Collections not only help to raise vital funds – they create awareness of our important work to create a better future for seriously ill children. Your small change can make a big difference to the patients and families at Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH).
The health and safety of all of our supporters is a priority. Due to the current challenges posed by COVID-19 we want to make sure that you're keeping safe whilst planning your event. We have stopped all of our door-to-door fundraising activity, as well as fundraising in private sites. All fundraising activity undertaken by members of the public must adhere to government guidelines around events and social distancing.
There are lots of other ways you can get involved and start fundraising from the comfort of your own home. We've pulled them together here.
Home collection boxes
Home collection boxes are great for collecting loose change around the house.
Put your pennies to good use and order a collection box today.
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:
- 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 so we can be sure that they’re happy to display a collection tin.
- The location where the tin is being held is responsible for the collection and transferring any money to the charity. Our tins have chains on them so that it can be securely fixed, and each is individually numbered
Our collection tins are designed to be used at fixed locations in offices and at shop till points.
