7. Not collect in any public place without first obtaining a collector's license from the local authority.

8. Not collect on private property (including shops, pubs etc.) without obtaining the owner’s permission.

10. Accept that, in the event I have received a guaranteed Railway Children place, no income related to this fundraising can be reallocated to other fundraising products.

12. Fully prepare myself for the physical challenge of the event and not hold Railway Children responsible for any accident, injury or illness sustained.

13. Not do anything to bring Railway Children into disrepute.

14.
