East Sussex WRAS has collection tins and buckets available for fundraising and form a valuable part of our fundraising effort to keep our charity sustainable for the future.
Collection tins can be used in a variety of ways including at funerals, shop counters, retirement parties, sponsorship and fundraising events, coffee mornings and much more.
East Sussex WRAS is registering with the Fundraising Regulator and as such it is important that those fundraising on behalf of WRAS do so in a legal, ethical and responsible way.
You can download a copy of our Code of Best Practice here.
Details of the Fundraising Regulators Code of Fundraising Practice can also be read here.
In addition to WRAS's code of best practice there are some important points to remember when using Collection tins:
- You must have the land / property owners permission. If in a public location you may need a street collection licence from the local council.
- You need to ensure the location is safe and the tin unlikely to be tampered with or stolen.
- You must ensure the collection tin is not opened or the seal broken.
- Tins should be returned to WRAS as soon as possible or if a permanent / long term (e.g. on a shop counter) they should be changed every 3 months.
- In the event of a tin being stolen, damaged or tampered with East Sussex WRAS should be contacted immediately.
- It is your responsibility to look after the collection tin, and ensure its safe return to East Sussex WRAS.
