Bucket-a-thon Volunteers- Get in to the Festive Spirit

If you enjoy meeting people and can spare a couple of hours you could join our charity collection team. These collections are a vital part of our fundraising activity and take place predominantly at railway and tube stations and supermarkets locally and in central London.

These collections are a vital part of our fundraising activity and take place predominantly at railway and tube stations and supermarkets locally and in central London.

We are looking for volunteers to take a shift at our bucket-a-thon which is taking place all over December. If you can just give 2 hours over the month of December to help us that would be great, help the hospice get to the target of raising £10,000 this festive period. At most collections we are having a choir to sing Christmas carols to help us get in the festive spirit. Feel free to dress up or take part as a group. If you have a group of friends that may want to take part together and do some carol singing let us know!

Please note the list below is subject to change as slots are filled and new slots are added :


Bucket-a-thon is back ! It's that time of year where we ask if all our volunteers could spare us just 2 hours to help us with a bucket collection at a station / supermarket across London. To get in to the festive spirit at many of these events we have a festive choir joining us.  Afternoon collections start from 3pm.
