Keeping it safe & legal

We don’t want anything to stand in the way of your event being a great success so don’t forget some of the practical considerations to ensure that it is safe and legal.

Licences & Insurance

Whilst we are here to help you organise and plan your fundraising, you are responsible for your event and Kidney Research UK cannot accept liability.

Don’t forget about a risk assessment to ensure you’ve got things covered. You should check that buildings and equipment your hire are covered (insurance is often included in the fee) and you may need to consider arranging public liability cover for some events. Please seek advice if you are unsure.

We also suggest that you check if any special licences are required (for example, if you are selling alcohol, or your activity involves showing a film or has live music) – check with your local authority.


If you’re planning on collecting money in a public space you’ll need a license (check with your local authority). You should also have two unrelated people count the money.

Food hygiene

You need to take care when handling food and work to basic rules for safe preparation, storage, display and cooking. There’s more information available from the Food Standards Agency.


Raffles are a great way of raising money, but it’s important to be aware of the legalities and whether you’ll need a license for your event. You can check the latest information and advice at the gambling commission.
