Here’s just a few things to think about when fundraising for Forever Manchester.

If you plan to do a collection for us, you can request a collection shaker, box or bucket. Please be aware there are regulations and restrictions about collecting money in publicly owned spaces or private businesses that aren’t your own. To request a shaker call us on 0161 214 0940 or email us at

Raffles and Lotteries.
Raffles and lotteries are also governed by legislation, so our advice is to make use of our own Captain Manchester’s Magical Tombola which is a small society lottery and is registered with the licensing authority. It is run in compliance with the rules laid down by the Gambling Act 2005
( and is subject to the laws of England and
Wales. For details about our tombola, visit

Data Protection.
Data Protection is something you will need to know about if you are collecting personal details. As a rule of thumb, don’t collect or keep personal information you don’t need, and don’t share personal data about someone without their permission. For more information read Forever Manchester’s Privacy Policy at ForeverManchester. com/privacy-policy/

Health and Safety.
When you organise a fundraising event, you are responsible for making sure it poses no risk to others. Please check what public liability insurance is in place at the venue where you are hosting your fundraiser. If you are handling food please take care and work to the basic rules for safe preparation, storage, display and cooking. Please refer to
