‘Friends of the pole’ 2014
Support your Maypole!
‘Friends of the pole’ was launched in 2008 as a novel way for people to support the Maypole Trust (whilst at the same time receiving a little local recognition for doing so). The scheme has proved to be so popular that we’ve decided to run it again for 2014. Whether you live in the village, are local to the area, or simply grew up here and have fond memories of the Maypole Festival, please don’t be shy… sign up today and show us what your Maypole means to you!
What you get
When you become a ‘friend of the pole’:-
- You will receive a unique personalised ‘friends of the pole’ certificate.
- Your name(s) will appear in the 2014 Maypole Festival programme.
- Your name(s) will be listed on the Maypole website.
- Your name(s) will appear on a list which will be framed and displayed in the Barwick in Elmet pubs.
How it works
1. Let us know the names of ‘friends’ you would like added to the list.
2. Make a donation of £5 or more for each ‘friend’.
3. We will do the rest!
- Anyone can be a ‘friend’… yourself, a partner, family member, or colleague etc.
- Each friend’s name can be no longer than 50 characters in total.
- The minimum donation is £5 per ‘friend’ (there is no maximum!).
- You can donate by post or on-line with a PayPal account.
- Certificates will be posted to any address in the UK, or hand delivered locally.
- If you have any queries, please use the contact form to notify us.
N.B. Any names submitted after midday on the 30th April 2014 will receive a certificate, and will appear on the website, but (because of design and print lead times) we cannot guarantee these will feature in the Maypole Festival programme and/or framed pub list .
Individual, group and family names are all acceptable as a ‘friend’ (see examples below)… however we would welcome a larger donation for group or family names.
- J. Smith
- John Smith
- Mr Smith
- Mr J. Smith
- John and Julie Smith
- John, Julie, and Jack Smith
- Mr & Mrs J Smith
