Sponsors & advertisers

The Lions and all our helpers give our time freely, but the costs of organising the Fun Run increase every year. Our aim is that sponsorship, in kind or otherwise, and programme advertising, will cover all the costs of staging the Fun Run, enabling us to assure runners that every pound of entry fee and sponsorship they raise will go to the nominated charities

Fun Run programme

Around Easter each year we deliver 7,000 copies of the Fun Run programme free of charge to homes throughout Knowle & Dorridge. Advertising rates start from as little as £70. Copy is required by mid February. Interested?


We thank our sponsors for so generously supporting our community event. It’s never too late. There are always further sponsorship opportunities available from as little as £100, or in kind, allowing your company to gain a high profile being seen to be associated with one of Solihull’s most successful charity fundraising events.
