Finding Inspiration in Every Turn

The charity has the flexibility to organise and engage in fundraising events, but it's important to note that there are regulatory guidelines and recommendations governing such activities for charitable organisations. At MYCM, we possess the necessary experience and expertise to provide guidance and support for charities in ensuring compliance with these fundraising event regulations.
