Static Collecting Tin Guidelines and Resources

As you know we have been working hard to ensure that we comply with charity law by rigorously adhering to the Institute of Fundraising Codes of Practice.

As a result of this we stopped issuing static collecting tins whilst we put together the necessary documentation needed for us to be brought into line with what is required.

Many of you have helped us with this process and we are so grateful for that.  We learned a lot from the consultation with our volunteers and have made changes with the packs based on some of the advice we received from you.

As a result we have produced two packs for you in relation to static collecting tins:


Pack 1 – Branch and Group Static Tin Pack

These are the guidelines and resources to use if your branch or group wishes to place a static collecting tin in a shop, pub or wherever you have been given the opportunity.

•  Branch and group static tin guidelines
•  Template letter for siteholders to keep
•  Template letter for branch/group to keep


Pack 2 – Fundraiser (Branch and Group) Static Tin Pack

Use these guidelines and resources if you have a fundraiser come to you (who is not a part of your branch or group) who wishes to place and manage a static collecting tin, or a number of static tins in a shop, pub etc, to help with their fundraising or to boost sponsorship for an event.

•  Guidelines for if a fundraiser asks you for a static tin
•  Fundraiser request for a static collecting tin form
•  Guidelines for the fundraiser
•  Letter of authorisation
•  Paying in form
•  Template letter to fundraiser
•  Template written permission
•  Template branch/group contact details for siteholder to keep
