Charity Fundraising

3 May 2018

At the Mercure Maidstone Great Danes hotel, we know how challenging it can be to organise a charity event, it’s certainly no easy task. Clare from the events team at Mercure Maidstone Great Danes Hotel is organising her own charity event to raise funds for the charity Cardiac Risk in the Young, a cause very close to her heart. Having already raised a significant amount for this charity, her aim is to raise £5,000 for a screening programme to help detect cardiac issues in those aged 14 – 35 years.

Clare’s chosen event for a fundraiser is a quiz night, where people can come along, have a fun and enjoyable evening with friends, whilst raising money for this amazing charity. To ensure as many attendees as possible, tickets are just £5.00, people can bring their own nibbles, and drinks can be purchased from the bar at the hotel.

If you’re looking for a venue to raise money for your charity event, the Mercure Maidstone Great Danes Hotel is the ideal choice, offering a variety of options which can help raise funds for your good cause.

You might be considering:

A dinner and disco event

Enjoy delicious food and dance the night away to great sounds from the DJ

 Black tie gala event

A truly memorable evening, guests can dress up for the occasion. Enjoy a three, four or even five course meal.

Race night or casino night

A great evening, with ‘fun’ money; which of your guests will be a winner?

Afternoon tea

For a relaxing afternoon event guests can enjoy delicious treats whilst catching up with friends.

Themed party

From a colour theme, food theme, to country theme, or even clothing theme, a fun way to raise funds.

Outdoor space

Ideal for a family fun day, bouncy castle, or even a barbecue

Quiz night

Like Clare, you might want to opt for an informal fun evening where friends can test their knowledge.

Of course, at any event you can also hold a raffle to help raise funds for your worthy cause.
