POLL: Should Plusnet sponsor the Grimethorpe Colliery Band?

Yorkshire's Grimethorpe Colliery Band, of world renown, are in danger of folding through lack of sponsorship.
Would it be in Plusnet's long term interests to sponsor them?
Poll inspired by jmdlp's post here.

I don't think half price coal for 12 months would be included in any deal Wink but cool it would be and a life saver for the band.
I, of course voted yes.

Yes, I think it's a brilliant idea given their TV advertising.  Smiley

E-flat tuba player votes yes to band aid (which would fit with PN's sticking-plaster logo)  Roll eyes

Would that lead to Plusnet blowing it's own trumpet even more ?

Thanks Chris, and thanks jelv too.
Just thought it might help things along if PN can see the result of a poll of forum members too.

Re: POLL: Should Plusnet sponsor the Grimethorpe Colliery Band?

I voted yes.
I'd like to see PN help a worthy cause.
I would like to add though that if PN do actually consider this, I'd like to see it as a long term arrangement - say a minimum of 5 years OR 2 years with 1 years notice to quit so that the band can still have enough time to find another sponsor.
I need a new signature... i'm bored of the old one!

I think it would be a good idea but, I'm sure the business case has already been discussed and already rejected so it probably won't happen.
Experience; is something you gain, just after you needed it most.

When faced with two choices, simply toss a coin. It works not because it settles the question for you. But because in that brief moment while the coin is in the air. You suddenly know what you are hoping for.

I for one would 10000% prefer the band over anymore BB types in advertising.
But then again they aren't on the TV all the time are they?

No, I don't think it would be in PN's long term interests to sponsor them. It's just so stereotypical.
