Local Collection Tin Coordinator
Hours: Fully Flexible depending on you, could be 1 hour a month, could be more!
Location: Remote, within your local Area. (This Boundary will be discussed)
We are looking for Volunteers to coordinate our Fundraising Collection Tins in their local area.
This role involves approaching your local shops/restaurants/pubs etc and asking them to host a Collection Tin on behalf of Paul’s Place. Once they agree, you will build a relationship with the premises and return to collect the tin when it is full and replace it with a newly sealed one along with a Thank you postcard. You will then drop off the full tins to us for counting.
Collection Tin fundraising is a vital source of income for Paul’s Place and this role really will be making a huge difference to the physically disabled adults we support.
The role is fully flexible depending on the time you’d like to give, you could manage one shop or you could manage the whole of your town, it’s completely up to you! So if you are friendly, approachable, honest and trustworthy, we would love to hear from you! It is preferable for you to hold a full driving licence and have use of a vehicle.
This is a remote-based volunteer role, where you can claim expenses for the mileage you have used. We will issue you with an expense form to complete when you deliver the collection tins.
We supply a free enhanced DBS check and training to all our volunteers.
