The last quarter of the year is always our busiest from an event perspective and the FR teams across the globe have been putting in the extra effort as always delivering sometimes up to 6 events over a weekend.
Once again the passion and dedication from my FR team has shone through. So a big thank you to all the FR team for their hard work and commitment to each and every cause.
At this time of year it always good to reflect on the past 12 months and to focus on our achievements as well as understand and learn from our experiences.
The FR team form an integral part of our innovation as they deliver the services at client events and often have great ideas and feedback from our clients on where and how we could maximize fundraising profits. This has become a fundamental part of FR culture and empowers the team to make positive change and continuously improve our business and service.
Our clients see us an extension of their events teams, with a unified vision of what they want to achieve and the fundraising goals they have, so continuous improvement is essential for their success too.
#interactivebid – mobile and online bidding has become a much bigger part of our product offering and the last 12 months has been spent further developing new ideas, developing the software and delivering interactive bid silent auctions for our clients in large scale environments.
Celebrating 10 years in Fundraising
Over 10 years ago, whilst working in luxury hospitality and sporting events, I had a vision to support disadvantaged people through the sale of auction items at these type of events. Hence, the idea for my company, FR Events, was born. My vision for the company was to become the fundraising partner of charities worldwide and focus on delivering incredible auction services, with luxury experiences, unique memorabilia and exclusive artwork whilst supporting charities.
This year FR Events has celebrated 10 years in fundraising and I am so pleased to announce that to date we have raised almost £40 million for good causes worldwide.
I would like to thank all our staff, clients, bidders and suppliers. We couldn’t be the number one provider of silent auctions without you.
Seasons Greeting to all and happy holidays
