Fundraising can get complicated at times so here are some guidelines to help make sure your activities are legal and following UK fundraising regulations.
• If you’re playing music and/or selling alcohol you will need a Temporary Event Notice - make sure you have the right licence. These cost £21 and you apply for them from your local council. You must submit your application at least 10 days before your event.
• If you’re holding a raffle you do not need a licence if the tickets are only being sold during the event. If you’re selling tickets in advance then it gets more complicated. Please read the ‘Running a Lottery’ leaflet, and if you need further advice please check the latest regulations with the Gambling
Commission at www.gamblingcommission.gov.uk
• If you are collecting money in a tin or bucket on the street or in a public place (eg. local high streets, parks) you need a permit to do this from the local authority. You can collect on private land (eg Supermarkets, train stations, local companies) with the permission of the landowner.
• When holding a bucket you can smile but cannot shake the bucket or ask for money
• Buckets must be sealed and should clearly show the name of the charity
• Your bucket collectors should remain stationary unless in a procession
• Bucket collectors must be accompanied by an adult if under 18
• If you are holding a cake sale
• In a public place you need a permit to do this from the local authority.
• It is helpful to list the cake ingredients and especially the allergens
• We recommend you follow basic Food Safety guidelines including refrigeration, wear gloves when handling food etc. You can find helpful information at https://www.food.gov.uk/food-safety
• Anyone handling food should not also handle cash
