When planning your charity fundraising event there are a few things you will want to consider such as initial costs, the theme (if any), and most importantly the right location to hold it at. Not only is the area you choose important, but the building you choose is a vital choice as well.
If you are considering planning a charity fundraising event but find yourself feeling rather daunted by the process and planning involved, there are a number of fantastic charity recruitment consultants in the UK that can help you to get the ball rolling on planning your fundraising occasion. Below are a few of some of London’s hottest spots to consider for hosting your charity fundraising event.
One Canada Square
One Canada Square is currently the tallest building in London’s Canary Wharf Business District. This can be an excellent location to hold your fundraising event not only due to its massive size, but also because charity events generally tend to do well in business districts due to the level of foot traffic these types of areas see. This 50 floor high monster houses heaps of offices that are packed full of potential fundraising event attendees to help in supporting the charity you will be representing.
Formerly referred to as the NatWest Tower, Tower 42 standing at 183 metres (or 600 feet) tall is currently the tallest structure in all of London and the 7th largest in the entire UK, making this an ideal location to host a fundraising event with larger than life potential.
30 St. Mary Axe (The Gherkin)
Built in 2003, the 30 ST Mary Axe building or as the locals affectionately call it “The Gherkin” is 40 floors of beautifully designed and maintained floor plans that house a huge number of various offices. Not only is this 180 metre high building home to heaps of occupied offices, its modern and stylish interior and exterior design will offer a sophisticated ambience to your fundraising event. This massive sized building offers endless attendee potential and is located in a highly foot trafficked area to provide excellent local advertising opportunities.
If you have decided that you are going to have a “go big or go home” attitude when it comes to your fundraising plans then The Shard will make a more than suitable location candidate. The Shard (AKA The Shard of Glass) is currently the tallest building in the entire European Union, and is the second largest freestanding structure in all of the UK. This crowd drawing and tastefully elegant location will offer your charity fundraising event limitless potential with its over 70 habitable floors, breath-taking viewing galleries, and an awe inspiring open air observation deck. Not to mention its impressive selection of restaurants and bars, and of course the lavish Shangri-La Hotel to provide luxurious lodging for your fundraising events attendees, organisers, or guest speakers (if applicable).
Choosing a show stopping location for your charity event is sure to draw in the crowds, so explore the best buildings near you to really make a splash with your soiree.
