Collections

Collections not only help to raise vital funds; they also create awareness of our important work. Your small change can make a big difference! 

Collection boxes

These are great for collecting loose change around the house. Or, if you’re organising a fundraising event, why not put one of these on each of the tables, to encourage people to donate their spare change?

Put your pennies to good use and order a collection box today.

Collection tins

Last year, collection tins in shops, offices and other local businesses helped us to raise over £70,000.

When ordering your collection tin, please remember that…

 
  • If you work at the organisation, provide the organisations’ address, and not your home address.
  • If you don’t personally work at the organisation, ask a member of staff to complete the form on your behalf.
  • The location where the tin is being held is responsible for the collection and transferring any money to the charity. Chains will be sent with the tin, so that it can be securely fixed.

If you’re holding a fundraising event, please order a collection box or bucket. Unfortunately, our collection tins are only to be used in offices and at shop till points.

Collection buckets

Bucket collections are a really simple and effective way to raise money.

If you haven’t done so already, please let us know about your collection, and order your bucket, by emailing fundraising@gosh.org or calling 020 3841 3131.
