Sheffield based social enterprise, Tickets for Good hits 100,000 users
Recently, social enterprise Tickets for Good hit one of their major project milestones - the ticketing platform now has over 100,000 active users registered on the site in little over a year.
The Tickets for Good Foundation, based in Sheffield, gives free event tickets to charities and social groups via the Ticket Bank’s NHS ticketing platform. Set up just over a year ago, the NHS platform has thousands of people receiving free event tickets via charity partners across the UK allowing NHS staff, frontline workers, social care workers and volunteers to access event tickets for free.
Sheffield based technology consultants, The Curve, were appointed in 2020 to help scale its digital capacity in preparation for the return of venue-based events and a ‘rapid increase in demand’.
The Curve delivered the features and functionality of the Tickets for Good’s platform evolution strategy to help to bring philanthropy to the forefront of its ticketing experience, allowing every attendee to engage with charitable giving as well as great events.
The Curve’s CTO and Co-Founder, James Ridgway, said: “First of all a big congratulations to the Tickets for Good team on hitting 100,000 users. It’s great to see the hard work of so many individuals from both The Curve’s and Tickets for Good’s team paying off and providing a great benefit for our NHS and healthcare workers.”
As the Tickets for Good’s technical delivery partner, The Curve is ‘incredibly proud’ that their ticketing platform is receiving the recognition it deserves. The award highlights the incredible work the Tickets for Good team has done, as well as demonstrating the open collaboration relationship that is needed in providing the service.
Steve Rimmer, founder and CEO of Tickets for Good, said: “We’re extremely grateful to everyone at The Curve for helping to make our dreams, of event inclusion for all, a reality.
“They have been an integral part of our platform since day one and provide a fantastic service for us. The recent award from TheTicketingBusiness is testament to the quality of our project and The Curve have been a key part of making that happen.”
