With 2011 upon us, London City Airport is assessing how it can work even closer with its suppliers and better engage in the local community. We are proud of our ongoing community support and our charity of choice for 2011 will once again be Richard House Children’s Hospice, London’s first‐ever hospice, located on the doorstep of the airport, which offers quality care and respite for life‐limited children. Their core purpose is to support families with children and young people who have life‐threatening conditions or require complex healthcare needs, on their journey through life to death. Creating a positive experience is essential so that families may enjoy memories that remain with them forever. Richard House needs £1.3million each year, just to keep its doors open.
As we commence plans for the 2011 Fun Day, which raises funds for our chosen charity, we hope you will help us to raise money for this worthwhile cause. Our donation of from the last Fun Day would not have been possible without the generous support of our suppliers, and I am writing to appeal to you to help us. I urge you to promote your company CSR policy by becoming a sponsor of our 2011 event and use the opportunity to maximise your exposure.
On 2 July, 2011 we will see an audience of over 20,000 visitors converge on the Royals Business Park (opposite the LCY runway), to enjoy a day of entertainment and fun. I can confirm that an air show will delight the crowds and compliment a variety of stalls and sideshows. With the 2012 Olympic Games looming, our focus will be sport in the community and you can expect youth engagement across many activities. Sponsorship opportunities are available, and details can be viewed in the attached sponsorship document. I do hope you will help us to help others desperate for support.
If you have any questions regarding the Fun Day location or sponsorship packages, please contact Manjeet
Randhawa on or or me.
I hope you are able to work with us on this important community project and look forward to hearing from you and
would be really grateful if you could respond by Friday 4 February.
