Current Volunteering Opportunities

Volunteer Christmas Street Collector:
Share this volunteering opportunity
Location: Brighton
Hours per Week: N/A
Closing Date: Thursday 20 December 2018 9.00am

BHT are looking for volunteers for our annual street collection, taking place in December 2018 across Brighton & Hove.

This year, we’re expanding our collection sites and need as many volunteers as possible to come along and help collect donations. It’s a fantastic opportunity to meet new people, spread some festive cheer and help raise money for BHT’s First Base Day Centre.

We are looking for help on:

Friday 21 December, 4pm – 7pm outside Brighton Rail Station
Saturday 22 December, 9am – 1pm across various sites in Brighton TBA


All you need to do is spare a few hours, hold a collection bucket and spread some festive cheer. We’re also encouraging our volunteers to wear something festive – a Christmas jumper, hat, tinsel, a Santa suit – it’s up to you. Some of our sites will be joined by local choirs and we’re encouraging everyone to get involved and sing along to the festive songs. Once your shift is over then you can warm up at our London Road office with a hot drink and mince pie.

This role would suit a friendly, welcoming person who enjoys being part of a team and working within their local community.

Get in touch
