Hi. I am not sure if they recycling company is
A commercial partnership or a professional fundraiser? It has 3 charities all of which get a set amount on the textiles coming in. Regardless of amount. It is a ltd company just like all commercial partners.
In appealing on behalf of a charity,
charities or charitable cause for money or other property,
professional fundraisers will need to indicate clearly:
for whom they are fundraising;
if there is more than one institution, the proportions in which
the institutions are respectively to benefit;
how payment to them is calculated; and
how much they will be paid in connection with the appeal, or as accurate an estimate as is reasonably possible in the circumstances.
In carrying out a promotional activity for a charity, charities or charitable causes, for money or other property, commercial participators will need to indicate clearly:
which charities or charitable causes will benefit from the promotional venture;
if there is more than one institution, the proportions in which the institutions are respectively to benefit; and
how much of the proceeds from the promotional venture will go to the charity, charities or charitable cause(s), or give as accurate an estimate as is reasonably possible in the circumstances.
Question 1 .)This was taken from the docs provided (charities act 2006), I think the recycling company is a commercial partner?. Because on the tra under textiles banks (Explained previously) it has 2 terms which are required by law. One for a license for the banks and the other to show solication statements which are what the 3 bullet points listed above show, a 'commercial partnership' .
Question 2) So once againe I will review the following points feel free to add any comments each is correct/incorrect
2a)One the first bullet point on solication statements it states "which charities or charitable causes will benefit from the promotional venture".
This is easy show the charities logo along with the fundraising standards tick and there charity number. Correct, sorted??
2b)"if there is more than one institution, the proportions in which the institutions are respectively to benefit". As you stated previously the recycling company does not no how much it is going to make, so I will state that the recycling company gives ££££ a month to the chosen charity (The charity in which the main purpose of the textile bank is for, it is livered in the design etc...) Therefore that this question in now answered, as the 'institution' (being the recycling company?)does not no how much it is going to benefit/loose. However I will also write after how much we give to charity, that details on our profits and were/how the clothes are recycled/reused is available on our website or alternative ring 080034344653653 etc.. This would be better? As this gives even more clarity, and is perfectly legal? Not only is this stating the charity's amount but giving details on our profits, and how we recycled clothes etc....?
2c)"how much of the proceeds from the promotional venture will go to the charity, charities or charitable cause(s), or give as accurate an estimate as is reasonably possible in the circumstance". This is easy, as I have already mentioned. "I will put the recycling company gives ££££ to the charity ever month from the sale of the clothes". In this case it is allways guaranteed, not even an estimation.
3)Reply back to your previous question 4.
Yes that great, its clairified a lot. So even if say I have a 2 pinks banks next to each other. When the customer is looking at them, mine has all different stickers, logo's, etc... It is not classed as copying.
But what I don't get is when they state has "deliberately copied that of legally compliant competitor's containers in order to confuse textile donators and gain a share of the textiles". How do you do this then?? But how does this differ to, 2 pink textiles banks>??
Does this mean without the labels? Literally 2 pink banks that Is copying
4.)I will be putting the charities number as in solicitation statements the first bullet point states that 'which charity will benefit', so I will be putting the charities registered number to be safe etc... When I put the recycling company's logo (Although nothing states that I have to put this), should I also put there registered company number ??
Thank you very much for all your help.
This is great info, as dealing with supermarkets, councils etc.. Want to get any info 100% correct! Thanks. We are nearing the end of the questions:
