Sponsorship and sampling

Promote your product or service to our members through sponsorship and sampling.


The WI brand is well-known and highly respected throughout the country. WI members demand the highest standards and quality and campaign on important issues – from climate change and healthy eating to human trafficking and the importance of cervical screening.

We are keen to hear from appropriate companies who would benefit from associating with the WI brand.

Sponsorship allows you to get information across to members. To learn more about sponsorship or to send a proposal, please call our Advertising Manager, Andrew Lawston, on 020 7371 9300 and dial (ext. 222) or use the contact form.


The sampling route allows you to put your product directly into members’ hands.

There are 2,000 Enterprise Contacts (out of 6,354 WIs) who volunteer to accept boxes samples, transport them to meetings and hand them out to fellow members.

This is a fantastic opportunity for a new product launch or to just treat members. After all who doesn't love a free gift?

As part of the package, we include one advertorial within the members' magazine WI Life. We do recommend that you promote your free gifts before they are actually sent because members have been known to base their meetings around them!

You'll be in good company if you decide to go down this route. Members have already enjoyed gifts such as Dove soap bars, Hellmann's Mayonnaise picnic hampers, McVities Boaster biscuits and products from Febreeze, L'Oreal, Fenjal, Nivea and Bausch & Lomb. The list is extensive and members love it!

Your level of involvement can vary according to the type of product or service you provide. If an advert isn't right for you but product sampling is, we can tailor our options to suit your budget.
