Sponsorship Opportunities

The Scottish region will offer a "Ceud Mile Failte" (a hundred thousand welcomes) to friends new and old from across the UK. Housekeepers, local and national associate members will be attendance - along with invited guests to the event. 

In order for this event to be as successful as previous events, we need to raise sponsorship to cover some of the costs to make it accessible to our Housekeepers. We are therefore asking for your assistance whether it be Raffle Prizes or if you could assist us by sponsoring all or part of the below.

  • Photographer
  • Entertainment
  • Pre Dinner Drinks
  • Pre-Dinner canapés
  • Wine Liqueurs
  • Flowers/ table decorations
  • Table Gifts Stationery
  • Items for Goody Bags
  • Raffle prizes
  • Stationery and administration costs

This list is not exhaustive, however we welcome all amounts big or small and all sponsors will be acknowledged at the event, in a dedicated newsletter and via the UKHA website. If you are able to assist with any of the above, please contact either Jo Wilby – Scottish Chair –  or Derek Laing - 

Sponsor your Housekeepers ticket and treat them to a fabulous evening

We are also encouraging all associate companies attending to sponsor a Housekeeper ticket (or two) - whether or not the Housekeeper is a UKHA member. The association is very grateful to those associate members who make it possible for Housekeepers to attend this very special social evening through sponsorship of their ticket.
