Street Collecting

If you are collecting money or selling goods for charitable purposes on a street or other public place, you need a street collection permit.

Street Collecting

In issuing street collection permits, we try to make sure that not more than one collection takes place in a particular location in Fenland in any one day.

Apply for a licence

You must apply for a licence at least 1 month prior to the first collection date.


There is no fee payable for a street collection licence.

After you have carried out a collection

You must submit a return of what has been collected, and how much has been passed to the charity after any deductions.

This is a requirement even if no money is collected.

Failure to make a return may result in future collections being refused.
