Remember to keep your event safe and legal whilst you're having fun at your fundraiser. There are a few hints and tips below, and of course you can contact our team on the number below for more information.
It’s very simple to ensure your event is safe and legal. Look at the pointers below and complete a risk assessment.
If you are organising a raffle where you will be selling tickets only at the event and drawing the winner at the event you do not need a license. However, if you would like to sell tickets before the event you must obtain a small lotteries license from your local authority and get tickets printed with the licensing number and charity number on. Please contact the local licensing department at Northampton council.
If you want to collect money on private property (pubs, shopping centres) you can do this as long as you have the owner’s permission. It is advisable to gain a permission letter from us for this. If you want to collect on any public land, you will need a collection permit for this. Please call the fundraising team to discuss this before approaching the council.
Licenses for events
Sale of alcohol
Extended opening hours
Selling of food and drink
All of these activities will all need licenses gained from the local authority. Check with the venue as they may already have a license which will cover your event.
Cynthia Spencer Hospice Charity cannot accept liability for any fundraising activity or event you undertake for us. You should take out insurance which will cover your activity prior to your event taking place. Ensure your venue and all suppliers have their own insurance and ask for copies.
Depending on the size of your event you may need a qualified first aider. Check with the local council for details.
What are the fire precautions and are the fire exits marked and clear on the day of the event?
If you know anyone who has a food hygiene certificate ask them to oversee all food preparation areas. If not, as a minimum ensure all areas are clean, tidy and food is stored adequately.
The local council will be able to give you further details and guidance should you require this.
Any equipment used at your event needs to be in good working order and if necessary, operated by people competent to use it. Make sure you put equipment in a safe place and ensure all cables are secured so that they are not a trip hazard.
If you are having to lift heavy items, we can supply information on how to lift safely. Please ask the fundraising team.
Keep money in a safe place at all times and consider where it will be stored after the event if you cannot get straight to the bank or to the hospice.
Children under the age of 16 are not legally able to collect money without an adult present.
Use our Risk Assessment Form to help you make sure every element of your event safety has been considered.
