We can help with real life stories, facts and figures, spokespeople and images.

Some sample case studies that show the motivation of organisers and the impact they have:

Event organiser: It’s all down to your encouragement when I was doubting, that it is up and running!

Event organiser: Many guests said that this was the first Christmas for years that they were not alone, loved the dinner, they made new friends and arranged to meet up in the New Year.
