Fifty to the Max: Challenge terms and conditions
By accepting a place in the Fifty to the Max Challenge I agree with PACT and understand that:
Registration and participation
1. I am taking part in a fundraising challenge for businesses to raise as much money as possible for PACT.
2. To participate in the challenge, businesses must register on the PACT website.
3. I will inform PACT immediately if I am unable to take part in the Fifty to the Max Challenge.
4. The challenge will run for one month, from February 1st to February 29th 2024.
5. I understand that I will receive £50 in cash from PACT to take part in this challenge.
6. I understand that the minimum cash/donation amount I must return to PACT at the end of the challenge is £50.
7. Businesses can choose any fundraising activity they like. However, all fundraising activities must be legal and ethical.
8. Examples of fundraising activities that PACT advises participants against include:
- Activities that are illegal or unethical. This includes activities such as gambling, selling illegal goods or services, or engaging in fraudulent activity.
- Activities that are dangerous or unsafe. This includes activities such as stunts, extreme sports, or anything that could put participants at risk of injury unless these activities are being organised and overseen by a suitable qualified individual or organisation.
- Activities that are insensitive or offensive. This includes activities that could be seen as being disrespectful to people.
- Participants should also be mindful of undertaking activities that are not likely to raise much money. This includes activities that are costly to organise or that require a lot of time and effort.
Other advisories and considerations:
- There are specific UK rules regarding running a raffle such as selling raffle tickets for a prize that is worth less than the cost of the ticket. This is a form of gambling and is illegal in the UK. If you are planning to run a raffle we recommend consulting with a PACT employee first.
- Selling food or drinks that have not been prepared in a safe and hygienic environment. This could pose a health risk to participants and could lead to legal liability for the business.
- Holding a fundraising event at a venue that is not accessible to people with disabilities. This would be discriminatory and would go against PACT’s values.
- Promoting a fundraising event in a way that is misleading or deceptive. This could damage both your business and PACT’s reputation and could lead to legal liability for the business.
- PACT also encourages businesses to be mindful of the impact of any fundraising activities on the environment. For example, avoid using disposable materials.
9. I will comply with the fundraising guidance and advice issued by PACT and abide by the Code of Fundraising Practice issued by the Fundraising Regulator.
10. I will not use PACT’s logo without permission.
11. My fundraising will not include:
- a. Raising funds by carrying out door-to-door or unsolicited collections;
- b. Collecting in any public place without obtaining PACT’s authorisation and a street collection licence from the local authority and/or any other licences or consent required;
- c. Collecting on private property (including shops, pubs, etc.) without obtaining PACT’s authorisation and permission of the owner of the private property;
12. I agree that gift aid payments cannot count towards the fundraising total and instead will be considered as over and above the fundraising total.
Donations and payment terms
13. Businesses can collect donations in any way they like.
14. Any cheques, CAF vouchers and Charities trust vouchers must be made payable to ‘PACT’ and sent to the Fundraising Manager, PACT, 7 Southern Court, South Street, Reading, RG1 4QS.
15. PACT encourages participating business’ to set up an account on Enthuse, registering under the Fifty to the Max fundraising challenge. PACT will share a link to set up an account on Enthuse following official sign up to the challenge. By using Enthuse donors will be able to add Gift Aid to their donation automatically.
16. Anyone looking to pay via bank transfer will be provided with PACT’s bank details upon request.

19. I will only use sponsorship forms issued by PACT and not use any other type of sponsorship form (unless otherwise agreed with PACT)
20. Any sponsorship forms will be sent to PACT by the end of the challenge with details of the names and addresses of and amounts donated or pledged by all sponsors. This will allow PACT to process gift aid on donations.
