Red House Box Ambassadors

Red House boxes (RHB) are our charity collection boxes that we have in the local community. This role involves volunteers managing an area or a high street and keeping a check on the existing boxes and replacing them when required. This includes local shops, pubs, businesses etc.

Once collected and replaced the box should be dropped back to the hospice. The role is very flexible and is based within your local area. You will be given all the equipment and support needed.

 Main Activities/ Tasks:

-           Managing a particular area or a high street.        

 -           Keeping a regular check on the existing boxes and replacing when required.

 -           Work on your area sheet and try to approach and place new boxes in local shops, pubs, businesses etc.

 -           We pledge to collect; replace and resolve any RHB query in a week and with the support of our wonderful volunteers have been successful so far.

 -           Any collected RHB has to be dropped to the head office as soon as possible, ideally the next day. However, the role is very flexible and you can manage and collect the boxes working around your schedule, work from home and liaise with the team via email or phone. Our team will provide a detailed area sheet and all the office support.
