Using Our "It's A Knockouts" For Charity & Fundraising Events
One of our It's A Knockout shows is a great way for a charity to raise money for their cause whilst giving the participants a fun time in the process.
Not only does it generate money and future contacts, but it gives great publicity and local interest for a cause. This gives great PR & networking opportunities. Many charities and organisations have used our knockouts time and time again for this purpose.
Although some might say that the present financial situation is a reason for holding back on such an event, it is worth noting that the last Children In Need raised and Comic Relief events raised over 30% more than their previous events. Therefore, with the right planning and publicity, charity events, and charity "It’s A Knockout's" are a great and worthwhile event to hold. For those who are looking for the first time at this type of event, a table is shown here to help show the various ways that an event can generate money.
All the team members once given sponsorship forms raise money by approaching friends etc. This could be used as the entrance money.
To help our contracted customers, in the password protected part of our website there are sample GIFT-AID sponsorship forms, Press Releases, poster clipart and charity ideas sheets.
We can also give extra points to the teams according to how much they've raised. So the more money they raise, the more points they start with. This usually entices the teams to raise more than the entry amount.
Remember also that you can place an advert on our Events Page as well to publicise your event and enlist teams.
IMPORTANT - Please read our "Small Print" page.
