Charis Cancer Care
About the Volunteer Opportunity
Charis Cancer Care are a registered charity, offering a range of holistic and complementary therapies to individuals affected by cancer, either via diagnosis, a loved ones diagnosis or bereavement.
All of our services are offered free of charge, and we rely heavily on donations from the general public, fundraisers and local businesses to help us continue offering our services across Northern Ireland.
A part of our fundraising efforts is via the countertop moneyboxes, typically placed at till-points in shops and shopping centres. With Covid-19 meaning all other fundraising events were postponed or cancelled, we now rely more than ever on these other smaller fundraising efforts to help us generate the £380k needed to cover operational costs of Charis each year.
We are seeking volunteers to help us manage the monthly collection and donation deposit of these moneyboxes.
There is no set minimum or maximum no. of locations you must look after, and you choose your own time and hours on when suits you best to collect the donations each month.
The volunteer will agree to an area/areas that suits their location to do monthly collection of countertop moneyboxes, and submit via coin counters in Danske bank locations. Volunteer will be responsible for recording and reporting all donations made to the fundraiser. The volunteer will also have the choice to secure new locations for placement of Charis Cancer Care moneyboxes were deemed suitable with the fundraiser.
