We want you to have fun while fundraising but please note it is the organiser’s responsibility to ensure an event is safe and complies with any relevant regulations such as food hygiene, first aid cover and liability insurance. Information on temporary event licences is available from the council licensing team.

Please contact our Communications Manager at communications@winternightsheltermk.com to let us know what you are planning so we can provide support, and please let us know how you get on. Send us some photos from your event, and of course the money! Thank you for your support.
