Edinburgh Events Challenge


Do you have an idea for an amazing event?

Could you turn £150 or £500 into something really incredible?

Would ‘Events Champion Award 2017 Winner’ look good on your CV?

Do you want to have fun and help a great local cause?

Edinburgh Events Challenge

Why not get involved in the Edinburgh Events Challenge?

  • Tell us your fantastic event idea
  • If your idea is selected, you will be given a budget and the support to make your event a fantastic reality.
  • The team/person that raises the most to tackle loneliness in over 60s in Edinburgh wins the ‘Events Champion 2017 Award’ and £150 prize money. Amazing!


Edinburgh is the loneliest city in the UK for older people, with 11,000 being always or often alone.

All funds raised will go towards Vintage Vibes – a local project tackling loneliness in over 60s across the city (but don’t worry, events don’t have to be vintage themed or catering to over 60s).



The Edinburgh Events Challenge is open to everyone! But, if you’re a student there’s a chance you can access an extra £350 budget through our collaboration with the Edinburgh Students Charities Appeal – making your total budget £500! Yay!



Monday 23rd October at noon.
