There is no minimum age to fundraise for us, but we ask that a parent or guardian registers anyone under 16.

Certain fundraising activities do have minimum ages, for example:

Collection box collectors must be 16 years of age or over.
For licensed lotteries, including raffles, children under 16 cannot buy or sell tickets.
Children under 16 cannot count collected money.

We have physical materials such as collection tins, t-shirts, balloons and stickers. Any unused materials should be returned to the Charity after your event. Some of these items, such as collection tins, buckets and banners will be on loan to you and will need returning after your event to:
Manchester Foundation Trust Charity, Citylabs 1.0, Maurice Watkins Building, Nelson Street, Manchester M13 9NQ.

We also have a selection of downloadable materials to help with your fundraising. Find them here.

Unfortunately, we don’t currently have any merchandise for you to sell at your event. However, we can provide you with materials to help you brand your event. Please email us to request your materials. 

If you have registered to fundraise for us you can use our logo, but any use of our logo must be approved by the Charity before being used or printed in any materials or publications. Please email a draft of your intended publication using our logo to your contact within the Charity team, for approval.

To request a copy of our logo, and for further guidance regarding the use of our logo, please email your contact within the Charity team.

If you have not yet registered your fundraising, please complete our online registration form.

Please get in touch with your Charity contact to see whether this is a possibility. If we are able to, we will support you. 

Unfortunately, we cannot contact our celebrity supporters and patrons on your behalf. However, if you have a personal connection to a celebrity, you are welcome to get in touch with them.

Letting as many people as possible know about your fundraising is the best way to make it a success! You can create a JustGiving page and shout about it on your social media pages. We can’t always promote individual fundraising events on our Charity social media accounts, but if you tag us from your own social media we will do our best to like, share and comment where we can.

You can also get your local community involved and share information of your fundraising via WhatsApp to spread the word! 

Data protection laws mean we cannot share supporter data with fundraisers in order for you to promote your event.

You are more than welcome to fundraise for multiple charities, as long as the split of money between charities is clear to all those donating, and the Charity is informed when you register with us.

We love to meet our supporters and organise cheque presentations to commemorate their achievement. However, we cannot always offer this and so this will be arranged on a case-by-case basis. Please get in touch with your Charity contact for more information.
