We want to ensure our pubs are at the heart of the community and that our fundraising, charity items and materials in pubs are consistent and presented correctly. This audit will provide you with guidance to ensure standards for charity activity are followed in your pub. The audit should take approx. 5 minutes to complete. Please be as honest as possible to ensure your pub gets the necessary advice.

Please check all drawings that go up are suitable and continue to inspect them once they are up.

Number of collection tins is dependent to the number of bars and size of your pub. As a guide there should be a collection tin at every till. Collection tins are restriced items. To order more contact CLIC Sargent on, or phone 08451212499

7. Are collection tins secured to the bar with a chain and security seals replaced after the tins are emptied. The security seal is a white sticker that goes on the top of collections tins.

Security seals must be attached every time collection tins are banked. New seals (4 per sheet) can be ordered via POS using code CLICSEALRING.

Collection tins are expensive to replace and most of the time can be made presentable by replacing plugs and labels.

10. Is CLIC Sargent the only national charity that your pub supports?

CLIC Sargent should be the only national charity that is supported by all J D Wetherspoon Pubs (with the exception of the poppy appeal and the Life Boats in seaside pubs.) Therefore pubs should only be supporting other charities if they are a local charity.

11. Does the pub support any additional charities on a local level? If the answer is yes please provide the registered charity number. You can get this number from the charity commission's website: This is crucial as it is the only way that J D Wetherspoon can ensure that it is supporting legitimate charities and without it J D Wetherspoon could be supporting fraudulant causes.


Having a charity champion is a great opportunity to further develop an individuals organisational and event planning skills. Please identify somebody as this is great for succession planning to identify future managers.

12. What is the full name of your pub's Charity Champion?

If your pub does not have a Charity Champion and you would be interested in having one please contact the hotline at or call 0845 121 2499 or contact your charity regional representative. Your Charity Champion hosting events in the pub should be seen as an opportunity to increase sales and an opportunity for the champion to gain useful skills.
