Fundraising events are the lifeblood of many charities, and Mark has used his magic on many occasions over the years to help charity organisations both large and small to provide entertainment at a variety of money raising occasions.
“As a Charity this was the first time we have arranged a networking reception and therefore it was new territory to be explored. Your magic helped break down barriers between groups of guests and provided light relief that is not always available at such a function. The integration of our name and logo into your magic provided a key talking point and helped reinforce the message of awareness that we were hoping to achieve. Once again thank you for your involvement – it was a key factor in making the evening a success for us.” Lindsey Horton, the Jesse May Trust
So if you are organising a charity event such as a dinner and would like Mark to bring his strolling magic to the tables of the guests during the meal, or you are having an outdoor informal occasion in the summer where Mark could mix and mingle with the attendees, or whether you are hoping to provide some much needed fun and laughter for supporters and their families, do contact Mark to see how he can help to enhance the occasion.
"I just wanted to let you know what great feedback we had from our guests at our fundraising dinner last week! Everyone I have spoken to has said how much they enjoyed the evening and the entertainment that you provided. I would happily recommend you to anyone looking for a magician to entertain – it was great!" Jess Winchester, Fundraising Manager, BIBIC
As a full time professional magician Mark unfortunately cannot ever work for free, but he does have a special charity rate which he will usually be able to apply to genuine charity events. So it is worth contacting Mark to discuss what you have in mind, because having his professional comedy sleight of hand magic available will help to put those who come in a good, relaxed frame of mind and hopefully therefore make them more likely to put their hand in their pockets to support your cause.
"We hired Mark to add another dimension to our charity golf day and to help entertain our guests before and during the evening dinner. His performance was superb. Mark mingled unobtrusively between tables, performing for our guests if they so wished. His illusions were imaginative and we were all amazed. I have seen magicians before, but Mark's fantastic illusions defy belief and will keep you guessing for days!" Gemma Boyland, West Of England School and College
