Sooty Box Volunteer

Are you friendly and outgoing? We need you to visit local shops, pubs and leisure centres to pick up our full Sooty collection boxes, replace them with new boxes, count the money that has been kindly donated by the public and take the money to the bank.

It takes about 2 hours to empty 4 of our Sooty collection boxes. This income would pay for a youngster with sight loss to spend a day on one of our vacation schemes trying new leisure activities and making new friends.

It takes about 8 hours to empty 12 boxes. This would help us identify the right equipment and support for a blind or partially sighted child to get the most out of their schooling.

Your time will open doors for youngsters with sight loss - so much of what we do at RNIB is driven by Sooty!

We urgently need people like you with flexible 'Sooty-time' to give.

Your 2 hours can be given weekly, or monthly, on the days that you choose - giving you the flexibility you need. You can empty the boxes and bank the income - or you may prefer to concentrate on finding new homes for them - the choice is yours.

Our 'Sooty-time Givers' also need looking after - and if you have experience of looking after small teams and helping new team members feel welcome - then there is a warm welcome here for you too.
