Collection Tin Coordinator

We are looking for passionate volunteers to help raise vital funds by placing and maintaining collection tins in local shops and businesses

Location: Can be based anywhere across the UK

Time: This role is really flexible and can fit around other commitments. We do expect Collection Tin Coordinators to collect and bank approximately every three months.                                                                                                                                

The opportunity:

We are looking for passionate volunteers to help raise vital funds by placing and maintaining collection tins in local shops and businesses. This rewarding, flexible and effective volunteering opportunity is a wonderful way to play a huge part in helping to increase public understanding, breaking down the stigma of dementia and supporting the vital work to overcome it within your local community. You’ll be an ambassador for the charity, engaging your local community in your naturally friendly and enthusiastic way.

What will I be doing?

  • Distribute collection tins to shops and businesses in your local area.
  • Source new or better locations for collection tins and develop strong relationships with venues.
  • Ensure the upkeep of the collection tins by keeping in contact with locations providing replacement labels, seals and tins when necessary.
  • Empty, count, bank and record donations from the tins (approximately every three months) and provide a receipt of thanks to the shop owner.
  • Provide simple, yet accurate, records of banking details and information to the local Regional Fundraising Officer.
  • Distribute and encourage venues to display posters and volunteering opportunities.

 

 

The benefits:

In return, as a collection tin coordinator you’ll benefit from:

  • Becoming part of a movement that believes we can make breakthroughs possible.
  • The opportunity to develop your leadership, communication, fundraising, and organisational skills.
  • Full support and guidance from your local regional fundraising officer.
  • Receive your very own collection starter pack which includes all the fundraising materials you’ll need.
  • Having your expenses paid within agreed guidelines.

About you:

You do not need to have previous volunteering experience, ideally you will bring with you some of the following:

  • Good knowledge of the local area and a sense of community.
  • A positive and proactive attitude.
  • Confidence in talking to shop and business owners.
  • Honesty and reliability.
  • Numeracy and attention to detail.

If this sounds like you and you’re looking for an opportunity that is fun and rewarding, then apply today!
