Douglas Town Centre Management is inviting applications from charities wishing to hold street collections and flag days in Douglas town centre in 2018.
Douglas Town Centre Manager Oliver Cheshire said: ‘The regenerated Douglas town centre provides an ideal setting for the many local good causes looking for heightened visibility and to promote their campaigns and services. Douglas Town Centre Management is committed to working with them to enhance their street-collection initiatives and we know that although households’ budgets may be stretched in these difficult economic times, people in the Isle of Man are unfailingly generous when it comes to charitable giving.’
Under the Borough of Douglas General Byelaws 1991, 28 applications will be considered in any one year (not including emergency two-day street collections following a disaster appeal).
Douglas Borough Council will also consider applications for licences in non-town centre areas of Douglas on a first-come, first-served basis.
The deadline for applications for 2018 is Thursday November 9 2017.
