In This Section:
Before we start we’d like to say a huge thank you first of all for taking the time to fundraise for us, we really appreciate it and are so grateful to you for giving up your time to help.
We’ve put together some guidelines and tips to help you and to ensure that you have all the information you need. Please do get in touch with us though if you have any questions that haven’t been answered here.
Just so you know, we do not provide insurance for any events and you may need to have this in place for some fundraising activities.
Letter of Authority
We will provide you with a letter of authority for your event. You may need this if you are hiring a hall or other venue or if you are gathering prizes for a raffle etc.
We will provide you with labelled collection tins for use in street collections or other events. Please ensure you have the relevant permission from the local authority or private landlord if applicable.
Raffles/Lotteries and prize draws
There are strict legal requirements around these please check this link for further information: http://www.institute-of-fundraising.org.uk/code-of-fundraising-practice/guidance/raffles-and-lotteries-guidance/
Please be aware there are some things you cannot do if you are under 18. It may be a good idea to have an adult on hand to help. Please note you cannot be involved in fundraising events that holds raffles, involves alcohol or carries out street collections.
Risk Assessment & Health & Safety
Depending what you are doing, you may need to carry out a risk assessment before your event takes place. This is to help you work out what might cause harm or problems during your activity and to give you time to get in place any precautions you may need before your event. This is particularly important if your activity involves food. You may need to speak to your local environmental health officer beforehand. If in doubt check with your local authority.
You must respect the confidentiality of anyone taking part in your event. If you have names and contact numbers for participants for example, these must be kept securely. Don’t share information about anyone without permission. Check out this link for further information: https://www.gov.uk/data-protection/the-data-protection-act
