Our best ideas for hosting the perfect charity event

Our best ideas for hosting the perfect charity event

29 July 2021

There are many charities raising money for very worthwhile causes; are you a charity looking for venue hire to host an event? Whatever you may be looking for from a venue, from an informal quiz night, to a black tie gala dinner there are many ways to raise money for your charity. It may be that you’re an organisation with charitable status and are looking for a venue to host an awards ceremony.

Whatever event you may be planning, you’ll want flexibility to suit your charity and your event, with facilities to match.

Looking for ideas for events? Here are a few suggestions:

Quiz night – a fun way for friends to get together and test their knowledge, whilst raising money for a good cause.

Dinner and disco – a great way for friends to have an enjoyable evening whilst enjoying delicious food.

Black tie gala event – an excuse to get dressed up, and attend an event in style. Why not consider having an after dinner speaker or comedian to make your event memorable?

Race night – a night at the ‘races’ to get everyone excited! Place your bets with fun money.

Afternoon tea – if an afternoon event is more suited, why not consider afternoon tea? Delicious tea and treats to be enjoyed by everyone.

Themed event – why not add an element of fun to an evening event by theming it either by era e.g. 80’s event, or even by country, with maybe a Mexican theme? The world is your oyster.

Of course, you can complete any event with an auction or raffle to raise much needed funds for your charity.

At the Mercure Inverness Hotel we’ve helped many charities over the years. Located in the heart of Inverness the hotel is in the perfect location, is easily accessible, and has parking available.
