Fundraisers can produce their own promotional material in support of their fundraising event.
Such material should always state that Over and Above is a registered charity number 1051463 and include the charity logo (available on request). You should state clearly the purpose for which the funds are to be raised. It is requested that all promotional material be cleared with our fundraising office before they are used.
