ORGANISERS of the great Brentford May Fayre are appealing for sponsorship after previous sources cut their funding.
The fayre, which will be in its third year, previously brought in crowds of over 4,000 people and features free activities, live music and an array of food, however may now be in jeopardy because of the economic climate.
Organisers of the event scheduled for Saturday May 21, The Brentford Toy Library, Feltham and Whitton Lions Club and the Parish of Brentford, are now seeking corporate sponsorship to ensure the event goes ahead.
Sally Malit, Manager of Brentford toy Library said: “The idea behind the event is to promote community cohesion and social participation. In addition, awareness of voluntary sector schemes and small local businesses will be raised.
“But most importantly it is to offer and essentially free fun day out to the residents of Brentford and surrounding areas. This event really puts Brentford on the map and it would be a real shame if it could not take place this year.
“We are looking for corporate sponsorship and it would be a fantastic opportunity for a local business to promote themselves as this event really does draw in the crowds.”
The event at St Paul's Recreation Ground, in Albany Road will have an interactive animal sanctuary, entertainment from Indian dance groups and live music from The Jetsonics and Bang To Rights. There will also be nostalgic family activities including a coconut shy, skittles and a bouncy castle.
If you would like to help sponsor the event or would like to take part free of charge then please contact Sally Malit at firstname.lastname@example.org or n 0203 176 4620.
