You should spend about 20 minutes on this task.
A large company in your area has decided to spend a certain amount of money, either to sponsor a local children’s sports team for two years, or to pay for two open-air concerts. It has asked for feedback from the general public.
Write a letter to the company. In your letter:
- describe the benefits of sponsoring the sports team
- summarise the benefits of paying for the concerts
- say how you think the company should spend the money
Write at least 150 words.
You do NOT need to write your own address.
Begin your letter as follows:
Dear Sir or Madam,
Dear Sir or Madam,
I am writing to you regarding sponsoring our children’s sports tennis team. My opinion is that this is the best option to support.
Funding for children’s sports is much more important than holding several free concerts. It is likely that the concerts will give a lot of joy to people. Everyone will be happy. But the financing of concerts in our country is more associated with government support. Therefore, the organizing company in this case always remains in the shade, people don’t pay much attention to the organizer. Furthermore, the concert experience will be forgotten soon, and the effect will be temporary.
In the case of sponsorship of our team you will achieve much greater benefits for society, but also for your company too. We have two very good players. They are 11 and 14 years old and they have rating of 54 and 67 in adult men’s Russian ATP, so they are rated above 20 years old players. In order to achieve a higher rating, they need to practise in tournaments, but their parents don’t have enough money to travel everywhere to the necessary championships. At these tournaments our team can wear t-shirts with your company logo. So, everyone will know about your company and your support.
Your funding will be a great impulse for the development of children’s sports in our region. We can organize a dedicated team with your support and teach talented children, even if their families don’t have enough money.
I believe that spending money on the next generation is the best investment you can make.
