The following guidlines have been put together for your benefit.

We want your fundraising event to be an enjoyable experience as well as being safe and legal.

Authority to fundraise.

The event must be conducted in accordance with all applicable laws.

Prior to organising and conducting a fundraising event in the name of South East Radiotherapy you must be 18 years or over (if under 18 years of age, you will need permission from a parent/guardian.

Prior approval must be sought from SERT for any printed materials, advertisements,media materials and releases associated with the event and the official SERT logo must be used.

Sealed collection buckets displaying the official SERT logo must be used to collect money and will be supplied by us.

Permits.

For any event being held outside your home or in the external venue, you should check with your local Garda station to see if you need a permit.  Usually if you are holding an event on public property, for example a street collection, you will need a Garda permit. If the event is on private property, you won’t need a garda permit but you will need permission from the owner of the property. For any large event it is best to notify the local station of the details just to make them aware of the event.

A permit will also be required for raffles held in a public place.

How we can help.

  • We will promote and publicise your event on our website.
  • We will provide you with collection buckets.
  • We can provide representation at the event if necessary.
  • After the event some fundraisers like to hold a ‘cheque presentation ceremony’ with a photographer present. We will endeavour to provide representation at this ceremony if requested (and if reasonable notice is given), in order to acknowledge and thank fundraisers for all their time,effort and support of South East Radiotherapy Trust.

We are happy to offer advice and guidance for coordinating your event; however the overall running of the event, including expenses, record keeping and management is ultimately the fundraiser’s responsibility. Please refer to our website: www.sert.ie.
