Re-Blog – “Charities: Don’t Mention the Olympics in 2012”

July 30, 2011

Many charities might well be planning an Olympic-themed fundraising event next year.  Well beware!   Howard Lake has written a fantastically useful blog post in HuffPost UK warning that almost every word you might possibly want to use (even “gold”, “Games”, and most ridiculously of all “2012” have been listed in LOCOG’s guidance of words which cannot be used without infringing The London Olympic Games and Paralympic Games Act 2006.  Who even knew THAT existed?

Read his post at     http://www.huffingtonpost.co.uk/howard-lake/charities-dont-mention-th_b_910769.html   and avoid injunctions, damages, and criminal proceedings.

I’m in the middle of developing a new training course on “Advanced Bid-Writing Skills” and some thoughts from that will appear in this blog shortly.
