We are excited to announce the Blue Light Weekend, a family-friendly event filled with fun and activities for all ages and abilities. Scheduled to take place across two days in August 2023, the weekend promises to be an unforgettable celebration of our coast and emergency services.
The first pilot event, held in August 2022, was a big success, thanks to our partnership with Active Withernsea and the remarkable efforts of our local volunteer organising committee. Now, building on the wave of enthusiasm from our community, we're looking forward to making this event an annual fixture in Withernsea.
One of its most exciting aspects is the revival of some beloved local traditions, such as the raft race and runaround, which are sure to create lasting memories.
However, to bring this vision to life, we need your help.
Making a difference together
We are appealing to local businesses and individuals who wish to support this unique event through sponsorship. Your contribution would significantly help us organise an event that not only boosts the community spirit but also promotes Withernsea, putting it firmly on the map as a vibrant, inclusive and dynamic town.
We extend our heartfelt thanks to those who have already pledged their support for this year's event. Your generosity will undoubtedly play a crucial role in creating a lasting legacy within our community.
Tailored sponsorship opportunities
We understand that every sponsor is unique, with different interests and capacities to contribute. Therefore, we offer flexible, bespoke sponsorship packages. Whether you wish to be actively involved in the event or prefer a more hands-off approach, we are here to collaborate and ensure that your sponsorship experience is rewarding.
Kristina Richardson, our Blue Light Partnership & Development Lead, is on hand to answer any questions and guide you through the sponsorship process. She will work closely with you to create a package that aligns with your business or personal goals.
To discuss sponsorship opportunities, please do not hesitate to contact Kristina on 07395 798328.
Let's create a legacy
As we commemorate our fellow committee member, local hero, family and friend, Steve Medcalf, let's join forces to create an event that honours his memory and celebrates our shared community spirit.
Together, we can achieve great things and make Blue Light Weekend a staple event in Withernsea's yearly calendar. We look forward to your support and partnership.
