Travel: Wimbledon station. Wimbledon Station bus stop.

What will I be doing?

  • Collecting at stations is an amazing way to raise funds that support people who have been homeless or who are vulnerably housed.
    A couple of hours of your time could help pay for services such as counseling or our psychological wellbeing service.
  • Some of our collections have allowed us to have a carol singing choir so you could get involved as an individual or join is as a complete choir!
  • We're looking for a couple of hours of your time, the busiest times are when people are going into and out of work but we have permission to collect all day so we can be flexible.

What impact will this have?

  • Homelessness and rough sleeping in London are on the rise, and our work is needed more than ever. With your help, we can provide accommodation and support services to some of London’s most vulnerable people, enabling them to move on to independent living and achieve their full potential.
  • Every penny raised will help to rebuild a homeless person’s life.
  • As a collection volunteer you will be supporting the fundraising team to not only raise money but also raise awareness about our services across London.
