Fundraising Charity Events

Hiring 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 and builds many “bridges” for the future. Many charities and organisations have used our knockouts time and time again for this purpose.

With the right planning and publicity, charity events, and charity “It’s A Knockouts” 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 below to help show the various ways that an event can generate money.

Fundraising Ideas

All the team members can be given sponsorship forms to help raise money by approaching friends etc. As an example, each team member approaches 25 friends and gets a £2 sponsorship from each (= £50), times by ten people in a team = £500 for the team!

One of the charities that used us in 2015 raised over £35,000 profit from their charity “It’s A Knockout” event!

In the password part of our website there are many resources to help charities including… a sample GIFT-AID sponsorship form, sample Press Releases, poster clip-art and high resolution games images, Facebook friendly poster images and charity fundraising ideas sheets.

We can also give extra points to the teams according to how much they’ve raised for you. 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.

Prices and Discounts

We also have a list of dates where we can discount our prices because we are traveling near an area on a “day off”. If you’d like to benefit from one of our discount dates, please click here for the list.
