Keep it safe and legal

We want your fundraising event to be as much fun as possible, however it's very important that your event is safe and legal. To make sure your event is safe, legal and everyone has a great time, we've put together handy guidelines - please take some time to read this information.

As the organiser of an event, you're responsible for keeping everyone who's involved in your event as safe as possible at all times.
