Collection box

Collection boxes not only help to raise vital funds, they also create awareness of our important work. Your small change can make a big difference.

Collection boxes at work

Collection boxes in shops, offices and other local businesses really help us to hit our fundraising target. We can even claim back gift aid on the amount in each tin through the small donation scheme.

  • Please provide your organisation’s address, and not your home address.
  • If you would like to place a collection box in a local business, please ask an employee to complete the request form.

Collection boxes at home

Did you know that as a country, we have £345 million in loose change in our homes, down the back of our sofas and in our cars? Order a collection box today and put your pennies to good use.

Collecting in public

If you are planning to collect on the street or any other public place you will needs specific permissions, and possibly a licence. Please use our registration form to tell us about your collection in advance. There are a number of guidelines that you need to follow.

Please see our Fundraiser Terms and Conditions for further information.
