As part of the recent £39k Heritage Lottery Fund grant to document and record the history of Cornish Pilot Gig rowing, the CPGA is now seeking match-funding to deliver the project.
Support sought from businesses and individuals
We already have commitment from several organisations towards the target, but are now looking for help in raising the shortfall over the next 18 months. This can come from businesses or individuals.
Businesses that support the project will be acknowledged in general press and media coverage. This which may include the possibility of mentions in any radio or TV promotion, features on the GigRower and CPGA websites and their other communication, or social media, channels.
We are also seeking lead sponsors, who will benefit from high profile branding opportunities at public events and online published media related to the project.
We are committed to deliver this project. If you or your business can help (or have any suggested contacts) or wish to privately become involved, please contact Shane Sullivan on the following to discuss via 07880 785437 or [email protected]
