Walking With The Wounded Fundraisers
Walking With The Wounded does not authorise you to act as an agent for or on behalf of Walking With The Wounded so your fundraising materials must not suggest that you represent Walking With The Wounded.
If you are a business and you are fundraising by selling goods, services, or running a promotion, the law may require you to have a Fundraising Agreement with us. Please contact us by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or by writing to us at Walking With The Wounded, Fundraising, Stody Hall Barns, Stody, Melton Constable, Norfolk, NR24 2ED
We don’t advise you to collect money in public places or door to door. If you do choose to do so, you’ll need to possess a certificate of authority from Walking With The Wounded and a licence from your local authority (you should find details about this on your Local Authority’s website).
If you are planning a lottery (such as a raffle, tombola or sweepstake), you should be aware that there are strict laws and rules about what you can do. For those of you in England, Wales or Scotland, the Gambling Commission publishes useful guidance about these at www.gamblingcommission.gov.uk. The Northern Ireland Council for Voluntary Action publishes guidance for Northern Ireland at www.nicva.org.
Children and Fundraising
If children (under 16) are involved in fundraising in any way, please make sure they have permission from their parent or guardian, and are supervised by a responsible adult. Children should never approach strangers about fundraising. It is illegal for children under 16 years of age to participate in public collections. Never leave your children unsupervised during an event or fundraising activity.
Please make sure you have suitiable insurance cover, these are some of the considerations you may need to think about:
• Public Liability cover
• Damage to property owned, hired or borrowed
• Event Cancellation Insurance
• Travel Insurance
• Cover to meet any contractual conditions
If the fundraising is by a group of people attached to a firm the company’s insurers may consider providing some cover for a staff or customer charitable event.
Please be legal! While we really appreciate your support, Walking With The Wounded is not responsible for organising, supervising or hosting your fundraising activity and all activities and participation are at the organisers’ and participants’ own risk. Walking With The Wounded does not accept responsibility or liability for any loss or damage or for any death or personal injury arising out of any fundraising activity, including liability as a result of negligence (except death or personal injury caused by Walking With The Wounded negligence).
