Philanthropy & Community Support
Supporting UK’s Mental Health Foundation
We donate £100 of every event over £1000 to charities and good causes. Our champion charity is Mental Health Foundation which works on strategies and research that looks to prevent mental health issues. We are particularly interested in mental health in the Events Industry amongst staff, suppliers, professionals and customers.
The Events Industry is regarded as one of the top 10 most stressful professions. Through work with the Mental Health Foundation and other practitioners, our contribution is aimed at supporting individuals in finding coping strategies to combat stress and anxiety whilst working, and in their daily lives.
Providing Concessions for Charity Events
In addition to our work with Mental Health Foundation and volunteering in our community, Eventologists provides in-kind support and large concessions to various charities who wish to theme their charity events with us. In 2019, we gave away £47,000 worth of concessions in event theming to charity organizations nationally.
Preferred Wellness Practitioners for Discounted Services
Our Directors, Rita and Sital Chandarana, are passionate about helping individuals improve their mental health, combat loneliness, and take control of their lives through various natural wellness methods.
As additional support, we’ve partnered with the following practitioners to offer our clients and community discounted wellness services that we’ve personally benefited from:
Hypnotherapy: Unblock Limiting Patterns and Transform your Life
Rapid Transformational Therapy™ (RTT) combines the most beneficial aspects of hypnotherapy, NLP and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy to enable you to access the subconscious mind to uncover, reprogram and upgrade limiting patterns and conditioned behaviours. RTT enables you to tap into your subconscious mind to access the root cause of your mental and physical blocks so you can effectively heal and create permanent change in your life. RTT is rapid, producing swift and lasting results in typically just one session.
Our RTT specialist, Gerard Hill is a qualified hypnotherapist, trainer and mentor. In the past, he has worked with Eventologists on many events and is therefore passionate about helping other event crew members and the larger community through his services.
You can book a FREE 30-minute Discovery Call with Gerard on his website, The Transformation Therapy, to learn more.
Yoga & Meditation: Balancing the Body, Mind, Emotions and Energy Systems
Yoga is not simply an exercise form, it is a way of creating balance and harmony between your segregated and limited internal world and the vast, inter-connected and infinite external universe.
The science of yoga provides tools to align your system with the cosmic geometry, through various branches, including asanas (physical postures), kriyas (inner energy processes), pranayama (breathe mastery techniques), meditation (mindfulness practices), mantra (raising vibrations) and more.
FREE Online Tools
Our preferred yoga partner, Shayla Ghelani, is a Classical Hatha Yoga teacher based in East London. In addition, she has worked in the Events industry over the past five years and in Corporate for 15 years prior to that. With first-hand experience of the stress that comes with working in such high pressure environments, Shayla has partnered with us to offer FREE online tools to our clients, employees and community members during the Covid-19 lockdown and beyond.
She will resume offering private classes and group workshops once possible and is happy to offer the Eventologists’ community a 15% discount on all bookings.

We have worked with Eventologists for the a couple of years now and can't fault them from start to finish the whole process is very seamless and the stuff they do is incredible! We have themed evenings and they always come up with some fab ideas that help to emphasise the theme and bring it to life. Our events have conference sessions in the venue during the day and we transform them for our awards in the evening and Eventologists always completely transform the space for the evening so that it feels like you're in a completely different space which makes it all feel so much more special and a real celebration and by the time morning arrives its all completely cleared as if by magic!

A wonderful team who made our event space look incredible. Jacob took our ideas and brought them to life. We've had amazing feedback about the event design, so we couldn't be happier. Everyone really loved the living wall and trees!

Rita has been an absolute pleasure to work with; she listened to our ideas and vision and then totally ran with it and created something better than we could have ever imagined! On the event day, Rita and her team swooped in and decorated our venue in record time. Rita and the team were professional and efficient. We look forward to working with Eventologists again next year!

We’ve used the services of Eventologists on numerous occasions and their expertise is priceless. Great service as always from Rita and her team who are always full of ideas and ways to make your event stand out. We’ve hired sets for Moulin Rouge, Great Gatsby, Hollywood and Glitz and Glam plus they created a wonderful set for a festival including tress with festoon and flags. Highly recommended and great to work with.
