The van centre, which is based in Fulwood, near Preston, is inviting local sport teams and clubs to stake a claim for support.
Paul Hoinville, head of business at Volkswagen Van Centre Lancashire, said: “The local community is extremely important to us and, as Swansway Garages is a family owned and run business, we’ve made it our company policy to support local sport teams where we can.
“Whether you’re a football, cricket, hockey, netball or rugby club and are looking for sponsorship to help increase the number of children playing sport, then we want to hear from you.
“The money can be used for anything, as long as it benefits the local community and helps encourage new members; this could be anything from a new kit to help with renovating a training facility.
“While we’re hoping to help numerous clubs in the surrounding area, this will depend on the level of support, through our sponsorship scheme, that a team requires.”
To apply for sponsorship go to www.lancashirevwcv.co.uk/
The closing date for entries is 31st January 2014.
Paul added: “We’re very much looking forward to supporting up-and-coming sports groups and hope that these sponsorship opportunities will help raise the profile of the region’s sporting talent.
“One day soon we may find someone who will represent our country and win Olympic gold medals!”
