Quintessentially Foundation: The Fayre of St James

On the 1st December, Quintessentially Foundation kicked off the festive season with a virtual screening of their 9th annual Fayre of St James’ Christmas Carol Concert.

Hosted by Stephen Fry and other celebrity guests, this was a magical evening of carols, performances, festive readings and Christmas cheer - all in aid of The Felix Project and The Childhood Trust.

Working with GiveStar was a joy, the team are incredibly helpful and keen to make the user experience as easy as possible.”

Harriet Quigley, Events Manager

Combat Stress: Festival of Lessons and Carols for Christmas

On 16th December, we were delighted to stream Combat Stress’ Festival of Lessons and Carols for Christmas. Filmed inside the Wren Chapel at the beautiful Royal Hospital Chelsea, this was a fantastic evening filled with classic carols and  readings from esteemed guests including TV Presenter Lorraine Kelly, Sergeant Major Glenn Haughton OBE, Combat Stress Chairman Giles Peel.

It really was more than I ever imagined for our first virtual event, I am super proud and the feedback has been utterly amazing.”

Sue Thornton, Senior Events Officer

Project Harar: Gala Film Premier

Project Harar hosted a virtual Gala Film Premier, where audiences were invited to watch a video showing the phenomenal work they do providing cleft care in Ethiopia - with breakout rooms on stand-by for the afterparty!

This was a really enjoyable evening that provided a great opportunity for Project Harar to raise a glass to their late founder, Jonathan Crown. 

"We were so impressed by the services provided by GiveStar for our virtual event. We had some great feedback from our guests and we look forward to using the platform again!'"

Rose Edwards, Fundraising and Communications officer

The Prince's Foundation: Christmas Carol Concert

On 15th December, the Prince's Foundation brought us together for an evening of carols and festive music performed by the renowned choir of St Paul’s Knightsbridge in their Christmas Carol Concert.

With a special message from the President of The Prince’s Foundation, HRH The Prince of Wales and other celebrity guests, this was a really engaging event that helped raise funds for the fantastic work they do building community across the UK.

We found TapSimple’s new virtual events platform extremely intuitive and user-friendly, with a high level of brand customisation"
