Event Relief is an 11 hour virtual event to raise funds for charities that support mental health. On Tuesday 29 November, event professional Dan Assor will be leading and hosting the online event. On the hour, every hour, running from 8am – 7pm GMT, different companies will run a mixture of fun & informative 45 minute sessions to raise awareness and donations through creative and imaginative approaches.
The goal is to raise £5,000 for three charities, EventWell, Make It Blue, and Meeting Needs. Every donation goes towards helping individuals who are experiencing personal and financial hardship. This event, and any size of donation will make a real difference to real people, our event people.
