Busking for Brake and street collections

Laura BroadheadA great way to raise awareness about road safety is to be out on the busy streets in your Brake t-shirt, either busking or standing and asking for donations.

Not only is this a great way to fundraise, it's great awareness raising of the need for road safety in your community.  Although it may seem like a daunting task, it's actually a simple way to raise money to support the charity and raise the charity's profile. 

What you need to do
Apply for a licence from your local council to hold your street collection on a particular date. You could be fined £200 if you collect money for charity without a licence.

Contact Brake to request your collection tins, buckets and letter of authorisation.

Gather together a group of people to collect with you. The more the merrier! Make sure you make an impact. Maybe dress up? Or wear a Brake t-shirt? Why not organise some street entertainment? (Talk to local musicians, dance groups etc). Whatever you do, make sure you comply with the rules of your street collection licence. 

For more information call Joe on 01484 550060, email fundraise@brake.org.uk or complete a short online form.
