The Lime Venue Portfolio Charity Partner Program

Lime Venue Portfolio has a unique relationship with charities.

Many of the venues within our portfolio are themselves not for profit organisations, zoo’s, museums, country houses and visitor attractions that rely heavily on the meetings and events business they get to reinvest in their attractions.

It’s a relationship that goes both ways though, and Lime Venue Portfolio venues are also a major supplier to the many fund raising events that charities have every year for a whole host of different and worthy causes.

This relationship is incredibly important to us and a fundamental structure of our brand, therefore we wanted to create an offer for charities with the express purpose of encouraging them to have more fundraising events, and for them to better profit from them.

Venues who are part of the Lime Venue Portfolio Charity Program* will offer as a minimum:

*As some of our venues are registered charities themselves, they are not able to offer donations to other charities and as such are excluded from the minimum requirements of the LVP Charity Program. However, they are able to offer discounted rates for other charities.

**Not applicable when booked through third party booking agencies.

***Event planning meetings applicable to events over £10,000 – Boardroom meeting for 10 people with teas and coffees and room hire. Subject to your chosen venues capacities and availability.


Your Dedicated Support – Julia Simpson

Whether you’re planning a large charity fund raising dinner, as small meeting of your charities board, or a networking event or party to celebrate your charities supporters, then our dedicated Charity Account Manager, Julia Simpson is there to help.

Julia is our charity champion. First and foremost, she is passionate about understanding your charity and your event. She’ll help you find the best venue to suit your needs and work with that venue to create a package that is as financially attractive as we can make it, because, of course, we want to help you ensure as much money goes to your good causes as possible.

We Give Back in more ways than one: Social Value

As well as supporting Charities through the Lime Venue Portfolio Charity Program, a great number of our venues also deliver social value to their communities. Some, such as Bristol Zoo and Somerset House are registered charities in their own right, whilst others including Twickenham Stadium and Harlequins RFC deliver considerable investment into grass roots rugby.

Our football stadiums are heavily involved with their local communities, whilst our museum venues such as Imperial War Museum North and the Museum of Science and Industry provide great educational value to the nation as a whole. A large percentage of the money generated through the hosting of your conferences and events goes directly into helping them stay open and grow.

Case Studies

Yarnfield Park:

The charity, Association of Directors of Adult Social Services (ADASS), hold an annual Spring Seminar at Yarnfield Park.

Mary Gillingham, Business Manager at ADASS said: "This is the event where directors, senior colleagues, speakers, partners and guests gather to look forward to the policy developments and challenges for adult social care for the coming year. The event is held over 3 days and numbers peaked at 280 including day delegates on the middle day.

Staff could not have been more helpful and it is crucial for our event to be able to accommodate everyone comfortably on site. They were most accommodating regarding accessibility issues and worked hard on the feedback we gave them in relation to the seminar. We will be coming again."
