Show's friendlier face of sponsorship continues

19th July 2016

LEEK United Building Society is to continue as the main sponsor of Leek & District Show.

The Society has extended its current support of the area’s premier agricultural event until 2022.

This year would have marked the end of the original three-year sponsorship agreed between ‘the friendlier face of finance’ and the Show’s organisers in 2014.

But the new deal further strengthens Leek United’s links with the Show – and helps to guarantee its future into the next decade.

President and Show Director Derek Torr said: “We have a terrific rapport with Leek United and are delighted that the Society is continuing its sponsorship.

“To have the backing of the town’s principal building society means a lot, and we have the certainty of knowing that the Show’s future is secure until at least 2022.”

Each year, Leek & District Show attracts thousands of visitors young and old to its showground venue on the Birchall Playing Fields, on the outskirts of Leek town centre.

This year’s event will take place on Saturday, 30th July, and there is a fun-packed programme of entertainment planned in addition to the traditional agricultural and horticultural competitions.

Leek United Chief Executive Kevin Wilson said: “The local community is at the very heart of everything we do at Leek United, and nothing typifies that more than the Leek Show.

“We look forward to continuing working with Derek and his committee over the next five years, bringing families and businesses together in our heartland.”
