89.Part 2 regulates fundraising not just for bodies on the Scottish Charity Register, but for all benevolent bodies and charitable, benevolent and philanthropic purposes. Benevolent bodies are defined as any bodies established for charitable, benevolent or philanthropic purposes, whether they are actually charities or not. This means that many bodies which may have charitable purposes but do not provide a sufficient level of public benefit or may have chosen not to be restricted by the added regulation which falls upon charities, may, for instance, undertake public collections or fundraise (as long as they are transparent and do not claim to be charities).
90.Section 79 sets out a number of definitions which relate to Part 2. Section 80 also clarifies that any reference to representation or solicitation in Part 2 refers to any manner of representation, e.g. oral, written or in a statement published in a newspaper, film or radio or television programme.
