Keep It Safe And Legal

Follow this checklist to make sure your fundraising activity is safe, fun and legal. Contact the Fundraising team for advice.

Data protection: ensure the records you keep about people involved in a fundraising event comply with the Data Protection Act.

Insurance: all public events need to be covered by public liability insurance. Check that any buildings/equipment you hire or use are covered by insurance.

Food hygiene: take great care when handling food. Work to basic rules for safe preparation, storage, display and cooking. Check the guidance on the Food Standards Agency’s website:

Raffles and lotteries: there are strict legal requirements for raffles, lotteries and prize draws. Remember: if you’re holding a raffle during an event, draw the winning ticket on the day.
