Charity Events

At Cards or Die we are passionate about tackling social isolation and bringing people together with board games. 

 

This year my aim is to offer one free booking per month to a charity, community interest or not for profit company. I'm aiming to raise around £60 per month through subscriptions over on KoFi in order to do this.

If I raise extra I will arrange extra events.

What can you do to help?

Donate. You can make a one-off donation or you can set up a regular payment. (Visit my Ko-Fi page and click on 'membership'.)

If you are a non-profit company interested in tackling social isolation then I would love to chat to you and provide a free board games session. You could book me as part of an ongoing event or we could work together to put on a special event your customers will enjoy. You could use the session for staff training or as a treat for your volunteers.

Spread the word. Tell people who you think might benefit or who are in a position to donate and support this project. 

I recently ran a very successful fundraiser to run Board Games Events at The Welcome In Community Centre (you can check out the 4 events we are running on the Events Page). We raised £840, after paypal fees we had £798.93.

The costs for the events are as follows:

Staff time to prep food on friday            2.5hrs
Staff time in kitchen on day of event     5 hours (includes 1hr before and after event)
Staff time at front of house on day of event 4 hours (includes 1 hr after for clean up)
Staff costs total                                     11.5hrs x £18 (salary and on costs)                                                                                                         = £207
Food                                                                                     = £30 
Room Hire                                                                           = £45
