Identify and place collecting boxes in suitable locations. Talk to shop owner etc at location about how the boxes will help Guide Dogs and what we do. Empty boxes every 3-6months and bank the income through the payin book provided, give a receipt and letter of thanks to the hosts. Keep a written record of the location of all boxes for your supervisor, dates they are emptied and the dates/amount banked. If boxes aren't collecting much then move to a better location (your supervisor may ask you to do this). Report any stolen boxes. Spot the potential for further fundraising amongst the box holders for community fundraising.
We will deliver a world class guide dog service as part of a range of mobility services, and work to break down barriers to ensure people who are blind and partially sighted can get out and about on their own terms.
