The last street collection in September 2017 raised over £400, so we would like to say a big 'thank-you' to all of our volunteers who took time out to collect - and another big 'thank-you' to everyone who donated.
Our quarterly street collections are busy days for Totnes Caring volunteers who take to the streets to raise money and awareness for the chairty and its important work. These days are fantastic ways to meet new people and engage with the community in Totnes, as well as providing an enjoyable experience.
On Collection Day you will find us at the following locations around Totnes: Leatside Surgery; Totnes Town Mill (by Morrisons); Mill Lane (by The Seven Stars); Peacocks; The Mansion; Fore Street (by Budgens); Totnes Community Hospital and the Market Area of Totnes.
Come and find us and feel free to ask questions of our volunteers and (maybe even) donate, so we can improve and continue all that we do. Alternatively, if you'd like to help out, and you are able to spare 45 minutes at any point on the day, please get involved in helping the charity to raise much-needed funds. Meet and talk to the people around Totnes and tell them all about us. Always an enjoyable activity - and we always appreciate any help you are able to offer! If you're interested, please check out our contact page and ask to talk to Jacquie, Amanda or Victoria regarding the Street Collection: they will be more than happy to answer any queries you may have - and maybe even book you a slot to help out!
