Could you be a Sussex Traditions Patron or Sponsor?

Patrons are specially recognized individuals who make a substantial contribution to our work.
Sponsors are specially recognized organisations making a substantial contribution to our work.

Contributions can be financial donations and/or ‘in-kind’ giving of support services and partnership working.

We would love to hear from you if you are interested in having a conversation about becoming this special kind of supporter.

Could you help us with funds to grow our digital store of Sussex traditions, and to engage more widely with schools and the community? Can we give you special recognition to reward your support as a Sponsor or Patron?

We are keen to work with Sponsors and Patrons to meet aims together. Sussex Traditions explores themes such as traditional Food and Drink, Sports and Games, Music and Dance, Crafts, Stories and Legends, all from the local life of our county’s past. We aim to enhance and enrich community life in Sussex, by connecting people with their local traditions. By working with Sussex Traditions you might also enrich the lives of people in your area.
