For volunteer events, we created an informative and easy to use website which gives information about the OMV and the different activities that it organises. The team at the OMV can easily update the site themselves by adding new activities as and when they need to through the custom built CMS.
Prospective volunteers apply to attend events by completing the dynamic application form, making a payment online. The system also accepts discount codes that are managed via the back-end.
For the White Knights Ball, we created a separate website that gives all the information about the event and allows attendees to book and pay for their tickets online. In addition the system has a clever option that allows people to host a table and then invite their guests to buy their places through the site. Guests are also able to manage their preferences such as dietary requirements via the site.
The new website makes it much easier for the OMV management team to keep track on ticket sales and revenue, generate tickets and produce the final table plan.
The Order of Malta Volunteers is a charity run by a group of young volunteers who organise holidays and events for sick or disabled adults and children. It was founded in 1973 and has two core aims: to give people with disabilities opportunities for experiences away from their day to day lives, and to give young people the experience of caring for disabled adults and children.
A key fundraising event organised by the OMV is the annual White Knights Ball. The ball, now in its 35th year, is attended by over 1200 people.
