I am really keen to organise a charity event in support of a forces charity and my local community i have been thinking about it for while but i guess i just do not know where to start. I have been thinking about a winter style ball, maybe an xmas style theme. would local venues be willing to subside costs because it is a charity event, would the press be happy to get involved? Can i please get some advice on this matter, maybe some good ideas and tips to a successful event. TheBrave.
