Volunteering Role: Collection Crew Volunteer (Various locations)
About the opportunity
We are looking for volunteers to help with collections to raise vital funds for research into dementia across the UK. Alzheimer's Research UK, corporate partners and fundraising groups hold collections in all sorts of venues at various times throughout the year; from supermarkets and shopping centres to train stations, concert halls and football stadiums.
At collections, you'll be part of an enthusiastic team of volunteers wearing your orange Alzheimer's Research UK T-shirt with pride and collecting money throughout the location. We're also looking for Collection Coordinator volunteers to help lead our collections.
From time to time collections are held on different weekend dates so you'll be asked your availability and once a collection date is confirmed, morning or afternoon shifts are available on a rota basis. Don't worry, we don't expect you to give up every weekend! Opportunities can have peak or quieter periods and the role can work around your commitments.
