Badge Days are a tool for legitimate charitable organisations to use the public realm to raise awareness and monies for their charity. A Badge Day can be a once off occasion or an annual event.
Examples of regular Badge Days are Legacy Day (first Friday in September), White Ribbon Day (25th November) or Daffodil Day (Cancer – last Friday in August).
Anyone collecting for this purpose requires a Badge Day Permit, available from City of Adelaide.
Fridays are the designated days that Charities are permitted to conduct their Badge Day. Should a Public Holiday fall on the Friday, the Badge Day will be held on the last working day prior to the public holiday.
