We recommend that you purchase a lockable box or safe so that, if you are running a stall or taking donations, you can store the cash in a secure location.

At larger functions, handling the money is a full-time job for one of the organising team. It is good practice for two people to be present whenever cash is handled and, wherever possible, the money should be counted/verified by both people. Everybody should be conscious of security and the possibility of theft.

We recommend having a receipt book for your own records and to give receipts to people who require them (for a donation, for example); books can be bought from most stationary shops. And finally, don’t forget to get plenty of money bags from the bank for all the coins and notes.
