Scunthorpe based Johnstone Insurance have provided Messingham Show with a major sponsorship boost.

The 112th Show on Sunday 4 June will feature Johnstone Insurance sponsor the British Show Jumping arena and grandstand.

 Messingham Show Chairman Trevor Foster said:

“After many years of running Messingham Show we’re delighted Johnstone Insurance has signed up to be our first ever sponsor of the British Show Jumping Arena and grandstand. A local business, committed to the community is a good fit and I hope marks the start of us working together. Sponsorship income is vital to help cover the Show’s running costs and will make a massive difference. As we try to move with the times, it signals a turning point about making the Show more sustainable and widening its appeal for years to come. I would like to welcome Johnstone Insurance on board and wish them every success with their involvement.”

Johnstone Insurance, managing director Chris Harper said:

“Around the area Messingham Show is one of the longest standing events and has a good reputation. For many years there’s been a fantastic effort by volunteers to put on a show. Set up in 1983, Johnstone Insurance is the only locally owned independent insurance broker in Scunthorpe. We’re a local business dealing with local people and really happy to have this opportunity to support a local show. We strongly believe in our business community and advocate dealing locally whenever we can. So it’s fitting we should be involved in some form. Providing sponsorship is a way of putting something back into the local community.”
