Guide Dogs is seeking local volunteers to become counter top collection box co-ordinators, supporting the charity's Every Penny Counts campaign.
The aim of the campaign is to raise £1m over the next three years, with collection boxes appearing in 40,000 new locations across the UK.
As a Guide Dogs collection box coordinator, volunteers distribute and empty the boxes and deposit donated money. Full training and support to undertake the role is offered and any agreed expenses incurred will be reimbursed. If readers think they can spare an hour a week to help we would love to hear from them.
We also need help finding new counter top locations - perhaps readers know a shop, newsagent, petrol station or other public premises that might be happy to support Guide Dogs by giving one of our collection boxes a new home?
Because Guide Dogs relies almost entirely on voluntary contributions to fund its services, every penny collected helps make a life-changing difference to blind and partially sighted people. If you can help find a location or would like to volunteer as a collection box co-ordinator, please call us on 0870 600 2323.
Thank you for your support.
