At the simplest level: we envisage charities hosting hospitality areas – to which they will sell tickets: to include entry of course. Obviously they can do much more than this: provide lunch, a comfortable resting place, teas, run a game, a bag-store, a creche? This works well and gives everyone a slice of the cake. Obviously we will make sure you are not all trying to do the same thing!
NATURALLY ANY COMPANY WISHING TO SPONSOR ANY PART OF THE EVENT IS URGED TO CONTACT FAWLEY HILL.
If you put Fawley Hill into a search engine you will find pictures, videos and information galore: not all of it accurate but the pics show Fawley Hill and train and the May 2013 event.
