Professional fundraiser or commercial participator must transfer any money or promises of money raised a benevolent body as soon as possible and certainly within 28 days of receipt.

Trustee duty 

Charity trustees should make sure that any funds the charity is expecting are transferred quickly and with the correct paperwork.

Good practice: funds which are raised for general charitable, benevolent or philanthropic purposes (rather than for a specific charity) should be applied for those purposes as soon as practical.
