Our Sponsors

Tyne and Wear Metro

Headline Partner

We are delighted to once again be supporting St Oswald’s Hospice. As well as being for a very good cause, Great North Snowdogs took thousands of people to places they had never before, or rarely, visited. Elmer’s Great North Parade is set to do the same – it will be great for the towns and city centres that we serve.

First Class supply

Learning Programme Partner

It’s very important to First Class Supply to support our local community. Our Learning Programme Partner sponsorship of Elmer’s Great North Parade is an exciting opportunity to contribute to our local schools, their pupils and families, as well as enabling us to support St Oswald’s in their incredible work.

Elmer's Great North Parade fits brilliantly with Better as it matches what we try to do across our leisure centres – getting families out and about, trying new experiences and having fun together. We’re aiming to add more to your day out at Eldon Leisure Centre, where our Elmer will be located, by offering discounts on activities that you can enjoy during your visit.

This fun and interactive event is the perfect fund raising opportunity for such a worthy cause. It's a fantastic way to bring the northern community together, and with DFDS's strong northern affiliations through our ferry crossings from Newcastle, we are proud to be part of the Great North Parade.
