Sponsor Sauerkrautathon 2018
In addition to the contributions made by Riverford Organic Farmers , Yeo Valley and Symprove, our main sponsors, we still need to raise a further £1500 to enhance the educational programme we are running on the day and to enable us to ensure that we meet the stringent Guinness World Record verification requirements. We want to ensure that everyone visiting the Sauerkrautathon Marquee can take away useful information about gut health, about fermented foods and about how the two fit together. And after all the effort so many people have already put in to making Sauerkrautathon a reality, we want to ensure that we have meticulously gathered all the evidence required for our World Record Attempt to be valid.
We will acknowledge our main sponsors in a wide variety of ways, including in our advance publicity and in the marquee on the day. Please contact us for more details on the benefits to your organisation of sponsoring Sauerkrautathon.
Your sponsorship will enable us to:
- Pay for videoing and photographing the event from start to finish and for the independent verifiers we need to meet the Guinness World Record requirements.
- Produce a ‘How to make Sauerkraut’ leaflet containing recipes and information about gut health, so that people can take the important message behind Sauerkrautathon home with them.
- Provide other equipment and facilities that we need for the success of the event that we cannot source in the form of donations.
Thanks to the incredible generosity of a number of gut health and real food professionals, we have already put together an incredible Educational Talks Programme, which will run all day. Our speakers will be giving fun and highly relevant presentations about gut health, vegetables and fermented foods. There will also be plenty of fermented foods to taste.
We are delighted to confirm that our speakers on the day include Guy Watson of Riverford Organic Farmers, Tim Spector, professor of Genetic Epidemiology and Director of the TwinsUK Registry at Kings College, London and director of the British Gut Project, respected fermented foods teachers and authors Naomi Devlin and Dearbhla Reynolds, neuroscientist, Marcus Boehme and his colleague Katie Guzzetta from the Cryan Lab in Cork, Alana Macfarlane Kempner, DJ and co-founder of The Gut Stuff, Bob Andrew from Riverford and experienced GP - Andrew Morrice - all talking about gut health from their own professional perspectives. More speakers are in the pipeline - watch this space!
Through Sauerkrautathon 2018, we aim to create a real fizz for sauerkraut and fermented foods to get the public appreciating that fermenting is no foodie fad, but a cheap and simple way to support health. We aim to gain as much media coverage for our public health message and for our sponsors as possible.
