Looking for fundraising ideas? Have a Shopping Evening with Artichoke
A lot of you know that as well as ‘real’ shops we have a pop up shop that we take to charity events throughout East Anglia, helping to raise tens of thousands each year for local & national charities BUT did you know that we also hold charity events in the shops too?
If you would like to raise some money for your favourite charity, arrange an event for your local WI or another ladies group or even have a night out with the girls we are happy to open our shops in the evening for you.
What you get
We will provide your guests with a glass of prosecco & some nibbles upon arrival & then you will have the evening to chat & browse our current collection at your leisure. At the end of the evening we will donate 10% of sales to your chosen charity, or if you would prefer, your guests will receive a 10% discount on any purchases that they make during the evening.
If you are raising money for charity we are happy for you to sell tickets to the event & keep the proceeds as well as holding a raffle. All we ask is that there are ten or more of you. We can however accommodate up to sixty people in one evening
Feedback from a happy customer
Here are some photos from our Christmas Shopping Evening in Swaffham which took place a couple of weeks ago & raised just over £600 for Pentney Village Hall.
The lovely comments below are from Janis who organised the evening
‘thank you to you and your staff for the successful festive evening shop.
We all had a great evening and I received lots of positive feedback. Several people had never been into the shop but assured me that they were pleased with their purchases and would be returning.
The fizz and nibbles helped the evening flow and were much appreciated. The money raised will be used to carry out refurbishment works to our hall that was built in the 1930’s , your help is much appreciated.’
