Become a business sponsor

The Keswick to Barrow (K2B) & Coniston to Barrow (C2B) Walks depend on business sponsorship to enable the event to take place and cover operating costs. Unavoidable costs include vehicle hire, marquees, fuel, stationery, security, signage, communications, and refreshments for walkers. There are NO costs deducted for committee expenses or time, which are all given voluntarily. Business sponsorship may be given as a financial donation, or in the form of services or materials to support the event. Business sponsors are recognised in event marketing on walk day, on the K2B website (listing on Business Sponsors page & logo shown randomly on the right-hand side-panel on every page), and at the charity awards night in Autumn. If you wish to become associated with the event, please contact us to discuss opportunities. Email: sponsor@keswick2barrow.co.uk
