Collections boxes are a vital way to raise funds and they also create awareness of our important work. Your small change can make a big difference.
Could you collect your small change at home? Can you imagine how much money is lost down the back of our sofas and in our cars? According to research by the Halifax the average amount of money hiding in your sofa is £1.61 which amounts to a staggering £42m across the UK! Order a Homebox today and put your pennies to good use.
Once your box is full simply bring it to the hospice and we will replace it for you. Alternatively empty the box at home, count your coins and send us a cheque for the equivalent, payable to Harris HospisCare.
Collection boxes in pubs, shops and businesses
Collection boxes in pubs, shops and businesses raised a total of £7,500 for the hospice in 2010/11. We are always looking for more outlets for these boxes too so if your own a business or know someone who may be able to help please contact contact Christine Davies, Fundraising Manager on 01689 825755 or by email.
Collection box volunteers
We have a team of volunteers who replenish the boxes in our community, however we are looking for more willing volunteers to join the team. Do you have some free time to give? Please contact Christine Davies for more information or download an application form here.
Collecting in public
We regularly holds collections at gardens centres and supermarkets and need more volunteers to help with holding a box or bag packing at the checkouts. If you would like to help please contact Christine Davies, Fundraising Manager on 01689 825755 or by email.
