Our Top Tips on Making Money!

Bouncy castle hire for fundraisers in East Sussex.

We have been doing this for many years and Charity & Fundraisers, are a vital part of our business and are very popular all year round. Over the years we have worked with a large variety of fundraisers big and small.

We get inundated with enquiries every day with people organising fundraisers, and we are here to give you expert advice and love to help, but we can't give it away for free! As much we would like to.

But what we do offer is our year's experience from 1998, When you are planning an event making sure you receive a professional service, immaculate equipment and peace of mind. But to do this, we have to charge for the product you are interested in booking. And we understand that being a fundraiser it may be challenging to find funds to pay.

Here our top tips!

Frist, we recommend finding a sponsor. Many businesses are happy to help to fund a good cause, and it is good for marketing. If you can get a sponsor, it will make booking very easy, but don't fret if you can't find one.

Our Bouncy Castle will draw a crowd.

It is a proven formula that any inflatables will bring attention to any event and when it comes to raising money for a good cause we all know the routine, you charge users. So let's crunch some numbers.

For all public charity events we recommend our 18 x 18 Bouncy Castles.

Bouncy Castle Hire Cost - £140

Price for Bounce for 5 Minutes - £2

This Unit Holds 13 Users at 1Metre (Break down all users on each product page.)

13 x £2 = £26 Every 5 Minutes | Over a hour = £312

Only in your first hour, you would have raised £172 of profit. But remember you have your chosen unit for 6 hours,

but we know the average charity event may run 12 pm - 4 pm

This is Huge

So on a standard fundraiser, you will raise on average = £1248 - £140 (Hire Charge) = £1108 !!

We always recommend this method because it works! Instead of using a percentage scheme, Where you would raise less money. Please note these are just estimates and it's all down to you to promote your event to make sure you have people attending to donate money.

Here are a few tips to help you market your event

  • Create a Facebook page and share with family, friends and Facebook groups. Also, share on Twitter and as many social platforms as you can.
  • Make a poster and advertise in local business, e.g., News Agencies.
  • Create flyers and hand out at schools and local businesses.
  • Get an advert in your local newspaper.

These are just a some of the possible marketing possibilities. You can get as imaginative as you want with marketing the more artistic, the better.
