Wednesday 14 February 2018 (All day)

Name of Event: Collection Champions – Valentines and St Patrick’s bucket fundraising for women’s education!

Volunteer Role: A fun and time flexible volunteering opportunity that’s perfect for 2 friends together. Short in length but high in impact. You’ll boost your confidence and communication skills by encouraging commuters, shoppers and revellers to donate. We will provide induction training and coin buckets. All you need to bring is your enthusiasm!

Collection Champions! Time-flexible role to collect donations from the public using buckets and coin boxes at Tube stations on fixed dates to raise money for Wonder Foundation. Wonder Foundation will provide training and buckets (bring your own cupids bows or leprechaun hats!!). Ruth, Wonder’s Fundraising Manager, will meet you with the buckets and give you a quick training and will collect the buckets at the end of each session. Volunteers will not be required to transport or count cash – simply collect it and have fun! Ruth will also be either on site, nearby or available by phone call at all times to offer assistance and support. The minimum and maximum number we can have at any one time is 2, so it’s great for friends who want to volunteer together, but similarly if people sign up alone we can pair them with others.

When & Where:​ Anytime from 08:00 to 20:00. We have exclusive use of each space and timings are flexible. There is a  maximum of 2 people there at any one time but students should get in touch with their availability and we can arrange a schedule accordingly. It could be a whole morning, or an hour or two in the evening, let us know what works for you!

Wednesday 14 February at Leicester Square, Tottenham Court Road and Sloane Square

Saturday 17 February at Piccadilly Circus

Saturday 17 March at Oxford Circus

Volunteer Places: As many as possible! We are restricted to 2 at a time at each station, but as we have from 08:00-20:00 available we can have lots of volunteers to cover different time slots.
