We appreciate your support and would like you to be safe. Please make sure you are complying with the appropriate rules and regulations


Food Hygiene:
If your event involves handling food, take care to follow food safety and hygiene rules – ensuring food is safely prepared, stored, handled, and displayed
Raffles at a public event:
Make sure to check with your local council as you may need authorisation or to obtain a lottery licence  to run a raffle at a public event
Data Protection:
Any information kept about the people participating in or attending your fundraising event must comply with the Data Protect Act. Do not keep information about people any longer than you have to and don’t share any of this information with third parties without their permission
As the organiser of the fundraising event, raising funds for Children First Derby, you are responsible for the safety of others. We recommend taking out public liability insurance for events such as sports related events, as you will not be covered by Children First Derby’s policy
