NSPCC Great British Chefs dinner 2019

Charity social and special events

Gala dinners, wine challenges or exclusive movie clubs – our Special Events team hosts a wide variety of incredible events, all in support of the NSPCC.

Our calendar of special events, from traditional gala dinners to unique entertainment events and wine challenges to film clubs, are all year round. You'll have an unforgettable evening of fun, all the while raising lots of money to help change children's lives.

All our events raise money for either Childline or our Speak out Stay safe programme, essential services helping keep thousands of children safe from harm every year.

We're indebted to our committees of dedicated industry volunteers who work hand-in-hand with us to make these events a spectacular success. Each event is tailored to a specific industry and considered to be a highlight of their social calendars.

We're looking forward to returning to face-to-face events and our goal is to be compliant with the Government guidelines for events. Whilst there are currently no legal restrictions, we' re still conscious about putting on live events with safety as a top priority.

Here are a few things we have in place to ensure all event attendees have a safe and comfortable experience:

  1. We are in regular contact with all our venues and suppliers. Guidance may differ from event to event and we will ensure you have all the information you need for attending our events.

  2. We ask that you make use of the sanitising stations provided around the venue.

  3. Face masks are optional at events but encouraged to be worn when moving around the venue.

  4. We strongly encourage all event attendees to take a rapid lateral flow test a maximum of 36 hours prior to attending the event to ensure they are Covid-19 negative. By taking a rapid lateral flow test prior to the event you are helping to ensure the safety of all those attending as well as NSPCC volunteers and staff. You can order free rapid lateral flow tests here.

  5. As per government guidance we ask that you do not attend the event if you have been asked to self-isolate by either Track and Trace, the NHS app or due to international travel guidelines. Detailed government guidance can be found here

We will remain conscious of any Government Guidelines and regulations and adapt and update where needed to ensure we provide a safe event.

We're looking for volunteers to help with our portfolio of exciting evening events and gala dinners this year. 

The NSPCC events calendar brings together guests from a range of sectors for luxurious and unforgettable evenings of entertainment. These events  help to raise vital funds for the NSPCC and Childline.

There are many different roles to get involved with at our events, including:

  • setting up during the day
  • selling raffle tickets
  • hosting tables 
  • encouraging guests to bid in the silent auction
  • taking part in fundraising games and activities
  • greeting and supporting guests throughout the evening

Abuse can ruin childhoods, but it can also be prevented, which is why the NSPCC events team organise industry-leading occasions to raise funds and highlight the work that we do. If you're interested in helping us in the coming event season, please get in touch:
