Collecting Box Co-ordinator - Guide Dogs (Hove)

Added by VC Brighton and Hove, on behalf of Guide Dogs (Hove)
Brighton, The City of Brighton and Hove, UK

Important: No more volunteers are currently required for this opportunity.

Coordinators place Guide Dog boxes locally as part of their daily life and every few months tally up the funds before paying them in to Guide Dogs. You'll develop relationships with your local shops, businesses and other groups, tell them about Guide Dogs and persuade them to host one of our boxes.

The work will include;

  • Identifying and placing collecting boxes in suitable locations
  • Talking to the shop owner, receptionist etc at the location about how the boxes will help Guide Dogs and what we do
  • Empting boxes every 3-6 months (as they get full) and banking the income through the paying in book provided or branch treasurer. Give a receipt and letter of thanks to the hosts
  • Keeping a written record of the location of all boxes for your supervisor, the dates they are emptied and the dates/amounts banked
  • If boxes aren't collecting much, you'll decide to move them to a better location. Your supervisor may also ask you to remove boxes
  • Reporting any stolen boxes to the local Mobility Team
  • Spotting the potential for further fundraising amongst the box holders for the Community Fundraiser
