Below is a list of things to help you think about how to keep your fundraising safe, legal and fun.
Health and safety
When considering fundraising activities, you will need to consider the risks and how to minimize potential risk.
Please note: Coram cannot accept any responsibility for accident, injury, loss or damage as a result of your fundraising event.
Please conduct a risk assessment to ensure you have plans in place to protect participants.
If you need more information, consult the Health and Safety Executive at www.hse.gov.uk
If you are thinking of organising a large-scale event, please email email@example.com and we will complete a more detailed risk assessment with you.
Please ensure that all participants are fully briefed about the event, including any risks, fitness requirements, special equipment or clothing required, and standards of behaviour expected.
If you are taking part in or hosting a fitness event, it is the responsibility of the individual to ensure they are fit enough to take part.
Please ensure that your event is adequately supervised.
Where children are included, it’s important that you:
- provide adequate adult supervision
- check with parents/guardians that the child is able to take part from parents/guardians
- consider what insurance cover you need for your event
Coram cannot accept any responsibility for accident, injury, loss or damage as a result of your fundraising activity. We strongly recommend that you have adequate insurance, and that you take all reasonable steps to ensure the safety of all concerned.
Please see entertaining licence information on www.gov.uk or contact your local authority to see if a licence is required for your event.

Transferring money raised to Coram
It’s easy to send us the money you raise after your fundraising. Here are some options:

And don’t forget Gift Aid
Are the people supporting your fundraising tax payers? For every £1 the people they donate, HMRC will give us an extra 25p at no cost to them. So, to help us turn every £1 raised into £1.25, please make sure all of your supporters use Gift Aid.
