If you would like to raise money from your event, you can log your donations by setting up a JustGiving page so people can sponsor you online.
Spread the word
Promote your event at work or school as well as among your family, friends and the local community.
Put up posters, send out invites at school or work, or on community notice boards and ask local businesses to promote them for you.
We may be able to help with publicising your event, either in the local papers or on local radio. If you would like us to do this, please get in touch.
Our Communications team can also offer some post-event publicity if you send us the details and photos of your event.
Keep it safe and legal
When you organise your own fundraising event in aid of Canine Partners, you are responsible for making sure it does not pose any risks to others. That is why we would recommend you do a risk assessment.
You may need to consider taking out public liability insurance for events such as sponsored walks or runs, which will protect you against claims made by third parties. In most cases it is unlikely that Canine Partners’ own insurance policy will cover an event that you have organised. Please check if you are unsure.
For more information, visit the Institute of Fundraising.
If you are planning a fundraising event for children, please also visit the Institute of Fundraising.
Lotteries (including raffles)
Lotteries (including raffles) are complex and the most highly regulated form of fundraising for the sector. Holders of both large and small society lottery licences have to meet a significant number of compliance requirements under the terms of the licence they hold, including meeting conditions regarding safeguarding, age verification and statutory reporting on proceeds.
Only one small lottery licence can be held by a charity or society organisation, and Canine Partners’ licence is held by Chichester District Council the local authority where our Head Office is located.
Canine Partners does not authorise anyone else to apply for a licence in our name.
Groups or individuals who would like to raise funds from a raffle are able to do so by running an ‘Incidental Lottery’. An Incidental Lottery does not require a specific licence and is when the raffle tickets are sold on the same day as the draw or at the event, usually at the location of the draw or event. However, no raffle tickets may be sold in advance of the event. The Gambling Commission is a useful source of information on Incidental Lotteries.
If you have any questions regarding lotteries or raffles, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
