Talented local bands to perform on Leaders’ stage at Brighton Marathon
12:08pm Wednesday 14th April 2010
Leaders - the City’s leading letting agent, first established in Brighton 27 years ago - are delighted to be supporting the forthcoming Brighton Marathon with a number of exciting initiatives.
From now until the Marathon, and on the day itself, Leaders will be giving out flags to people who want to show their support to the runners. Each flag will have a unique number which will go into a prize draw to win various prizes. First prize will be £250 for the winner’s favourite charity, plus a luxury Marks & Spencer hamper to enjoy.
On Marathon day itself, Leaders will have a stage at the Old Steine – at the heart of Marathon route - where a number of talented local bands (which include members of Leaders’ own staff) will perform throughout the day. The crowds will be treated to fantastic live music from Your Army, No Sharp Objects and Monkey Sons, plus the winners – to be announced - of a talent competition which is currently being run by Leaders in conjunction with Brighton Institute of Modern Music (B.I.M.M)
Says Leaders’ director Jane Wilkinson: “We are very excited about being a part of Brighton’s first Marathon, and at the same time supporting local talent. As a long-established firm with hundreds of landlords, tenants and employees in Brighton & Hove, we are always keen to make a positive contribution to our local community. We would like to wish everyone taking part in the Marathon the best of luck and look forward to what promises to be a very memorable day.”
If you would like the chance to give £250 from Leaders to your favourite charity, don’t forget to pick up your flag from your local branch, or from the Leaders stage at the Old Steine on the 18th April from 9am.
