Returning to fundraising activities
We're incredibly grateful to our community for wanting to fundraise during these challenging times. We know our amazing supporters have been taking on challenges in their homes during lockdowns, and with the most recent lockdown easing at different rates across the UK many of you are keen to restart fundraising more publicly. We really need your support to help us continue to fund life-changing research and support anyone living with a brain tumour. Brain tumours haven’t paused during the pandemic, and neither have we.
Below is our guidance to help you keep safe when fundraising during Covid-19, in line with the Fundraising Regulator:
Think through the activity you want to do and what adaptions you might need to make to keep it safe and legal. For example, if you'd like to hold a bake sale, can you ask for donations and deliver the cakes to individual houses using PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) rather than asking multiple households to meet in the same location? If you'd like to ask a hairdresser to shave your head, will you or they provide the correct equipment including the masks and gloves required? Rather than take people with you, you could livestream your head shave online for your friends and family to watch! Don’t forget that any high touch areas such as door handles will need frequent cleaning. Consider whether you can adapt your activity from a physical to a virtual challenge (or a mix of both!) and still get your loved ones involved – competitions, bake offs and dinner parties can all work really well online and online means there is no limit to the number of people who can take part!
We advise that you complete a risk assessment for any activity involving others outside of your household to make sure you are highlighting and mitigating any risks. This doesn’t have to be scary or complicated but writing it down will help you work through your options and help others to feel confident you're keeping everyone safe. There are a lots of tools online to help you including Resource Centre’s guide to risk assessments for community groups. The Association of Event Organisers has produced specific Covid-19 guidance for events which you may also find useful.
Make sure you have all the equipment you need, both for the fundraising itself and for safety to be maintained, and bring extras in case anyone forgets theirs, plus lots of hand sanitiser of course. You could even ask for a donation in return for masks to help boost your fundraising! It’s a good idea to make sure you have a copy of your risk assessment to hand to help answer any questions your loved ones or the public may have about your activity.
The reopening of shops and facilities has brought very mixed feelings across the community. The fact that you might be desperate to see other people in real life doesn’t mean your loved ones feel the same. Also, an individual’s financial circumstances may have changed and they may not be able to support you as they would like to. Please bear in mind that if your activity is taking place in public you will need to take into account the rules of your location, and that these may differ from the minimum legal standards.
We know many people have missed seeing friends and family during the pandemic and also how much hugging means to so many of us. Please do stay within your government’s guidance on distancing and the number of people who are allowed to meet - be mindful that this varies across the UK. You shouldn’t fundraise in enclosed spaces where social distancing can’t be maintained.
