. The adults' and children's events at the Premier League club are sold out months in advance, where the opportunity is also taken to raise money for charity. The company enjoys a very good relationship with The Great Ormond Street Hospital Children's Charity and looks to raise money for this most worthwhile of charities, as well other deserving causes, at all its events. Whilst the stadium experiences form the "core" of the business, the company has also successfully staged other events, such as theatre shows, where fans get the chance to meet former idols of the game and listen to stories of their football careers as well as interact in question and answer sessions. Currently there are other exciting events in the pipeline and one in particular which will be certain to receive excellent local media, and possibly TV, coverage. The signs of growth for this young company are excellent and sponsorship is considered very important as the company looks to expand and fully realise its potential and nationwide aspirations.

Gratitude ( is a spectacular outdoor public art installation which commemorates this extraordinary moment in time. The installation will bring together 49 uniquely designed human form sculptures in a display which invites contemplation and takes visitors on a creative journey of discovery. The image of key workers standing together, but apart, is one of the abiding images of our times - each worker socially distancing and standing apart, while at the same time showing a unique coming together. Each sculpture will be created by national and regional artists to reflect the stories and contributions of NHS staff and all key workers and will be sponsored by a different business. Free to visit, Gratitude will be hosted in high profile, accessible locations in Birmingham, Manchester, Edinburgh and London. The sculptures will be auctioned in October 2021 to raise funds for NHS Charities Together (Registered Charity Number 1186569). "Businesses and other local organisations are invited to sponsor a sculpture for £9,750 plus VAT, which provides a great opportunity for your company to recognise the tremendous efforts of your own employees during the pandemic, and to support artists and exhibition designers, who are giving us all some much-needed colour and vibrancy to our cities in this challenging period. We also appreciate that, as a business, you will want to see a return on this investment and use your sponsorship to reach all your stakeholders. There are various ways that you can do this, including employee and stakeholder engagement and driving customers to your business. Gratitude sponsorship is a great opportunity to promote your brand, what you do and key messages through our print and digital assets. These include the sculpture plaque, Gratitude website and the app. Our team will talk you through various ways of getting your message out there. So don't delay and join our other sponsors including Ocado, Wesleyan, HSBC, Browne Jacobson, Securitas, Thortful, Premier Inn, Selfridges and others ... we are now looking for our last twelve sponsors and need to know by June 2021".

The North East Lincolnshire Pride (trading as Grimsby Pride) committee have been providing an annual Pride festival for a number of years. The event always occurs on the Saturday after the August Bank Holiday, usually at Meridian Park, Cleethorpes. Its aim is to raise awareness and promote social integration of the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) community and other strains of the diverse communities within the North East Lincolnshire area. "As I am sure you are aware, it can be very difficult for all people that are unsure about their feelings with regards to their sexuality. We can offer support and encouragement through professional bodies and organisations that will be present on the day to help people through what can be a very troubling time. It also offers them the opportunity to enjoy a fabulous day with like-minded people. The festival has become hugely successful with thousands of people attending throughout the day, where they can enjoy a fantastic array of headline acts, local acts and a wealth of information, health awareness and retail stalls. We are looking to increase the attendance figures for this year and are planning a fantastic line up of entertainment and attractions to ensure a great success. We are a non-profit organisation with every member of the committee being volunteers. Due to funding cutbacks within the local authority, we are now seeking additional funding, sponsorship and donations. With this in mind, in the attached sponsorship pack are a compilation of packages available for your consideration. We hope that you can support us in some way, no matter how great or small. 2012 saw the management committee apply to the Charities Commission to become a registered charity. Our charity number is 1146977. In addition, we are in a growing, developing and exciting partnership with Grimsby Institute, developing a support group for the LGBT youth of North East Lincolnshire".

HPTH UK (now Hypopara UK) is the only UK charity providing advice, information and support to people affected by Hypoparathyroidism, a rare and life threatening endocrine condition. "Hypoparathyroidism (HPTH) can affect all ages. There are several forms - people may be born with it or it may be acquired later in life but, most commonly, it is caused by surgery to the neck. This latter group go into hospital with one condition and come out with another! All forms of HPTH cause a lack of parathyroid hormone which leads to low calcium levels in the blood. Calcium is vital to life and the levels can often be very unstable, causing hypos. Unlike diabetics, and despite very similar difficulties, HPTH patients have neither replacement hormone therapy nor home testers available to help them manage their levels. The condition is not well known and is poorly understood by doctors. However, thanks to contributions from people like you, and the work we have been doing to raise awareness, understanding of HPTH is steadily improving and the new parathyroid hormone trial offers real hope for the future, though we have a long way to go yet. HPTH UK has worked entirely voluntarily since 2005 to raise awareness about this condition among the medical profession and to provide support and information to patients through our website, online forums, telephone helpline and our expert team of consultant endocrinologists around the UK. We keep going through donations and fundraising, so any support you can offer will be hugely appreciated - thank you!" Contact: Liz Glenister.

A fantastic opportunity has just arisen for a partner/sponsor to be involved with the Isle of Wight Walking Festival, which is the largest in the UK. The festival's Title sponsor has now gone through business transformation, and as their strategy has changed they will no longer be supporting events, which includes the Isle of Wight Walking Festival - leaving open this exciting opportunity. The festival has won the BBC Countryfile Magazine Readers Award for the best Walking Festival, and would be the perfect opportunity for a sponsor/partner as it fits in nicely with the idea of reducing carbon footprints and also with healthy lifestyles, playing a role in helping people lead healthier lives by offering healthier product choices and encouraging consumers to lead active lives. The festival is looking for Title, Gold, Silver and Bronze sponsors and also for product and clothing sponsors or contra deals. It has been featured on BBC Countryfile and on numerous other TV programmes, with many radio interviews both locally and all over the country. "We have become quite infamous for our Speed Dating Walks, and to date have had three weddings, and possibly a fourth one on the horizon! We have also introduced into the programme an evening at the theatre which has proved really popular, and to date we have had Ben Fogle, Alan Hinkes and Janet Street-Porter, and next year we have Brian Blessed (which will be a complete sell out). We have increased the programme of walks from 39 to over three hundred, and it has developed into a Walking Festival which offers walks for all ages and abilities, and fits well into the healthy initiative. We look forward to hearing from you soon". Contact: Elaine Cesar, Events Officer. Address: Isle of Wight Council, 5th Floor, County Hall, Newport, Isle of Wight PO30 1UD. Tel.: 07970 009909. E-mail:

36 year-old Lee Hadwin from north Wales has been described by the Edinburgh Sleep Clinic as unique. With no training, no talent and no inclination in waking life to be an artist, Lee draws and sketches portraits, figures and landscapes in his sleep. Sleep-drawing since the age of four, it wasn't until he was sixteen and staying over at a friend's house that his nocturnal talents as an artist began to emerge. He recalls: "The next morning my friend's mother found drawings all over the walls in the kitchen, but we had been drinking that night so we put it down to that". In his late 'teens and early 'twenties, whilst still living at home, Lee began to draw or scribble on walls, tables, clothes, discarded newspapers - with pens, crayons and coal - anything he could get his hands on. Now, he is prepared and has his sketch books and materials scattered around his flat, which he shares with his partner Clint. Even he admits, at the start, his work wasn't much to look at; but as the years have passed, the drawings have become more detailed, more profound. Today, with interest from galleries around the world, Lee has discovered a global demand for his work. "People ask me all the time", he says, "what it is like; but I can't really answer that because I don't feel it's my work as I don't recall doing it in the first place. You should see my reports from school: I was appalling at art and couldn't draw at all". Lee has had a regular supply of offers from TV, radio and magazines as well as some bizzare ideas from different companies around the world. He is now looking for a major sponsor who can help to exploit his talents to the full, for mutual benefit. "We have many ideas to share". Contact: Lee Hadwin.

Ospreys in the Community is a not-for-profit foundation that was granted charitable status in November 2016, one year after it was formally launched at the Liberty Stadium, Swansea. Although OitC shares a strong relationship with Ospreys Rugby, and forms a key part of the club's long-term business strategy, it operates on an entirely independent basis to the professional rugby organisation, Wales' leading and most successful club. Working in conjunction with commercial partners, public sector bodies and third sector agencies to generate financial support and resources, the aim of OitC is to create a vibrant and sustainable foundation that utilises the undoubted power of the Ospreys brand, and players, in a positive fashion, to harness social good and make an impact in communities. OitC has already created a wide range of strategic partnerships enabling the creation and activation of innovative programmes that will be contained within four strategic themes: Education, Health, Sport and Inclusion. These partnerships, which include international, national and local businesses, education and health authorities, and local and national government departments, enabled OitC to engage with 17,000 people in its first year. OitC’s community engagement activities include    Creating and delivering a groundbreaking educational programme aimed at primary school children, focusing on literacy, numeracy and digital competencies, with a clear focus on complimenting the existing school curriculum. More than 3,000 children a year are now engaging with the programme, which is completely free for participating schools     TACKLE, a project aimed at 14-16 year olds in Communities First areas combining action-packed rugby sessions with education pathways and mentoring sessions with the aim of helping improve self-confidence, school attainment and employability skills among hard to reach teenagers    Facilitating rugby camps and festivals for juniors and youths of both genders, as well as development days at community rugby clubs across south Wales to encourage active young people    Development and delivery of both an adult and youth wheelchair rugby teams    A senior womens rugby team and new Rugby Cluster centres for girls teams from Under 9s through to Under 15s. Having worked with over 17,000 children, adults and families in its first year, OitC requires sponsorship to support growth plans to work with a further 20,000 individuals this year. An ideal opportunity for a company looking to sponsor a wide range of objectives and keen to support deprived communities, OitC can offer a premium programme of national and international brand exposure, marketing opportunities including access to world-class international players as well as the opportunity to connect directly with the target audience through its database of around 20,000 local families. Ospreys enjoys a solid social media following with an average engagement level of 200k per month, which will be another key platform for promoting partnerships.

Contact for updated information. The RCNi has officially announced that sponsorship of the 2018 RCNi Nurse Awards is now open. Heralded as the most prestigious awards in the industry, the RCNi Nurse Awards celebrate the very best of nursing care and will launch in December and culminate in a star-studded awards ceremony on July 4th, 2018.

Rachel Armitage, Managing Director at RCNi, said: "With the responsibilities of nurses increasing year on year in the face of budget and resource cuts, now is the time to really celebrate and increase awareness of the unsung nurses who are making a real difference in patient care. These incredible awards wouldn't be possible without the help of our sponsors and, with more exposure on offer than ever before, we hope to have even more brands on board for 2018. This is a fantastic opportunity for the many brands that want to talk to the nursing demographic and support the work they do. Michael Henry, Healthcare Director at Superdrug, said: "Sponsoring the RCNi Community Nurse Awards gives us an ideal opportunity to engage and interact with nurses, raise the profile of the service we provide and become an employer of choice for nurses in the community in one of our Superdrug clinics". There are a variety of sponsorship packages on offer, from headline sponsorship through to category sponsorship, such as Child Health, Mental Health Nursing and Patient's Choice. "Category sponsorship starts from £12,500 for joint sponsorship and £20,000 for sole sponsorship, but please do get in touch to hear about further opportunities.

Rubicon Cares offers free specialist trauma counselling to both adults and children (aged 10+) who have been affected by any crime (reported or unreported). "We are organic to Kent and Medway. We offer a telephone helpline for individuals and professionals and use rooms across Kent to ensure our service is accessible to all. We also offer counselling in many different languages. Historically victims have been ignored: with services and funding being centred more on the perpetrators, many have been left to cope alone, particularly after the court proceedings have ended. This is especially harmful as trauma symptoms often take months or even years to manifest - by which time any support they were receiving has long since ended. We are passionate about supporting those affected by crime, but this can be difficult in the current funding climate and we often work hand-to-mouth, relying on the good will of volunteers and fundraisers. We are receiving an ever-increasing number of referrals and would greatly appreciate any sponsorship support. Please contact us to discuss opportunities". Contact: Natasha Singh, Clinical Manager.

The Suffolk Care Awards 2018 recognise exemplary care practice. They highlight the important and crucial job that high-quality carers and innovative care providers do, day-in and day-out. The organisers are seeking sponsorship for the ten category awards, and also for the event evening, with packages ranging from £500 to £3,000. There are ten categories which recognise excellent care practice - they include innovative dementia care, end of life care, inspiring leaders and managers, food and drink, and a special recognition award for a carer or care company nominated by an individual. The winners' evening takes place in October. For an idea of how the evening works, click to view a video on Vimeo at "Since it was launched in 2016, the Suffolk Care Awards has grown to become an important event and key date in the calendar for the county's health and social care workforce. Those who have won say the awards make them feel valued for the work they are doing, looking after and caring for others. Those who get through to the Final receive recognition for their achievement. In an industry which often faces criticism and bad press, these awards are about recognising the - often unsung - heroes who are dedicated to their profession and are passionate about innovating and improving people's lives. We believe the awards lead by example and help encourage other care providers to improve and innovate. Each year the awards have brought to light amazing examples of caring and care practice. The winners' evening is a great opportunity for carers and care organisations to come together to network and share great examples of care practice. Winning the awards, and having their stories told in the media, helps shine a light on fantastic care provision in the county. The awards represent an opportunity for businesses and organisations with a connection to the care sector to build a brand association with this successful county-wide initiative. They are run by The Suffolk Brokerage, an independent, not-for-profit organisation dedicated to raising care standards, and The Suffolk Association of Independent Care Providers, an organisation for independent or voluntary care providers".

Annual event
The Foundation's vision is to enable young people from a variety of backgrounds to use sports as a means of development and to build confidence, to improve health and to further their educational opportunities. The Foundation was set up in November 2007 as The Vaughan Sports Foundation in partnership with the Cardinal Vaughan Memorial School, an inner London comprehensive. The Foundation is based in north Kensington, recognised as an area of social deprivation. In the borough itself, 46% of children do not have English as their first language. The trustees acknowledge that participation in sport can be one of the major factors in breaking down barriers to inclusion for children. Participation in sport is also known to have a positive impact on academic performance, as recognised by Ofsted. There is also a need to address the growing prevalence of obesity in young children. If present trends continue, by 2020 one in three adults, one in five boys and one in three girls will be clinically obese. Such sporting opportunities can provide solutions to the problem of health, education and social development and enable the local youth to participate in society as mature and responsible adults. The Foundation sets out to extend provision of extra-curricular courses and activities for young people. Participants will be coached in a range of sports, fitness training and leadership skills. They have established a varied programme of sporting activities for young people during the school holidays, run in partnership with governing bodies such as the RFU and FA and other sporting institutions. The Foundation also intends to provide opportunities to participants to acquire coaching qualifications themselves so that they gain the confidence and skills needed to organise and supervise sports activities and competition in the local communities. It is hoping to add rowing and fencing to the list of options. Involvement in sports, particularly within a structured environment, is a fun and constructive way for young people to use their spare time, find new friends and obtain new skills. By taking part, young people will acquire a sense of achievement and self esteem - and realise that they can set goals and challenges and reach them. The Foundation's ambition is that all young people who benefit from its activities will raise their aspirations so that sport and healthy activities become part of the fabric of their lives.

BEMDA (Black and Ethnic Minority Diabetes Association) aims to improve the quality of life and wellbeing of people living with diabetes, because this chronic, long-term and progressive disease is now epidemic, with serious implications for individuals and society. Most deaths and diabetes-related complications occur in the economically-productive age group. Being diagnosed with diabetes is very traumatic; taking insulin increases the burden. BEMDA's principal activities are      interactive workshops (the organisation's main area of work) for awareness of diabetes, inculcating the need for mutual support among young people to reduce the prevalent diabetes-related stigma and bullying     random sampling and selection of participating schools and clubs to verify perceptions of diabetes     raising awareness of the potential dangers of manipulating prescribed insulin doses to remain slim and socially acceptable, whilst raising awareness that other options to achieve a desirable slim figure are available without jeopardising health     setting up a young people's vibrant, interactive website and learning materials to update their knowledge of diabetes, especially the prevention of complications     sessions with teachers to ensure that an enabling, clean and discreet environment is available for pupils to take injections and test blood glucose levels frequently     raising knowledge of diabetes among residents, especially young people, meaning taking steps to prevent unnecessary loss of limbs, early or sudden death and empowering people to take responsibility for their condition through effective self-management.

The project will be dedicated to relieving distress and the burden of daily living with diabetes (Type 1, Type 2 and Gestational Diabetes)

Aims and Objectives of the Organisation

     To promote and protect the physical and mental health of people with diabetes, especially those from black and ethnic minority (BME) communities, through the provision of support, education, practical advice and through undertaking research in the subject of diabetes with the dissemination of any useful results.

Odyssey is an organisation which enhances the quality of life for people with cancer through programmes of adventure, based mainly in the outdoors. Using the stimulation of uncertainty and surprise, Odyssey takes participants on a five day journey aimed at combating the psychological and emotional devastation caused by their illness. By supporting people to overcome appropriate challenges (some physical, others creative or artistic), Odyssey helps people rebuild their confidence and regain their zest for life. Odyssey was founded in 1994 by consultant oncologist Dr. Howard Smedley, who saw a gap in the provision of support at the point where people are leaving treatment. Since then Odyssey has consistently tried to run a minimum of three courses a year in Kent and, more recently, to run courses in Wales, the West Midlands and Scotland. With skills and knowledge acquired over seventeen years, Odyssey believes its body of experience to be unrivalled. The increasing success of cancer treatments has meant that many people are surviving cancer and returning to normal life, often after a prolonged interlude of treatment. Others are terminally ill, but not physically incapacitated; and a third group comprises those who have to live through a long period of uncertainty before knowing the outcome. A fundamental need for all three groups is to maximise the quality of their lives. Many forms of support are offered through treatment centres, but typically they are introspective in approach. Odyssey is about active engagement and frequently provides the stimulus and confidence that people need to re-engage with life. For example, it's not uncommon, following an Odyssey course, for people to return to work after a long period away or to take up a new pastime. For others it helps them find positivity, enjoyment and peace during the closing part of their lives. Contact: Hugo Iffla. Address: Suilven, Marconi Lane, Tywyn LL36 9HN. Tel.: 01654 710225. E-mail:

The Virtual Doctors is a charity which provides a free telemedicine service, utilising mobile phone and internet technology, for Clinical Officers located in rural and remote areas of Zambia. "Our hand-held devices offer remote connection with our volunteer medical professionals in the UK, using our bespoke telemedicine software. The Clinical Officers upload case files, select an area of specialism in a dropdown bar, which the selected UK medical professional can review, and subsequently respond offering diagnostic advice. Clinical Officers are trained professionals but are not as qualified as doctors. Some clinics have huge catchment areas and people must travel long distances to reach them, only to be referred on to a hospital even further away. Our service is helping the Clinical Officers to learn and have the confidence to treat patients on site locally rather than having to refer to distant hospitals. The service is economically scalable, tried and tested. We have expansion plans to expand our reach beyond the current twenty health clinics and two hospitals in Zambia - our goal is to be delivering the service into 100 sites in rural Zambia and we will have introduced a trial into another sub-Saharan country by the end of 2018. We rely upon the generosity of others for 100% of our funding and your support would enable us to expand our reach into new areas and help more patients. We are keen to hear from individuals and organisations who would be interested in helping us to fund this expansion. It costs approximately £1,000 to set up and run the service for twelve months in each rural health centre. If you or your company would like to get involved, please contact". Contact: Huw Jones.
