Charity shopping also deserves generous feel good points. Not only are you helping to support worthwhile causes, you’re keeping unwanted possessions out of landfills. Each area of London has it’s specialty. Some neighbourhoods are a dead cert for pristine vintage and designer labels, others for collectible records and magazines, or fabrics and haberdashery and some areas are just great for grabbing real steals and bargains. Your guide, Sanna, knows where to look. She’s spent years hunting for props and wardrobe for photo-shoots and adverts, and she’s now leading monthly insider expeditions to all the hot spots you can cram into a morning or afternoon.

In August 2014, if you opened up your Facebook feed, there was one thing that no-one could escape. The Ice Bucket Challenge. $115M raised, 2.4 million videos created and one question on every fundraiser’s mind: “how do I create my own Ice Bucket Challenge?” At Chuffed.org, we’ve spent the last four years running thousands of online fundraising campaigns in 27 countries around the world. We can distil down what the difference is between a crowdfunding campaign that succeeds and one that fails. The answer: the successful campaigns follow a particular process. In this workshop, we’ll take you through that process and how to apply it to your non-profit. —————————————————————————————————————— The Workshop Agenda The 3-hour intensive workshop covers the 5 key ingredients that occur in our most successful campaigns. Audience targeting: Reach the biggest audience possible by learning what drives different types of donors to support you. Event copy: Get everyone to share your campaign by crafting the perfect campaign pitch. Set the right fundraising target: Discover how much you can raise- and what you can do to raise even more. Make it exciting to donate: Learn how to build early momentum in your campaign using perks, matched giving and other techniques that make your audience excited to donate. Campaign planning: Reach a huge audience with the perfect campaign strategy. During the campaign, you’ll get the opportunity to pitch your idea and get feedback from your colleagues in the room. You’ll also get a chance to network with the other participants. Following the workshop, all workshop participants who start a campaign will be provided with a free, one on one mentoring session and are invited to join our community of fundraisers for ongoing campaign support. Tickets Tickets are free, however we do require a deposit of £10 . We require this deposit as this helps to confirm the amount of attendees on the day. This deposit will be refunded on attendance to the event.  Please email [email protected] if you have any questions about this. About the Speaker Carl Francis, Engagement and Support Manager at Chuffed.org Carl wants to see a world where everybody strives to make a difference in society. He believes that there’s room to integrate social action directly into our culture, whilst also making it fun! After completing a Media Studies degree, he started searching for ways to see how he could help others with his newfound skills. He has spent over 3 years working in the charity sector before joining Chuffed, where he delivers mentoring sessions and day-to-day support to crowdfunders. Carl also jointly runs a YouTube channel / Facebook Page called “Caruzmatic”, which aims to show people how they can get involved in social action. Can’t make it?

Dreamflight is a UK charity that changes young lives through taking children with a serious illness or disability, without their parents, on the holiday of a lifetime to Orlando, Florida. Established in 1987 and operating annually since, Dreamflight believes that fun and joy are just as important as medical research and equipment - especially for children who perhaps can't wait long enough for the breakthrough they need or whose illnesses and treatments have brought pain, distress and disruption to their lives. In 2018 we were lucky enough to have 2 Children go from our local community and amazingly both of them have connections to Herston Caravan & Campsite. Only 192 Children from the whole of the UK were lucky enough to go so the odds on 2 of ours getting chosen were quite astronomical. The journey was amazing, not only for the kids but for the friends and family back in the UK, all following their fun daily online and please believe they really did have some!!!! From the moment that they landed, greeted by the Florida Highway Patrol who escorted them to their hotel. This was followed by fun all through the holiday, meeting Spacemen, Superheroes, more rides than we could list, parties and to top it off swimming with dolphins. Chaperoned by an army of volunteer Doctors, Nurses, Phycologists, and numerous British & American carers, all of whom can’t be thanked enough!!!! As a community we want to put a bit back and have arranged a sponsored charity motorbike ride from the Ace Cafe in London to Herston, stopping at “Loomies Moto Café” on route.  We have the fabulous Blue Print Blues Brothers who have a replica Blues Brother's Car which is going to lead the rally from London to Dorset, we just hope that their Sat Nav works and we would love you to follow. We will all meet at the Ace Cafe London by 10.30 and depart approx 11.30. On route we will stop for lunch at Loomies cafe and then from there to Swanage Dorset.  Sponsorship forms can be downloaded from www.herstonevents.com For those that want to stay with us and party after the ride and for anyone else who wishes to join us for a fun packed weekend celebrating Dreamflight please get your tickets which include a weekends camping. Please join us for a weekend’s fun and celebration with great food entertainment, raffle, loads of laughs and a couple of bevies whilst helping the future Dreamflight kiddies. Weekend Party Tickets are available We already have the "Blueprint Brothers" who are headlining Saturday and as luck would have it at the same time we have our Blues Brothers fancy dress theme. Plenty of more great acts and entertainment to be confirmed. To keep up to date with the event visit our website - www.herstonevents.com If you’re unable to attend but still wish to donate to this fantastic cause please visit our Just Giving page

Join us for the Premier Property Christmas Charity Ball! A chance for you to network with fantastic people, hear what people have achieved over the past year, and be in an enjoyable and relaxed environment. At this black tie event, you will meet some of the most respected people in property and business industry. All profits from this event will go to a charity, that will be finalised by a poll.  There will also be a silent auction, and chances for you to win an award as part of the award ceremony.  Your ticket includes: - A beautifully prepared 3 course meal- A complimentary glass of wine with your meal- A night filled with entertainment - Dancing all night- A chance for you to win an Award. Register your place now. What happened at the Premier Property Christmas Charity Ball 2018? You’ve helped 107 homeless people this Christmas because of this. Thank you.   This night marked the 3rd annual Premier Property Christmas Charity Ball (it SOLD OUT), and with over 120+ active property investors, property developers and property professionals in attendance it was a night to remember.   This year Premier Property partnered with Lolas Homeless, a community group who have been tackling the housing crisis in Newham, a borough where 1 in 25 people are currently homeless.   Next year, The Premier Property Christmas Charity Ball 2019 is going to be even BIGGER; more people, more successes, and more money raised for a fantastic cause.   We have already confirmed a date for you, Saturday 7th December 2019, and you can register your tickets right now. So go ahead, and book your place right now è   The Premier Property Christmas Ball 2018 took place in a beautiful 5 Star Venue, right in the heart of Central London. People were greeted with a glass of complimentary wine/sparkling/soft drink of their choice, followed by a portrait picture taken by a professional photographer.   We then had food served to our tables, prepared by an amazing chef, 3 courses of delicious, mouth-watering, and flavour packed cuisine, catered for all different types of dietary requirements.   Between the courses there were speeches. Founder of Premier Property and active property investor and developer Kam Dovedi gave a moving founders speech. Talking about challenges in the UK Property market, and how we have overcome them in the Premier Property community, talking about why we are at the Premier Property Christmas Charity Ball 2018, and how it is a night for you to enjoy and celebrate your successes. Kam raised his glass for a toast at the end of his speech, and watching over 120 people raise their glasses to join him, was a truly beautiful and touching experience.   Kam Dovedi then gave awards out to people in the Premier Property community who achieved fantastic results in 2018, 6 awards and 6 worthy winners. People from as young as 23 years old, working 14-16 hours a day, and successfully buying property using the systems shared at Premier Property, to a property professional who has broken the norm of just making property investors richer from the services they provide (like surveyors, architects, and solicitors do) and are now buying property for themselves too (by using none of their own money), to a dynamic couple who since joining Premier Property are now doing a project worth over £3 Million!. This is why people love to be in the Premier Property environment, there is so much enthusiasm, so many successes and factual results, and there is so much inspiration which drives people in the Premier Property community forward.   Following Kam, we then had a raffle, and our sponsors really went all out with their gifts. In fact, one sponsor sent in a case of champagne worth almost £600.   Following the 3 fine-dining courses, we all travelled to the dance floor for our B-I-G group photo, in hindsight, moving over 120 people to the dance floor… well you can guess took a bit of time. But once we were all there, we took a M-A-S-S-I-V-E group photo, to which the DJ then started his evening.   Now, seeing property people let their hair down, and really enjoy themselves on the dance floor is an amazing sight. It just shows you how relaxed people feel in the Premier Property community.   A fantastic evening, filled with enjoyment for all who attended, going to a noble cause, and we look forward to making it even bigger and better for the Premier Property Christmas Charity Ball 2019.   Save the date; Saturday 7th December, you can register your place right now here and we look forward to welcoming you to the Premier Property Christmas Charity Ball 2019
