Friends of Littleborough Stations


We are offering a number of sponsorship opportunities

Did you know that between them Littleborough and Smithy Bridge Stations account for over half a million passenger journeys? [Office of Rail and Road Statistics] Would you like us to promote your business to our passengers? If so, we have a number of sponsorship opportunities for local businesses to support the Friends of Littleborough Stations (FoLSs) in making Littleborough and Smithy Bridge stations better places to travel from.

Sponsorship opportunities

While as volunteers we give our time for free, we need a  minimum of £250 a year to keep the group going. This sum covers things like the cost of room hire for meetings – we want our meetings to be open to the public – newsletters, and a contribution towards our annual Santa Special. We also need money to plant and maintain the flower tubs on the platforms at Littleborough.

Sponsorship costs for 12 months

Sponsorship benefits include

If you would like to sponsor specific activities or make a regular contribution, please use the Contacts Form, to tell us what form of sponsorship you are offering,and we will get back to you.
