Why Sponsor Oxted Carnival?
Are you a local business or organisation that could contribute to helping Oxted Carnival making the most that it can for the local charities it supports? If so, it's possible that by sponsoring Oxted Carnival you would not only be supporting the local charities that benefit from the day, but also be reaching over 21,500 individuals and potential customers of your own.
This year our chosen charity is the One World Group, Oxted, who started off as an inter-Church Group, subsequently becoming secular, to appeal to people of all faiths and political leanings. Local churches provide many of the members and together with local schools and other community groups, continue to contribute greatly to the success of the Group. The One World Group has supported over 140 deserving projects across 33 countries with most requests for funding coming from direct links through their Members and Friends. Funding is primarily targeted at education, healthcare, medical support, orphanages and business / agricultural projects that allow communities to survive and grow.
Carnival Program: Since the carnivals inception over 50 years ago, there has been a supporting program that includes information and advertising of local businesses and organisations. Circa 1500 programs are taken to print and distributed across Oxted to the community members and visiting passers-by.
Website and Social Media: In 2014 we launched a new Oxted Carnival website which provides site visitors with details around the carnival itself. We are also active across Facebook and Twitter, with followers from Oxted's community, as well as visitors from further afield. The sites are constantly being updated with information and while we don't offer advertising space on the website, we do credit our top 3 sponsors on the main page, so your logo could be viewed frequently with every information update.
On the day: Each year the Oxted Carnival attracts on average 2500 visitors (even more when the sun shines) to watch the procession through the streets and enjoy the stalls and entertainment that follow on Master Park. Having your company take part or display its details on site will ensure you're seen as a carnival sponsor and a participating, community business.
