Flag day applications invited for 2020

Thursday, 12 September 2019 07:27

Douglas Town Centre Management is inviting applications from charities wishing to hold street collections and flag days in Douglas town centre in 2020.


Douglas Town Centre Manager Oliver Cheshire said: ‘Town centre street collections are a great way for charities to gain greater visibility and promote their work to a wider audience. There are so many local good causes working hard to deliver their services at a time when charitable giving is coming under increasing pressure, so we’re always pleased to support them in whatever way we can.’


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.


For more information and application forms search ‘Licensing’ here or ‘Charitable Collections and Flag Days’ here.


The deadline for applications for 2020 is Friday November 8, 2019.
