Planning an Event

If you are planning a fundraising event, this page contains resources for you to use to publicise your event.

First of all THANK YOU for helping us help Emma! We would not be able to do this without amazing people like yourself giving time and effort to arrange events in aid of Emma. Size does not matter they all help!!!!!!

Hopefully you’ve got a venue in mind. Please speak to the venue to check their insurance covers your event, it usually does.

Certain type of fundraising requires a licence from the Council e.g. Pub Crawls, Street Fundraising. Please check with your local  Council if you need a licence for the the activity you are planning.
