Children with Cancer’s Annual Ball
In November 2019, TapSimple 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 TapSimple devices to take quick and easy donations during a great selection of fundraising activities, including:
- Treasure Trees
- Heads & Tails
- Grand Auction
- Car Raffles
“Our volunteers found the devices easy to use and our guests loved the fact that they were able to pay for fundraising games and auction prizes instantly on their cards.”
Stephanie Revell, Special Events Manager
Children With Cancer
Children With Cancer took full advantage of all available TapSimple features. Particularly beneficial were:
Rapid Donation feature
Used for quickfire payments for raffle and heads & tails tickets, as well as the Treasure Trees.
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.
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.
