                                 Charity fundraising is strictly regulated by law.

                                 You must obtain permission and/or a licence before you collect money. In a public
                                 place, you need to obtain a licence from your local council, always contact them well
                                 in advance of your collection. On private property, such as a shopping centre, you will
                                 need permission from the owner or manager of the property.
                                 Please contact WellChild before organising a collection – we can provide you with
                                 supporting materials such as collecting tins & t-shirts.

                                 Printed Materials
                                 Always include our charity name and charity registration number as follows:
                                 WellChild is a Registered Charity No. 289600.

                                 Always contact your local environmental health department for advice before
                                 planning to serve food. For alcohol, a licence (or ‘occasional permission’ for a one-off
                                 event) must be obtained from the local licensing justice - alternatively, use a venue
                                 that already holds a licence.

                                 A lottery is where tickets are sold with the chance of a prize. Where an element of
                                 skill is involved, such as guessing the weight of a baby, it becomes a competition and
                                 has fewer restrictions.

                                 Private Lottery
                                 Where a raffle is limited to members of a society, work place or premises (e.g. a
                                 school, a pub or club), you do not need a licence. The draw must take place on the
                                 premises where the tickets are sold.

                                 Small Lottery
                                 A draw as part of a wider event.There can be no cash prizes and the total value of
                                 purchased prizes must be £250 or less.There is no limit on the value of donated prizes.
                                 If you would like to know more about the legalities of a planned event,
                                 please contact your local authority.
