Big Bucket Collection Coordinator
CLIC Sargent’s Big Bucket Collection is held every December as part of Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, which highlights the impact of childhood cancer on families across the UK.
Our volunteer Collection Coordinators play the most important, fun and rewarding role in the Big Bucket Collection, coordinating a collection at a venue in their local area and helping to raise £200,000 for children and young people with cancer.
What does it involve?
Coordinate a collection for CLIC Sargent in your local area this December.
We will match you to a venue close to you – this may be at a supermarket, shopping centre, train station or similar.
Find some family, friends or colleagues to help you, aiming to have somebody collecting at the venue for as much of the day as possible.
You may choose to be at the venue for the whole collection, with your friends joining you at different times to help you collect, or simply start the collection off, arrange a rota for friends to take on shifts during the day and be there at the end to complete the collection.
Be the lead volunteer on the collection day, ensuring all collectors are prepared and equipped to collect.
Take all money raised home with you to count and bank.
Keep in touch with CLIC Sargent and your collector to make sure they are motivated to collect!
Pass on to CLIC Sargent the names and contact details of your collectors (for communication purposes).
Return any unused materials to CLIC Sargent.
How will we support you?
We will send you a full information pack, guiding you on exactly how to coordinate your collection, providing useful tips on how to find people to help you collect and informing you of how to pay in the money you collect.
We will send you all the collecting materials you need.
We will send you regular newsletters keeping you up to date on news about the event.
Our dedicated Event Manager is on hand to answer any questions you have and to help in any way we can.
We can also reimburse travel expenses (in line with CLIC Sargent policy).
You will need to be available for a day in December to coordinate your collection at your local venue. You may even like to take on two days of collecting! You will also need to spend a little time before the collection days asking people to help you collect.
CLIC Sargent is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.
