Support volunteer (research)

Your support is invaluable

In response to Covid-19, and going forward, we need volunteers to help us manage our collection tins that are situated across the North West. We need to ensure that we are able to access funds that have been donated to us by our generous supporters and we are undertaking a full review of our tin locations to make sure we have all the information need to make decisions about our tin collection strategy.

If you have any questions or would like to find out more, please email or call our head office on 0800 587 4570.


Phase 1 objectives

  • Need to research up to date contact details for approximately 2000 of our tin hosts
  • Need to make contact with all of the sites, approximately 4000, that currently host collection tins

  • Our calling team will reach out to each tin site to collect info for our review project – you’ll find out if the site has a tin if they need it emptying, and if they want to support our charity further.
