When you’re organising a fundraising event of any kind it’s important to identify potential risks so that everyone involved stays healthy and safe.
The Ramblers relies on your generous support so stay safe while fundraising and together we can help in the fight for walkers’ rights, protecting our green spaces and ensure that everyone gets to enjoy the benefits of being outdoors.
Identify all the potential hazards that might cause harm to yourself and/or others at your fundraising event by following these steps:
You could also contact your local council for resources, advice and guidance within your local community, or search online for template risk assessment forms, for example, Healthy Working Living.
By organising your own fundraising event in aid of the Ramblers, you are responsible for taking adequate steps to make sure that the event poses no risk to others. Check that any buildings or equipment that you hire are covered. Insurance is often included in the hire fee but not always so it is best to check.
You may need to consider arranging public liability cover for some events, which will protect you against claims made by third parties for injury or property damage as a result of negligence. In most cases, for public and/or hazardous events, you may need public liability cover in place. For private events this may not be necessary. Please get in touch with us if you are unsure.
The Ramblers is unable to provide public liability cover for your event, but if you do have any questions, give us a call on 020 3961 3300 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
The Ramblers accepts no liability for third-party events. The advice given is not exhaustive, it is simply for guidance to help you organise your event, so please consider other potential risks, and seek further advice where required.
