Entourage supporting the Beatson Cancer Charity

Delivering events is what Entourage UK are best known for and it is what they are good at and highly respected for.

In the current climate with no live events taking place charities are facing increasingly challenging times.  Entourage UK have teamed up with the Beatson Cancer Charity to focus on something positive and to help them to raise some essential funds.  Entourage UK initially reached out to their extensive network to secure some prizes with the intention to hold a raffle and they were overwhelmed by the response and the support they received.  Thanks to many clients and suppliers Entourage UK secured a fantastic range of prizes including donations from Elaine C Smith and Edward Reid. Entourage UK wanted to try and enhance the profile of the fundraiser which developed from the original concept of a raffle to include an online auction combined with a live online quiz. The quiz was held in partnership with Andy Dunlop from The Stayin’ Inn and over 200 teams joined in live on the night with the live audience helping to double the amount of donations.  Laura Mills, Director said “We would like to thank everyone who donated a prize and who donated to the fundraiser and special thanks to Andy at The Stayin Inn for helping us raise so much money for The Beatson Cancer Charity.

Linzi Harvey, Director commented “We love to speak to people and networking is a huge part of our corporate life, often during the conversation we can identify an opportunity where we can make a genuine difference.  Albeit it is in a very different format these days, but networking and events are still a very valuable way for us to maintain our relationships, make new contacts and identify new opportunities.  A recent example of how effective networking online can be is our latest partnership with the Beatson Cancer Charity which we are extremely proud of and we are grateful to each and every company/individual that donated a prize or supported the event financially”

Charlene Low, Corporate Partnerships Fundraiser for The Beatson Cancer Charity said “The challenges faced this year by all has been extremely challenging, without the support and fundraising from the likes of Entourage we would not be able to continue to support those patients and families facing a cancer journey.  Beatson Cancer Charity have adapted our services during these challenging times to ensure that each person affected by cancer receives that care, love and hope that they absolutely deserve during these difficult times.  Thank you Linzi and Laura from Entourage UK and your wider network for organising these fundraising activities during a time that you have faced uncertainty and challenges too. The event raised in excess of £2500 for the Beatson Cancer Charity, funds which are even more valuable in the current climate.  

Whilst the events industry may face many challenges for months to come there are opportunities for the team at Entourage UK to work with businesses and add value, communication is key, and Entourage UK is very much open for business.

Entourage UK fundraiser for Beatson Cancer Charity

Autumn is traditionally our busiest time of the year and would normally see the Ayrshire Business Awards, the General Teaching Council Scotland Awards, and the Glasgow Business Awards take place. Events like these provide a fantastic platform to help raise essential funds for charities and over the years we have been proud to have raised thousands of pounds for so many great causes. Whilst we can't deliver our events in the current climate we still wanted to give something back. We are delighted to be supporting the Beatson Cancer Charity this year and we are planning a prize draw which will be drawn on 2nd Novemeber with all proceeds going directly to them. We already have secured some amazing prizes but we would really appreciate some more. If you would like to donate a prize please e-mail This email address is being protected from spambots.

We're in it together

The events industry is facing an extraordinary challenge in an ever changing environment.  We want to reassure our clients that we along with many suppliers are open for business and operating by following all of the government advice given.  These are unprecedented times and we need to support one another where possible.  We would actively encourage you to get in touch with us regarding your events and plans for any future events and we can work with you to introduce postponement plans or develop future plans.  To all of our suppliers, we need to stick together and collaborative support has never been more important – we’re in it together.

To all of our key workers/front line services we thank you for everything you do. 

Stay safe and stay in touch.
