A Bronze Show Charity It’s A Knockout

The Bronze Show is an ideal choice for charities to use for a charity fundraising event.

For charity fundraising events, the main object is of course to raise as much money as possible for a cause.

Our Bronze Show ticks many of the boxes for achieving this all in one go.

It’s very colourful and impressive at half the size of a football pitch.
# It has four large running across type inflatable games
# It has some great funny team building games.
# It has the ever-popular funny and visual bubble and dressing up games.
# It lasts about 3 hours (a break can be added in the middle before the wet games so the teams can spend money at any other stalls present).
# Although the starting price covers up to 12 teams taking part, more can be added at a very reasonable cost.

As with all our Knockouts it comes with a lot of extras:

# We have our own PA system so no need to get a sound system or DJ in.
# We supply prizes.
# We have our own generators so we don’t need power.
# We have Risk Assessments and Safety Documents to give peace of mind.

Charity Fundraising

An extra way to get much needed charity income is to invite companies to sponsor each of the games (e.g. £250 each). On the day these companies will get a game named after them, they will also be mentioned (and thanked) by our commentator compere, they can have signs around their game and even help to time keep on it.

A good way for the charity to fill space free is to have a teams village. Each team can be encouraged to bring a gazebo and use it as an HQ for the day. We can even award bonus points to the team with the best dressed gazebo. This means that (at least) one side of the arena will be a line of brightly decorated gazebos for the teams. Team gazebos also means that the teams have somewhere to shelter if it rains, or it is scorching hot (we can wish can’t we?).

Many charities also say to the teams that they will be awarded bonus points for raising over the amount asked to enter. This is a good way to incentivise teams to keep on fund raising for you rather than just the bottom entry fee you will be asking from them.

We get asked by charities “how much do charities normally set as the entrance fee?” This is a hard one. Some have set the entrance fee at a smaller amount such as £250 a team, some at a quite high figure of £1,000 a team. A good line we suggest is something along the idea of “It’s £500 to enter a team, so if there are 10 of you, that’s only £50 a head”.

In the Client Part of our website we have sample sponsorship forms you can use or be inspired by.

Can Charities Really Make Money from a Knockout Challenge?

Can Charities Really Make Money from a Knockout Challenge?

Well, obviously we think they can!

Charities are finding it more and more difficult to raise funds in this difficult economic climate, and it can be heartbreaking to put huge amounts of time, effort and even money for very little return.
