Bucket Collections

Bucket collections are a great way to help support those affected by lung cancer, you’re helping to raise funds and most importantly, awareness. We are looking for volunteers to help us at bucket collections up and down the country this year.

Do you want to become a RCLCF bucket volunteer?

We’re currently able to offer buckets to volunteers in the following areas:

  • London
  • Glasgow
  • Birmingham
  • Manchester
  • Liverpool
  • Leeds
  • Bristol
  • Guildford
  • Clapham
  • Reading

Top Tips

  • Create a great impression by staying happy and enthusiastic, a smile goes a long way and even if they don’t donate – they may next time!
  • Be respectful to the staff if your collection is in a venue such as a train station
  • Do not open your collection bucket unless you are authorised to do so
  • Do not shake your bucket or put any pressure on people to donate – it is illegal
  • Do not cause an obstruction
  • Do not smoke or consume alcohol while collecting on our behalf
