As part of their 2nd year assignment, a team of five Bournemouth University Ba (Hons) Event Management students, otherwise known as Sorted Events, are hosting the BU Easter Funfair at Talbot Campus, Bournemouth University on 3rd April 2014. This event plans to attain student sign-ups for the locally based charity Autism Wessex and raise funds for their services.
Autism Wessex are a charity based in Christchurch, Dorset and was founded in 1968 by parents of children with Autism. The charity currently offers three main areas of support: Portfield School for education, residential and respite care, Community Wessex for social care services and the Advocacy and Advice services.
The aim of the Easter Funfair is to raise £250 specifically for Autism Wessex’s advocacy and advice giving service, as well as encourage students to sign up for the charity’s volunteering scheme. To achieve these targets, the range of activities and stalls at the event will all cost £1 to play, with each participation contributing towards that £250 mark. The raffle for this event will also be a main contributor, with a range of prizes to be offered to those winning tickets. Sponsors are providing these prizes, ranging from free meals at various local restaurants to fun day outings for groups of people. A photo competition is also looking to take place with a prize for the winner. This will also help to attain more sign-ups for the charity.
Sorted events have estimated, calculated thoroughly and expects all targets to be achieved. With only 1 week left until the event day, final preparations and confirmations have begun and the event looks to be a success. “We are Sorted Events and we like to ensure that everything is Sorted.” The only challenge left is hoping the weather stays great!
