Project Aim: 

To raise funds to get New Website built, after company that hosted the business website refused to pay compensation when a serious virus infected their servers and totally destroyed my business website, clear all related debt.... And at the same time, improve the business to create a better future.

Who are we ?

Mega Fun (UK) is a Nationwide Entertainment Booking Agency, Est. March 1999, that provide over 1000 top quality acts, entertainers and fun entertainment equipment ((bouncy castles, inflatables, bungee trampolines, etc.) (and also in association with many suppliers across the UK)), including acts from your favourite shows; Britains Got Talent, X-Factor, Stars In Their Eyes, and The Voice, to Pubs, Clubs, Nightclubs, Private Parties, Festivals, Hotels, Fun Days, Events and Weddings, a commercial business whose primary purpose is to earn profit.

What are we doing ?

The campaign has been set up to raise funding to get a new website built to replace the site that was destroyed by the virus. The original website was built and set up as my main source of income, and to convert visitors into paying customers (which is the main reason for business websites) and without it, it has placed the business in financial difficulties, and caused nothing but a lot of grief, heartache and stress. I also intend to improve the business at this time so that issues like this DO NOT happen in the future, the plan for improvement is to provide my own bouncy castle, inflatable, and fun entertainment equipment hire service, which will include fun entertainment equipment that is not already available in the immediate and surrounding areas, and which would also be made available for events across Kent and the rest of the UK.

Why do we need your support ?

Mega Fun (UK), is a small business, regardless of how many acts and entertainers are represented, and run by one (1) person, me, the owner and founder. The business operates on a commission basis, and always has done since the business was founded, and even though this provided the funding to run the business, and provide a tight living, it has'nt provided the means to meet / fullfill my dreams of adding a bouncy castle, inflatable and fun entertainment equipment hire service to the business, and due to the virus destroying my previous website, income and my living became even tighter.

I do not meet the criteria for a business loan, so the only way open to me to make it possible for any chance of raising the funding for a new website, and improve my business for the future is by your support through this crowdfunder campaign.

It is extremely vital, when working within the entertainment industry as an agency, to have a fully functional website available so that customers, both current and potential, can view the acts, entertainers, and fun entertainment equipment we have available for hire, to be able to view promotional videos of available solo singers, duo's, tribute acts and tribute bands, etc., and then proceed to completing and submitting the online enquiry form, and booking their chosen entertainment.

Without this vital asset, it has caused serious loss of business, severely reducing the income that the business was producing, and proving that having  a business website is essential to make any business operate smoothly, especially in the entertainment agency business when customers want to view before booking.

It is for these reasons why we require your support, your very much appreciated help that will get us back into the position that we were in when we were made....           ....earlier this year.

By pledging / donating towards my Crowdfunder campaign, you will be helping me to get my business back into the position that it was in before the hosting servers were infected by the virus that completely destroyed my previous website, and allow me to, through the new website, provide a bigger business, and a better service, and provide myself with a better stable living. Now in our 18th year of trading as Mega Fun (UK), and just after receiving the above award, the thought of folding the business and letting down my customers (both current and new), and over a 1000 acts and entertainers (with many new acts and entertainers wanting to sign up with my agency), is clearly, Not An Option.

What will the money be used for ?

First, and the most important, approximately £300.00 GBP to have new website built, get a new domain name and secure hosting for 5 years. To improve the business and provide a better future and support for my family, I need to purchase a suitable vehicle capable of towing a trailer, and a selection of fun entertainment equipment 'for customer hire' which will totally improve business, and the services I provide, and... to have somewhere to operate from and store the equipment, I need to rent / purchase premises.

What's in it for you ?

Your support means everything and I would be extremely grateful if you would make a donation towards saving and improving my business, and in return for your generous contribution, you will receive a reward which you can see below, and in the panel on the right.
