CHAS Collecting Can Representative

CHAS collecting can representatives are responsible for placing and collecting fundraising cans from a range of sites including pubs, shops and cafes. People donate to CHAS every day through our network of collecting cans across Scotland. It’s vital that we collect this money, count and bank it so we can then spend the funds on developing our services for children and families.

The aim of this role is to identify locations in which CHAS can place cans, collect cans that are full, empty the cans, count the money and bank it for CHAS. Every pound raised makes a difference to the children and families we support so it’s essential we collect all the money that is being donated across the country.

What activities will I be involved in?

  • Identifying suitable locations for collecting cans to be placed
  • Placing collecting cans
  • Servicing collecting cans (this involves checking that cans are clearly labelled, numbered and sealed).
  • Emptying cans and counting the money
  • Banking the money
  • Keeping a record of all outgoing cans

How much time should I offer?
You can volunteer on any day of the week, in the morning, afternoon or evening. Ideally, you would be available to collect and empty cans at least every twelve weeks.
