Bag Pack & Collection Coordinators

If you’re great at organising this might be the role for you!  We’re looking for volunteers to help us by organising bag packs and street collections in Banbury and Brackley.  You’ll liaise with supermarkets, find volunteers and ensure everything goes smoothly on the day.  Most of the coordinating can be done from home but you might need to pop into the hospice from time to time.  You’ll be supported by a great team and get experience of coordinating a project.

One event per quarter

Bag Packers & Collectors

Bag Packers and Collectors help us to raise money by taking part in street collections or giving people a hand with their shopping at one of our bag packs.  You’ll need to be able to stand for a couple of hours and to enjoy meeting people and talking about the work of Katharine House Hospice. You can volunteer for just a few hours a year and still make a big difference.
