Caring for People in Harrow & Brent

Static Collection Tin Coordinator

Are you friendly, outgoing, confident and a self-starter?  Then apply to join our Fundraising Team as a volunteer and make a difference to people in your local community. This is a brand new, exciting and rewarding opportunity to raise funds, awareness and support for St Luke’s Hospice (Harrow and Brent) by liaising with local businesses and shops in the Harrow and Brent community.

On average in 2021, each static collection tin raised £76 for St Luke’s Hospice.  This could fund 2 home visits to a patient from a Health Care assistant to give practical support with washing, getting ready for bed, dressing, preparing meals, as well as a friendly face and an opportunity to chat.  With your support we could grow this income, box by box.

In addition, volunteering is a great way to: meet new people; gain confidence; make a difference to individuals, communities and society; be part of another community and develop yourself personally by learning new skills.
