Sponsorship Opportunities

Profile your company at Beeston’s biggest annual charity event!

Since embarking on their fantastic Oxjam journey in 2011, the local Oxjam team has built up the festival from nothing to a very successful community event of which Beeston is very proud.

The Oxjam Beeston track record:

  • We consistently rank in the top 3 Oxjam fundraisers nationally - last year we broke our own record to become, for the second time, the largest Oxjam festival with an incredible total of £22,000 raised.
  • Since we began in 2011 we have raised over £80,000 for Oxfam – our target for 2018 is to smash through the £100,000 barrier!
  • We have a high profile nationally and have won awards for our work.
  • Several hundred artists have performed, for free, at Oxjam Beeston since 2011 including chart topping Saint Raymond and The Voice finalist Lia White.
  • Each year our events are attended by a combined audience of over 5,000 people.
  • Local businesses, from takeaways to pubs, report that the Takeover is their busiest day of the year.
  • Footfall is also boosted by the large number of volunteers who contribute to this community event.
  • We have a wide ranging marketing strategy encompassing the Nottingham Post, the BBC and other local news media with a Social Media reach of c20,000.
  • We have strong support from local Councillors and MP with good partnership links with Broxtowe Borough Council, University of Nottingham, local businesses, schools, churches and other community groups.

Over to you…

Oxjam is now firmly established in Beeston’s cultural and community calendars.

However, in addition to an enthusiastic and skilled team of volunteers, a wealth of talented local performers, and the widespread support of the community, we need your sponsorship to make this, not only as good as, but even better than ever before!

In return you will be able to reach literally thousands of people of all ages and backgrounds: residents of Beeston, the surrounding areas and further afield, including students (some from overseas). It’s a very mixed audience given the diversity of events which we put on.

We are looking for sponsorship in the form of:

  • Help with covering costs.
  • Donations to boost our fundraising total.
  • Gifts in kind – services or goods.

We are offering different sponsorship packages to suit different budgets – see the table below for details
