Charity events are unique and challenging to pull off. The goal of these events is often to raise funds, either by asking for donations or selling items to generate proceeds for charity.
Not only do you have to design and produce an engaging event, you must also pull off an event that entices attendees to donate. Event guests have already given up their time and other resources to be there, so they must be truly motivated if you want them to donate to your cause.
With over 15 years of experience in the events management industry in London and further afield, Purple Patch knows what it takes to pull off a successful charity event. We’ve hosted events, conferences, meetings, expos, virtual events, and experiences of all kinds for businesses and organisations of every size. We love tackling a challenge because our team has the ingenuity and expertise in event planning to stage a successful and innovative event.
We believe in transparent advice from the start. Events cost time and money. Our primary goal is ensuring that none of your resources are wasted, by pulling off a sensational charity event.
If you’ve ever managed a large charity event, then you know things rarely go as planned. Circumstances change, problems come up – and you’re too busy running an event and meeting with guests to handle the logistics. That’s where we come in.
The Purple Patch team is by your side throughout the charity event planning process. From the first conception to post-event clean up, we don’t overlook any details. Although some incidents are unpredictable, we’ve been managing events for a long time. We know what the most common problems are and we have a sense for when things are about to go wrong. Having worked with companies and organisations of all sizes across industries, we can anticipate your event’s problems.
By sticking with you throughout the entire event production, we can ease some of the planning burden resting on your shoulders. We just need your goals, audience, timelines, and budgets, and we can handle the rest. Once we know what your vision for the event is, we can create a bespoke event design, which will help you visualise your event before it takes place. From there, our experts bring your vision into reality.
Our portfolio continues to grow with every passing year, organising dozens of events for small and large organisations. Businesses trust in the expertise and ability of our event planners to find a solution that doesn’t only provide what they need, but delivers beyond expectation. It’s why we’ve managed key events for retail giants such as Sainsbury’s, targeting specific audiences in specialist markets.
After spending so many years in the events industry we’ve established longstanding relationships with suppliers and venues. Like our customers, they know and trust in our ability to put together a professional and well-run corporate event. In turn, this gives us access to preferential booking rates, dates and the best possible deals, making the most of your available budget.
At Purple Patch we take a fresh approach that sets us apart from other corporate events companies. This is your event and not ours – which is why we take the time to listen and deliver everything you expect. Our clients invest in us because we invest in them – becoming an invaluable partner that will never let you down when you need us the most.
A truly successful corporate event can be judged on how effortless it looks without any of the attendees seeing the amount of hard work behind the scenes. The best events run like well-oiled machines and it’s an art we’ve mastered at Purple Patch Events.
Corporate event planning extends beyond booking a venue and sending out invites to attendees. From the moment your audience step foot into your event, until the moment they leave, we help you create an unforgettable experience. This includes everything from stage management and lighting, to decoration, photography, filmography and staff available on the night.
We’re able to take on every aspect of the event, ensuring you only ever have a single point of contact. This prevents you from having to talk to several suppliers, departments and service providers in the run up to your event, reducing your workload and freeing up precious time to concentrate on other important tasks.
“A truly stunning event, yesterday. I could see that it really helped the Agrimetrics team realise what a significant endeavour they are involved in and I think a lot of the attendees were blown out of the water by the opening video – I’m sure many of them won’t have expected, or indeed, seen, such a professional and stall-setting start to an ‘Agri-Tech’ event. Same time next year?”
“The quality of the end result, is a credit to you and your team. It was a great success – we now need twice as many people to deal with the potential leads”
"Thank you for all your efforts to make this customer event a success. Your choice of restaurant and menu was great. Hope we have more chances to work in future. And best of luck for your future events”
“Bloody brilliant day! The audience were captivated. You’re the best. Thanks”
“If we’d done it ourselves it would’ve looked homemade. Thanks for not letting us do that”
“Huge thanks to you and your team for a FANTASTIC series of events this week, topped off (!) nicely, with today’s extravaganza. It was certainly a challenging environment for you all but you delivered it, as always, seamlessly with your usual professional, unflappable style. The space looked fantastic and I have had amazing feedback from everyone who attended. The caterers were also brilliant and looked after our guests really well.”
