Charities wishing to hold street collections and flag days in Douglas in 2015 are invited to apply now to Douglas Development Partnership.
Douglas town centre manager Michelle O’Malley said: ‘Even when household budgets are under pressure, the people of the Isle of Man are unfailingly generous when it comes to supporting local charities. Street collections are a great way for a charitable organisation to engage with the public and promote its campaign, perhaps by staging an event around their collection day in the town centre.’
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).
Application forms are available from Michelle O’Malley at Douglas Development Partnership’s office in Chesterfield House, Victoria Street, Douglas.
Applications for 2015 must be received by Tuesday November 12th 2014.
