Forbes Solicitors has signed up as a major sponsor to Preston Guild 2012.
The legal services firm, which has offices across the North West including at the junction of the city's Lancaster Road and Ringway, will back the Guild's giant event TVs, that will be known as the Forbes Solicitors Big Screens.
The screens will be prominent across the city and at major festivals and events during Guild 2012, as well as at 'pop-up' events across Preston.
Winston Hood, managing partner at Forbes' Preston office, said the firm was delighted to be supporting the Guild with a substantial sponsorship package.
"Forbes is already actively involved in a wide range of sporting and community projects in the Preston area and the Guild is a perfect opportunity to extend this commitment. It is fantastic for us to be involved in such an historic event," said Winston, who is Preston born-and-bred and was also appointed a Guild Burgess at the last Guild in 1992.
Councillor Peter Rankin, Leader of Preston City Council, added: "Forbes is a well-known local company which is renowned for its community involvement, so we are delighted to have its support for the Guild 2012 celebrations.
"We are gathering increasing support from the area's businesses to help create the biggest and best Guild yet, but there is still plenty of opportunity for companies to do their bit and get involved. We have a wide variety of sponsorship packages to suit all manner of needs and our team will be happy to discuss any individual requirements."
