Children with Cancer’s Annual Ball
Supported by GiveStar
Ready to start fundraising!
GiveStar supporting Children with Cancer UK
In November 2019, GiveStar supported Children With Cancer UK at their fantastic Annual Ball at Grosvenor House, London. The Ball is their largest fundraising night of the year, with over 800 guests in attendance for an evening of entertainment and fundraising.
Fifty volunteers used GiveStar devices to take quick and easy donations during a great selection of fundraising activities.
The simple tools used to make this event a success
Applicable to donations and pledges, CWC raised £2,476 amount extra with the ability to collect Gift Aid.
Give A Little Extra
The option for the donor to cover platform fees, 76% of donors covered the platform fee, saving the charity £1,946.
Rapid Donation Feature
Used for quickfire payments for raffle and heads & tails tickets, as well as the Treasure Trees.
Used to retain donor details in a GDPR compliant way. Also, to denote lot numbers and label prizes during the Grand Auction.
The finance team was able to track the amount raised live from the balcony! In addition to saving a huge amount of paperwork, this enabled them to push any slower moving fundraising activities, as well as motivate volunteers on the night.
“TapSimple has transformed the way that we take payments at our fundraising events. We first introduced the technology at our annual Ball last November and were able to substantially reduce the amount of paperwork and processing our staff had to do on the night.”
