Do you need to contact Bathgate accident claim solicitors after being hurt whilst raising funds for charity?
Although some charitable and non-profit organisations are partially funded by the Government, many charities rely on fundraisers to help them bring in much needed income. Without people raising money for these charities, it’s unlikely that they could continue to carry out the work they do.
Fortunately, many people around the country are keen to contribute. In addition to donating to good causes, many people also commit to raising funds for their chosen charities. Some people raise sponsorship money by undertaking sporting events, such as marathons or mountain climbing, whilst others host events, such as galas and coffee mornings.
Of course, however you choose to raise funds for your chosen charity, you must ensure that you do it in a safe way. If you choose to raise sponsorship by taking part in a marathon, you may want to register for an official, organised event so that you’re able to run safely, without fear of being hit by a car or vehicle. In addition to this, taking part in an organised event means that medical staff should be on hand if you are unwell or injured during the race. Often, their assistance can help to ensure that you’re able to finish the race, rather than having to give up due to injury.
If you’re not able to take part in an organised event, you’ll want to ensure that you plan your event well in advance so that you can take any necessary safety precautions. If, for example, you’re planning on raising funds by taking part in a bike ride, you may want to plot the route so that you avoid busy areas during rush hours. This could make it easier for you to cycle and it could help to prevent you from getting involved in a collision of some sort. You’ll also want to ensure that you have access to any necessary safety equipment.
Whilst making money for a good cause is always admirable, you shouldn’t put yourself in danger to try and do so. If you need additional help with safety arrangements, you may want to approach a local company and see if they are willing to sponsor you.
If you are hurt whilst fundraising, you may find that Bathgate accident claim solicitors are able to help you to make a compensation claim against those responsible. If, for example, a vehicle did collide with you whilst you were running or cycling and you can prove that you’re not at fault, Bathgate accident claim solicitors may be able to assist you in making a compensation claim.
