The Cateran Yomp – ABF The Soldiers’ Charity’s ultimate challenge!
13th June, 2017
Slingshot has been selected by the Army’s national charity to provide valuation and long-term commercial direction for The Cateran Yomp.
Entering its 7th year, The Cateran Yomp is an epic trek where teams of 3-6 people take on 54 miles in 24 hours across the rugged terrain of the Scottish wilderness, pushing both mind and body to the limit. The Yomp brings together unsung heroes from the UK and overseas, with participants ranging from elite athletes to first timers, the young and the old in a unique environment fostering terrific camaraderie.
The event has raised over £2.4m and has been sponsored by the likes of Sainsburys, Alliance Trust, HSBC, Thomson Reuters, PWC and notable others since its inception in 2011.
Bernie Critchley, Events Manager – Bespoke Events & Sponsorship states:
“It was really useful getting Slingshot Sponsorship to do a valuation on the Cateran Yomp, and give us advice on sponsorship packages, so we knew that we were pitching it at the right level. The proposal that they designed for us was excellent, and was perfect to send to our prospects. The team were very friendly, professional and easy to work with throughout the whole process.”
Sam Howell, Head of New Business, Slingshot Sponsorship said:
“We’re delighted to provide sponsorship support to such an inspiring charity and a team of passionate individuals to help them make the most of the commercial potential of The Cateran Yomp”
The Cateran Yomp takes place this weekend, 10 -11 June 2017.
