HAZOFF is a modest campaign but it still needs funding to get the message across to the thousands of people who need to know about it.

To date we have not found a major sponsor. Many if the HAZOFF’s supporters want to help the campaign, but as individuals they do not have the resources to sponsor it. So we have arranged a facility where we can accept donations. We are only asking for a small contribution of £5 or £10.

Of course larger donations are welcome, and we are still open to sponsorship for the whole campaign.

How to make a donation

You can make a donation by crediting the campaign bank account.

Sort Code: 07-02-46

Account No 22861762


Your donation will be added to the donations page along with the date it was received. The easiest way to check that your contribution has been listed is to make it an odd amount £5.03 or £9.24. Then you can check that your contribution was added to the donations list on the date you made your payment. The chances of two payments for the same odd amount being made on the same day are small enough to make this a workable (and economical) check system.


We would love to thank all donors so please email us at:


 donations@hazardsoff.org.uk


and let us know how much and how you would like your donation credited (e.g. your name, company name, nickname, or something else)

Why does the campaign need donations?

If the campaign is to be successful it needs to achieve the equivalent of ‘herd immunity’. If all the major events positively adopt the HAZOFF policy during a single season, a significant majority of people working in the industry will become aware of it. If not, pockets of ignorance will persist and may ‘re-infect’ the industry/herd.  

That degree of penetration needs publicity. A certain amount can be done cheaply on line, but there is also a need for face-to-face communications at trade shows and events. Publicity materials such as flyers, gate signs, vehicle stickers and badges will help make the message stick. All this costs money.

How much is needed?

In short ‘a couple of grand’ will get the basic message across. If we get more we can get out to the events and help ensure the message is getting to the people who really count, the gate staff, contractors, production crews and traders.

If every supporter contributed £5 or £10 the campaign stands a good chance of achieving its goal this year.

What will be the money be spent on?

It will NOT be spent on labour, no one will be paid for their time; it will NOT be spent on eating and drinking; it will NOT used to fund a summer of ligging in backstage bars. It will NOT be spent on flashy accommodation or first class travel. It will NOT be spent on capital equipment.

It WILL be spent on publicity materials such as posters, flyers, stickers and badges; travel costs at 44p per mile or pleb-class public transport to attend events and festivals; office expenses such as copying and printing, phone calls and postage.

Won’t you just run off into the hills with the cash?

No. But to ensure that there is accountability all expenditure will be listed on the web site. All donors can confirm that their donation has been recorder.

At the end of the season we will show how the money was spent.

Income and expenditure will be audited by the PSA.

Any surplus will be donated to the PSA Welfare and Benevolent Fund.
