The Legal Bits

It is really important that the people you are seeking donations from completely understand where the money goes. When describing who you are raising money for, please state our charity name “Swansea Bay Health Charity, Registered Charity Number 1122805”


Just Giving
Just Giving is an excellent way to raise money in the cashless society we live in today and your link can be easily shared on your social media platforms.
When setting up your page, use this link to take you to our official JustGiving page https://www.justgiving.com/abmulhb When writing your story, if you mention which fund you are raising money for and the fund code (we can give you this), our finance department will know where to credit the funds raised once the page has been closed.

Liability
Please make sure that it is clear that you are fundraising in aid of Swansea Bay Health Charity
The Charity cannot accept any responsibility for your event or anyone who participates in it. If your event involves the general public we advise you to seek advice regarding public liability insurance. There is a range of companies who can provide this.

Handling cash and sending in your donation
You can pay in your donation online at Enthuse https://swanseabayhealthcharity.enthuse.com/donate
If you are making your donation by cheque, please make it payable to ‘Swansea Bay University Health Board” and write your name and address on the back of the cheque and the fund you wish the donation to be credited to. You can then post it to: Swansea Bay Health Charity, 1 Talbot Gateway, Baglan, Port Talbot, SA12 7BR

Gift Aid
Donating through Gift Aid means we can claim an extra 25p for every £1 you give. It will not cost you any extra.
Charities can claim Gift Aid on most donations, but there are strict rules relating to it. Gift Aid cannot be claimed on ticket sales, raffle ticket sales, winning auction bids or anything other than an individual donation.

Third party data handling

As part of your fundraising you may come into contact with personal data and information belonging to people involved in your activity. You are responsible for ensuring that any paper or electronic data you hold complies with the Data Protection Act 2018. As a rule of thumb, keep any data you have stored securely and safe from loss, damage or unauthorised access. Do not keep data for any longer than you need it and do not share information about someone without their permission.

Raffles and lotteries
Holding an auction or raffle is a great way of generating funds with minimal costs. There are strict laws relating to all lotteries and raffles so please be sure that you are familiar with these and operate your auction or raffle accordingly. There may be circumstances when a license may be required.
