Charity collections


We usually allow charity collections in any of our towns and villages but the following restrictions apply

Along the Thames Path

To collect money on the Thames Path in Runnymede you will need:

The River Thames at Runnymede runs alongside Runnymede Pleasure Grounds. If you want to collect money inside the Pleasure Grounds or in any of our other parks and open spaces which are owned by the Council you will also need the permission of our Green Spaces Team. 

Crown Estate land

If you want to collect money on Crown Estate land, such as The Green at Englefield Green or on the pathways around the lake at Virginia Water you will need a street collections permit from us and permission from The Crown Estate

Hamm Court, Weybridge

Hamm Court is a private estate in Runnymede between Chertsey Meads and Weybridge, on the River Thames, where door to door sales and house to house collections are not allowed.

Virginia Water

The Wentworth Estate Roads Committee has advised that direct debit appeals and commercial clothing collections cannot take place in certain roads in Virginia Water.

Please see our Borough maps for more information under 'business' 'Street trading'.
