Collectors should have sealed collecting tins stating which organisation they are collecting on behalf of and should not act in any such manner as to cause, or be likely to cause, danger, obstruction, inconvenience or annoyance to any person.

Anyone aged under 16 years of age is not allowed to act as a collector.

Collections held in Newark are restricted to 19 per year in total. That’s one collection per month during January to April and October and November; two per month during May to September and three during December.

Collections in Southwell and Ollerton are each restricted to 12 per year in total -  usually one per month. When applications are received by the council, the relevant town/parish councils are consulted as to which organisations are to be granted permits on which dates.

Applicants are required within one month of the date of the collection to submit a statement of return showing the amount of money received and the expenses incurred.

If you are approached by a collector, they should have a copy of the permit issued by us. If you are concerned as to the nature of the organisation collecting, please contact us as soon as possible. Collectors can be interviewed to confirm if they are authorised or not.

If you require an application form, please use the link provided on this page.
