Top tips


Holding an event which will involve food or alcohol? You need to follow simple guidelines for preparing, handling and cooking food and ensure people drink responsibly. You will need to have adequate first aid cover available for your event – take advice from a voluntary first aid organisation such as St. John Ambulance or the British Red Cross and don’t forget to ensure crowds and traffic are managed properly.

Do you need a license?

You may require a license if your event is going to incorporate dancing/music, sale of alcohol, selling of goods in a public place, collecting money in a public place, extended hours and provision of food or drink. Please check with your local authority to see if you do require a licence for your activity.


Where do I send funds?

You can do this in a number of ways:

By cheque

Include details of how you raised the money and include your contact details, so we can say thank you.

Bank transfer

Phone or email us and we will send through bank details, so you may transfer your payment.

Sponsorship forms

If you have any paper sponsorship forms, send them back to us with the cash you have raised so we can claim Gift Aid.
