SMEs targeted for Olympics fundraising

By BFN News | 02:17 PM | Monday 26 July, 2010

Small and medium-sized firms are being urged to back the UK's quest for medals at the 2012 London Olympics. A new fundraising programme - designed exclusively for SMEs - has been launched to help meet the £25m fundraising target set for Team 2012. 'Our Team 2012' will raise funds by creating a unique opportunity for smaller businesses to share in the excitement at the coming of the London Games while providing a catalogue of business benefits. Entrepreneur Duncan Bannatyne - who has volunteered his time to champion the cause as a Team 2012 ambassador - described the programme as a "once in a life time chance to be part of making history". The programme provides SMEs with opportunities for staff engagement as they join athletes on their inspiring journey, access to hospitality events at prestigious venues including the House of Lords and tickets to major sporting events across the UK. SMEs will also enjoy networking opportunities in their own region, seminars, insight and training. At a cost of under £10,000 per annum for the two year programme it is designed to be accessible.
