What if we told you that there was a way to throw an amazing event all while giving back to your community? Impossible? Not in London.

When organising an event, part of your budget will go towards the venue. But unlike most of your other expenses, that part of your budget can contribute to an inspiring charity, as well.

Here are the four venues that are doing something really inspiring for a worthy cause, and by hiring them you can be apart of it, too.

1. BMA House

BMA House

As well as being one of London's most magnificent and stately buildings, designed in 1911 by Sir Edward Luytens, BMA House is home to the British Medical Association.

The Association helps and support British doctors, working as a trade union to protect their rights, and also lobbying government to ensure that the highest possible standards for British healthcare are upheld and pushed forwards.

And to top it all off, it's one of the city's most awe-inspiring venues.

2. Rich Mix

Rich Mix

Rich Mix is a charity and social enterprise, and it works to support emerging artists and the cultural landscape of London. One key way it achieves this is by supporting diversity in the arts, which is always something to welcome with open arms.

The venue includes three boutique cinemas, which celebrate and support independent film. They've also got an amazing blank canvas, where you really get a sense of the original leather factory that the venue was developed from.

And, with an expansive main space for all sorts of parties, your event can bounce off this venue's creative and artistic energy.

3. The Skip Garden

The Skip Garden

At the heart of King's Cross, The Skip Garden is a moveable organic garden built in skips. But far from being a quirky take on an allotment, this community initiative is engaging local young people, teaching key skills about team work, sustainability and food quality. They're even helping out the bees with a series of hives (yay!)

You can place your event in this invigorating setting, making use of their 'Yurt', their outdoor area or the whole thing.

4. The Crystal

The Crystal

The Crystal is widely known as 'the world's most sustainable events venue', as is the only place in the world with an interactive exhibition that is dedicated to urban sustainability. It's got a pretty amazing view, too.

As a venue, it offers a comprehensive array of top range spaces. These include a hi-tech auditorium and a restaurant with a glass wall that makes the most of the view over Royal Victoria Docks.
