Trybooking.com, a national online booking, registration and ticketing platform was launched in the Lake District in July 2014. Joan Lind returned to the UK after 13 years in Sydney with her English husband and Australian children. As they were returning to care for elderly parents this took them to the Lakes. Joan is also an Entrepreneur in Residence at Lancaster University: LINKED IN
After twenty years working with global ad agencies, rather than commuting to London or Manchester Joan decided to take on a new venture and launch a digital platform that she had been a client of in Australia. Trybooking is designed to make things a lot easier for anybody organising any type or size of event. Trybooking is an easy to use, time saving platform where bookings, registrations and ticketing can all be done in one easy step. It is free for all free events.
When not in lockdown we are helping Chambers of Commerce, Schools, Charities, Theatres, Musical organisations with their booking and ticketing requirements.
For example in Lancaster we work with Lancaster Priory, LRGS, The Gregson Centre, CancerCare, Lancaster Jazz Festival, More Music in Morecambe to name a few.
However, things have changed a bit since 23 March.
During this time of lockdown organisations are benefiting from Trybooking’s simple online booking system in new ways.
Virtual Events, be that networking, courses, fundraising in different ways, or some fun eg:
Motorbike Raffle for Teenage Charity: BOOK TICKETS HERE.
Motorhome Raffle for Carer Support Charity: https://carersupportsouthlakes.org.uk/.
Virtual Discos with local Radio Station by using Zoom.
https://www.trybooking.co.uk/RGE. The event organiser has yet to add next Saturday – but you will get the idea.
Tarot Reading Courses: https://www.trybooking.co.uk/RZU
In addition to virtual events we are helping organisations sell merchandise eg School Leavers’ Hoodies, and taking orders for deliveries especially for food and garden products.
Food boxes for the local community, being organised by schools, charities and farm shops.
This example has a mix of meat, fresh fruit and vegetables or a grocery box with flour and milk:
Sunday Lunches delivered
Two different examples:
School Leavers’ Hoodies.
If parents didn’t get a chance to order a hoodie before school closed, don’t worry, you can order a leavers hoodie for your year 6 child here. The colours available are black, jade, red and hot pink. They come in sizes age 9/11, 12/13, (£16) and adult XS and adult S (£17).
