Slingshot Sponsorship Renews Partnership with Mencap for 2012 12th January, 2012

Slingshot Sponsorship secure contract renewal with Mencap for 2012

Mencap, the leading UK based charity helping people with a learning disability, has re-appointed Slingshot Sponsorship to continue to develop and implement a new sponsorship strategy across their high-profile events.  After an extremely successful year together, the renewal will see a continuation of Slingshot’s work to increase awareness as well as increase the commercial value for the charity through creation of sponsorship opportunities.

Slingshot Sponsorship will assist Mencap with consulting and implementation for upcoming events including April Fools – a stand-up comedy night at the HMV Hammersmith Apollo; the Little Noise Sessions music festival – an acoustic and intimate, 6-night music event curated by Jo Wiley; the fantastic swimming event Mencap Mile held at the Olympic venue; and many more.

Leo Visconti, Head of Corporate Development at Mencap:

We’ve had a great first year working with Slingshot, who have delivered some excellent sponsorship deals for us in 2011. We are now looking forward to bigger and better for 2012 and some delivering amazing events with Slingshot’s help.

Jackie Fast, Managing Director of Slingshot Sponsorship:

We are pleased to be working with Mencap again in 2012.  The Little Noise Sessions and April Fools are two events that we are always confident of attracting high profile sponsors for.  We’ve really enjoyed working with all the staff at Mencap and look forward to helping them promote their brilliant cause in the year ahead.
