Elephant Collection Tin Volunteer

Introduction to the Role

We have over 300 collection tins in businesses in Sheffield City Region. We like to make a regular courtesy call to these businesses to check if the collection tins need collecting and replacing with a new one. 

This role involves making phone calls, recirding any changes to contact details, and making a note of boxes that require collecting and a new tin delivering. 

We also require volunteers to co-ordinate collecting the tins from specific post code areas (a car would be required for this role).

Skills required:

A friendly, organised person with a flexible approach who is able to take direction from staff and complete tasks. Computer and telephone skills are required as are good communication skills. 

Time Involved:

2 to 4 hours, once a week. But we are flexible with the time to suit you. 

Where the role is based:

SRSB's Mappin Street Centre in Sheffield or at RSS's Ship Hill Centre in Rotherham. Or in the community if collecting tins.

You can read what our volunteers get out of different roles on our Volunteer Testimonials page.

PLEASE NOTE: We are not currently accepting applications due to the COVID-19 situation, as our centres are closed. When restrictions are lifted we would be very pleased to hear from you.

In the meantime, if you would like us to contact you when our centres reopen, you can email us here: and we will keep your name on record.  

Thank you for your interest in supporting our charity.
