Please Note: We are currently following Government guidelines related to community events and Covid-19, so watch this space for more info!
As a charity, events held in the community are very important to us as they help in the support of our organisation in a multitude of ways.
Events are a way for us to connect with the local community and promote the range of work that we do. While the events we hold are intended to be fun and enjoyable, we also try our best to make them highly informative. We like to think that these events provide members of our community with information that they may never have discovered otherwise.
Our events raise awareness of domestic abuse and other sensitive topics that get people talking. Domestic abuse is often a topic that people shy away from but we aim to create room for conversation and hopefully accountability too. Holding events also aids in raising our profile, so that when people need our help, they know exactly where to find us.
We are interested in being a part of a diverse range of events, anything from market days to Oktoberfest! We have been known to participate in a diverse range of fundraising events – everything from market days, music concerts to Oktoberfest and race days!
The Challenge Of Covid-19
Big or small, all our community events make a difference, but due to COVID-19, many of our community fundraising opportunities have vanished overnight. If you think you can help, through any sort of creative idea or if you can think of a way to raise funds safely while keeping to social distancing measures we would truly love to hear from you! Trying to plan events amidst this pandemic is very challenging and it involves a lot of ‘out of the box’ thinking. We need all the help we can get from the innovative minds in our community and beyond!

Fundraising Through Hosting Events
Community events mean we can raise funds through entrance fees, donations and profits from selling various items.
Fundraising through community events allows us to cover the things that grants, and Trust funding does not. Charities encounter many miscellaneous expenses and unexpected costs throughout the year. We use the funds raised by our events to buy a wide range of items such as emergency mobiles for a victims at risk, birthday presents for a child in our safe house or outings during school holidays to help our children just be children again. The list goes on and on!
You can rest assured that all money raised in events goes to good use, whether it is used to support clients directly or indirectly it all goes towards helping some of the most vulnerable people in our local community and is much appreciated by all at Dash Charity.
