Bucket collection volunteer

Why we need you?

Leukaemia UK is the UK’s leading leukaemia research and care charity, dedicated to discovering better treatments and ultimately a cure for leukaemia and other blood cancers.

Bucket collections are not only a great way to raise much needed funds for the charity, but they also help us reach a wide number of people who have never heard of us before.

What will you be doing?

You will be joining our team at London’s central tube stations, holding a collection bucket and engaging with the public to secure donations. On the day you will be representing the charity in a friendly and approachable manner.

What skills are required?

  • A confident and positive attitude
  • A willingness to engage with the public
  • Reliability and punctuality

When and where?

We have a range of collections throughout the year and usually ask for 2 to 3 hours of your time.

What support will you receive?

  • A full brief and induction prior to the event
  • A contact at Leukaemia UK who will be with you on the day
  • A collection bucket and/or an iZettle machine to collect contactless card payments
  • A t-shirt and charity bag (for your belongings) for on the day and to keep as a memento

What we offer you

  • We will provide a hot drink, pastries and water for all morning collections
  • We can provide references either for potential employers or for your LinkedIn profile
  • For student bursaries we will complete volunteering forms
