Meeting Needs is a registered charity founded by leading figures in the UK conference and events Industry. The objective of Meeting Needs is to raise funds for worthy causes relevant to the events industry which may not have the resources to raise sufficient funds without additional contributions. Many needy causes do not have access to public funding and Meeting Needs can provide financial support to these types of organisations through various fund-raising initiatives and activities.
Beneficiaries have included
Computer training for schoolchildren – Six computers and a wall-mounted white board and projector for Chanzige Primary School in Southern Tanzania with a grant of £2,400.
Donation of £5000 will help disabled – For SpecialEffect the purchase of a Specialist Kit for nearly £5000 will test an individual’s ability to operate hardware to benefit from life-enhancing computer software.
Clean water for a Zambian village – £4,500 donated by Meeting Needs is enough to support an entire village in Zambia to change their hygiene and sanitation practices and access safewater.
This year we raised a whopping £43,000 thanks to your generous donations.
