Free advertising campaign on offer for Irish charities

Setanta Sports Television is offering a free advertising campaign to three Irish charities this Christmas.

Recognising that raising those much-needed funds and generating awareness is all the more difficult this year, Setanta Sports is inviting charities from around the country to get in touch.

Three charities will then be selected in a draw and given a month-long campaign on the Setanta Ireland channel, to the value of €10,000 per campaign.

The prize will include the production of an advert, which will then be televised during the top live fixtures in the Setanta Sports schedule this Christmas and New Year, including Barclays Premier League football and Magners League rugby.

To enter the draw charities should send their name, contact details and a paragraph detailing the nature of the proposed campaign to charity@setanta.com.

The closing date for receipt of entries is Friday 11th December and winners will be notified the following week.
