I haven’t done it personally, yet, I hope to do it in time for term 4 of school.

One of my mates sponsored the local basketball team, he ran a fruit and veg shop, mainly because most of the parents of the kids went shopping at the shopping centre his shop was located. So as a familiar face, parents were more obliged to shop at his shop to show their gratitude.

I think it can work, but you need to be strategic about it and really think what the return on investment is going to be. It doesn’t always have to be monetary, I think it’s great to just show that you are supporting the local community, you could put up a picture of the team in your store etc
