Charity dinners were held at both events. At Security TWENTY 19 Belfast, which was the first time the event had been held in Northern Ireland, a total of £1,300 was raised for Air Ambulance Northern Ireland, which provides the Helicopter Emergency Medical Service (HEMS) for the region. Entirely reliant on support from the public and local businesses, it costs around £5,500 each day and £2m each year to keep the service operational.

In Dublin, £3,000 was raised for the Little Blue Heroes Foundation, a not-for-profit charity operated entirely by volunteers made up of Garda members/staff, retired Garda members, their families, friends and community volunteers. It aims to help families in need from local communities in Ireland who have children undergoing long-term medical treatment for serious illnesses. So far Security TWENTY events have raised in excess of £70,000 for charitable causes.
