The Sickle Cell Society’s work has always depended on voluntary fundraising and donations without which it would have achieved nothing. Much more work needs to be done and the Society is always pleased to receive offers of help with fundraising and appreciates the personal sacrifice that this involves.
In order that fundraising should be successful, the public who contribute must have confidence that their money is being used for the relief of sickle cell and not for any other purposes. If the public is not confident of this, then the source of funds will dry up and the work of the Society will suffer.
So, in order to retain public confidence, the Society has to insist that the organisers of fundraising events comply with certain conditions. In the long run, failure to comply will do more harm than good to the cause of relieving suffering from sickle cell.
The conditions are:
b)contains the name and address of the Sickle Cell Society, charity registration number and;
c) does not contain any misleading information about the manner of which receipts are to be appropriated.
