Raffles– If you want to hold a raffle at your event to raise more money check whether you need a licence, typically if you are only selling tickets during the event and the prizes total less than £500 you won’t need one.
Collections– If you are wanting to hold a collection in a private place like a shopping centre you will need the permission of a manager, if you want to hold a street collection you will need to contact your local authority.
Do not do door-to-door collections as you need a licence to do this.
Selling Alcohol– If you want to sell alcohol you will need a liquor licence from the local authority.
Food Hygiene– Make sure you follow appropriate food hygiene if you are going to be handling or making food at your event.
If you are unsure about whether you need a licence or if there are any laws that you need to follow, contact the fundraising team and we will provide you with as much information as we can.
