Purple Pot Ambassadors- Haven House Children's Hospice

Haven House Childrens Hospice

About the role

Purple Pots are our charity collection boxes that we have in the local community. This role involves volunteers managing an area or a high street and keeping a check on the existing boxes and replacing them when required. This includes local shops, pubs, businesses etc. Once collected and replaced the box should be dropped back to the hospice. The role is very flexible and is based within your local area. You will be given all the equipment and support needed.

Main tasks and responsibilities

  • Managing a particular area or a high street.         
  • Keeping a regular check on the existing boxes and replacing when required.
  • Work on your area sheet and try to approach and place new boxes in local shops, pubs, businesses etc.
  • We pledge to collect; replace and resolve any RHB query in a week and with the support of our wonderful volunteers have been successful so far.
  • Any collected RHB has to be dropped to the head office as soon as possible, ideally the next day. However, the role is very flexible and you can manage and collect the boxes working around your schedule, work from home and liaise with the team via email or phone.
  • Our team will provide a detailed area sheet and all the office support.

Benefits for volunteers

  • This volunteer role can be done very much as and when the volunteer has time, as our boxes are changed approximately every two-three months.
  • They can also get to know the local businesses in their community.

What skills do I need?

Skills, attributes, experience and qualifications

  • Good communication and customer care service skills
  • Being able to work with the general public
  • Being flexible.
  • Two references required - one personal (who has known you for two years) and one professional. If you have difficulty we can review this on a case by case basis.
  • The average length of recruitment is one to two months. This very much depends on when the volunteer is available to come in for an informal interview and also how quickly we receive references and/or any other checks we need to carry out.

The role is very flexible and can be done around the volunteer's availability. The volunteer will be allocated an area that is close to them. Some of the work can be done from home. There is no minimum commitment period.
