Working with Charities - Victorious Festival

Working with Charities

£330,193.52 raised so far since 2014

Victorious Festival supports numerous good causes and charities around the city and the world. The closest residents to the festival help nominate and decide who will benefit from each year’s donations creating community involvement from start to finish.

While most of the chosen charities have local roots, the reach of their work is widespread and impacts many different sectors of society. Victorious’ donations assist in furthering these charities missions both nationally and internationally. We’re very proud of our Portsmouth roots and look forward to contributing to the elected charities each year.

2019

2019’s Festival saw us raise over £65,000.00 for nominated charities and good causes including:

Portsmouth Rape Crisis (PARC), African Womens Forum Portsmouth- Mandela Centenary, Age UK Portsmouth, The Elizabeth Foundation, Enable Ability, A World With Friends, The Waterfront Garden Centre, Gig Buddies, KIDS Smile Centre, Buckland Park Play Association, Meon Milton Football Club, Motiv8, Tonic Music for Mental Health, Portsea Carnival, Portsea Carnival, Portsmouth Over 60s Festival, Southsea Rock Garden Friends, The Life House Southsea, Aspex Gallery, RNLI Portsmouth, Global Make Some Noise, Second Chance, Arms Around The Child and Star and Crescent.

Where do the donations come from?

Each year we donate a percentage of income from ticket sales, trader pitch fees and ticket donations to nominated charities.  We invite residents local to the festival site to help us decide charities they feel should benefit from donations from Victorious Festival.

How can I put my charity forward?

Alongside nominations from residents who live locally to the festival we welcome charities to put themselves forward in advance of the event to be considered for a donation. Please complete this form and tell us more about the great work you are doing!

How else can Victorious help?

“The team from Victorious have helped us reduce our events costs by loaning us use of crowd barriers for our annual Moonlit Memories Walk and our Summer Fete, both held on Castle Fields in Southsea. This means that we can use more of the money raised from these events to provide the specialist hospice care. We are very grateful to Victorious for all their support.”

Craig Willcock, Fundraising & Events Manager, Rowans Hospice

We are passionate about Portsmouth and keen to help locally where we can. If you are organising an event locally and are in need of any support please email siobhan@victoriousfestival.co.uk. If we can help, we will get back to you as soon as possible.

Alongside our annual financial donations Victorious also regularly donates tickets to local charities for raffle prizes.
