We Are A Charity

As a registered Charity, we have to comply with the requirements of the Charity Commission as well as ensuring that we are both honest and transparent with our donors.

To that end we have agreed a way of handling donations that meets these objectives.

When a volunteer attends any fund raising activity and is handed a donation that is not in a sealed Cornwall Bloodbikes collection pot, they will place the money into a tamper proof bag and seal it.

This bag remains sealed and tracked until it is counted. All donations are opened and counted by two committee each month.
If they do not have a bag, then they will make an arrangement to collect the cash at a later date or give details of our account to the collection organiser so that they may pay the money in themselves.
A receipt will be given for all money taken by a volunteer, providing you piece of mind that your donation is on the way to helping your community.
Our volunteers are happy to accept cheques and sealed Cornwall Blood Bikes collection pots as well as cash, provided that they have a transport bag and seal.
Volunteers are often asked by organisers of events to count the money raised.
We do not allow our volunteers to do this, as it conflicts with the need for the reckoning to be independently verified.
We realise that this can disappoint organisers, but it is an important part of the way that we handle Charity money.
