Location: Euston Station , London, NW1 2HS (see map)

Travel: Euston Square station. Euston Station bus stop.

Start date: 17/12/2019 (one off event)

What will I be doing?

  • Our Christmas station collections are a really fun, flexible and easy way to volunteer to help raise vital funds for our homelessness services across London.

    They provide an opportunity for SHP to raise much-needed funds whilst raising awareness about homelessness and our work across London. They are also a great opportunity for team building/group volunteering
  • You will be part of a team of between 2 and 12 collecting at a central London station

    You will be holding a bucket and/or contactless machine encouraging members of the public to donate to homeless Londoners this Christmas
  • Each day will run between 7:30 and 19:30. They will be split into 2 hour shifts (7:30-9:30, 9:30-11:30, 11:30-13:30, 13:30-15:30, 15:30-17:30, 17:30-19:30).

    We ask volunteers to commit to at least one 2 hour shift

What impact will this have?

  • By volunteering at one station for 2 hours you could help raise over £500.
  • This could help deliver employability training to 150 homeless and vulnerable Londoners, helping them to take the final steps to independence and a fulfilling life.
  • You will also be raising awareness of the charity and our work across London.
