Become a Sponsor

This page provides details of some of the corporate sponsorship opportunities made available to promote and thank our supporters.

It is our intention to make Barnsley Kilimanjaro Charity Trek a ‘big’ event in 2011 and we will be promoting and publicising our activities in a variety of ways including traditional press releases (including through the Council’s Communications channels), extensive use of social media including Facebook and Twitter (we hope to be live Tweeting from the Trek), four articles in Open Door (Council publication delivered to every household in the borough) and via and our dedicated website at which will be referenced on all our publications and at all of our events. Our site receives an average of 100 visits per day (highest 900 a day, immediately following publication of a news item) and the Council’s site in excess of 2,000 per day.

We will be using training events and other opportunities to maintain a high profile. Examples include our Snowdon in the Snow walk, our mass Yellow Fever Inoculation and our Yorkshire Three Peaks Walk on Good Friday. Individual participants will promote their activities extensively through their own personal and professional networks.

There is considerable opportunity for repeated corporate exposure. To discuss your individual requirements please contact

Please note that sponsorship and support can take the form of much needed goods & services as well as cash donations.

Payments should be by cheque made out to BKCT2011 and posted to;
