Thank you for fundraising for us - you're an HDH Hero!

When fundraising for us you agree to these terms and conditions.

1. You agree to organise fundraising activities as an independent supporter of Helen & Douglas House and therefore you should refer to raising money as ‘in aid of’ HDH not on behalf of HDH.

3. You will be responsible for any costs, taxes, charges or expenses incurred or arising from any connection with your fundraising activity.

4. You accept that any risks related to your fundraising activity are your responsibility, including liability for any injury or loss which may occur to you or any other associated with your fundraising activity. You will therefore take all reasonable precautions to protect the health & safety of all of those associated with your fundraising activity.

5. You will comply with all applicable laws and regulations associated with your fundraising activity, obtaining any necessary licensing, consents or permissions. E.g. If you are holding a street collection, raffle or lottery or proposing to sell alcohol.

6. You acknowledge and accept that Helen & Douglas House’s insurance policy will not cover any activity associated with your fundraising.

8. You agree to pay all of the proceeds from your fundraising activity as soon as possible after the event or collection of the monies (and in accordance to any agreed timescales) and in accordance to Helen & Douglas House’s instructions. You may not deduct any costs unless agreed in writing with Helen & Douglas House.

9. You shall encourage donors and/or sponsors to make gift aid declarations where eligible and practical. This may enable us to recover basic tax on these donations. Further information about gift aid can be found at: https://www.gov.uk/donating-to-charity/gift-aid

Unless Helen & Douglas House has provided you with branded materials as a result of your fundraising registration, you may only use the Helen & Douglas House name, brand and logo with written permission from Helen & Douglas House and in line with the charity’s brand guidelines.
