As part of our commitment to help those in need, we have pledged to allocate a portion of our turnover to a number of chosen charities. To uphold our pledge, TheStadiumBusiness Design & Development Summit 2016 have included a fundraising element in the event.
We have partnered with our local hosts in Manchester and Liverpool this year, providing bespoke tours over the 3 days and we have also partnered up with our hosts’ chosen charities to contribute to their fundraising efforts.
We have secured some unique prizes, including a signed LCCC cricket bat, signed Everton FC ball, signed MCFC programme and rare MCFC signed pennant and will be running both a raffle and a photo booth social media competition on site. As always, TheStadiumBusiness will match the amount raised and then the total will be split equally between the four charities.
So, if you’re attending, bring a little cash with you to get involved, if you can’t attend but would like to contribute, get in touch with Tamara to see how you can help.
The four charities we are raising money for in this edition are:
LCCC Foundation: The LCCC Foundation is an independent & registered charity working with schools & community groups to develop and deliver a range of Education, Health, Community Cohesion & Cricket Development projects, programmes & events designed to ‘inspire communities through cricket’.

Everton in the Community
At Everton in the Community we aim to use the power of sport to motivate, educate and inspire people in our local communities to improve their life chances. Through this pioneering approach, we have earned a reputation for delivering best practice in the sporting charity sector. Since 2010, we have provided ongoing development opportunities for thousands of participants. This has resulted in the charity winning over 80 accolades, both nationally and internationally. Although we are Everton’s official charity we are a separate, self-financing organisation. As such, we rely upon the support and generosity of donors and contributors from all walks of life and many diverse organisations. If there is any way in which you or your organisation feel they may support our endeavours (whether financially or otherwise) please do not hesitate to contact us.
Liverpool FC Foundation
Liverpool FC Foundation is the official charity of Liverpool Football Club. The Foundation raises funds, develops partnerships and delivers programmes that engage people through their passion for LFC and football, and helps them to become: healthier, improve their life chances and contribute positively to their community. Being part of Liverpool FC is like being part of a family, and that means looking out for each other – particularly those in need. We believe in bringing communities together and raising aspirations, because our family deserves health, happiness and the best opportunities in life.
