Sure is to sponsor the prizes for the Best Band category in the Douglas Carnival.
The telecommunications provider becomes the first business to agree a prize category sponsorship deal for the carnival which takes place on Saturday July 19th.
Town centre manager Michelle O’Malley said: ‘We’re delighted to be working with Sure once again, as in recent years they’ve generously supported a number of our other town centre events. There’s a tremendous amount of local musical talent in the Island and the carnival will be a fantastic opportunity for bands to perform in front of what will undoubtedly be large and very enthusiastic audiences. And with first, second and third place cash prizes up for grabs thanks to Sure, that should strike a chord with many aspiring musicians.’
Sure’s marketing and PR manager, Sarah Jarvis said: ‘From the moment we knew Douglas Carnival was to be revived we were keen to become involved. As a business at the heart of the town centre we have welcomed the projects led by Douglas Development Partnership that are bringing a renewed sense of fun to the main retail area and stimulating increased footfall. With the Partnership’s proven track record and our commitment to supporting the local community we’re pleased to be sponsoring Douglas Carnival’s Best Band category and making our contribution to what looks set to be a great day for Douglas and the Isle of Man.’
The Best Band category is one of a number of Douglas Carnival sponsorship opportunities. For more details contact Michelle O’Malley, MOMalley@douglas.gov.im, 696304 or visit www.douglascarnival.im
