Holding a collection stand is not only a great way to raise funds but also to raise much needed awareness within your community!
Where to have your collection stand
There are lots of places that you can collect funds for us such as your local high street, a local sporting event, train station, supermarket or shopping centre.
Supermarkets are a great place to hold a collection stand.
What type of collection
There are many different forms of charitable collections, and all have different rules associated with them. Some of the most common are:
- Street collections – If you are holding a collection in the street, you will need to obtain a licence, either from your local authority, or if in greater London, the Metropolitan Police
- Private collections – If your collection is still open to the public, but being held on private property such as within a shopping centre or rail station, you must obtain permission from the landowner or manager
- Static collection boxes – Boxes must be secure and tamper-proof. You do not need a licence to place these in a shop or business, just permission from the business owner
- House-to-house collections – Licences must be obtained from the relevant local authority or Metropolitan Police
