You’re probably used to seeing charity collection pots on the counter of shops and restaurants. And hopefully sometimes you pop your loose change in them.

But did you know that the average charity collection pot holds £48, which can pay for an invaluable hour of care for a child at our hospices?

Your loose change can make a real difference to Demelza with our collection pots. Every little really does help.

How can you help?

Adopt a pot

If you work somewhere that could home a Demelza charity collection pot, please get in contact so we can provide you with one to start filling. Encourage your customers to pop in their loose change, and watch it fill up.

Recommend a spot for a pot

Do you know somewhere that could take a charity collection pot? Recommend them to your local shops, businesses, and friends. It’s really simple for them to sign up and start encouraging people to save their change.

Carry our pots to their new homes

Our volunteers help us place collection pots, and collect them back when they're full. If you're able to volunteer, please contact our Fundraising team on 0300 365 3653 or email us

Donate your change 

Of course, when you’re out and about and see one of our Demelza charity collection pots, we would love you to add in your loose change and watch the fundraising totals go up.
