If you wish to request sponsorship support from the Mercury the application form must be completed by clicking here.
Sponsorship applications are considered equally, based on the Mercury's sponsorship objectives as outlined here. There is a genuine audited cost to the Mercury for sponsorship support which limits the number of sponsorship's undertaken. Therefore, unfortunately we are not able to assist with every request we receive, even if the request fits within our sponsorship objectives.
Please note: Applications must be received 3 months before the date of your activity or event. Also, it may take up to 4 weeks for your application to be assessed. A response will be sent to you once your application has been evaluated.
