Help for Heroes Asda National Collection Weekend
Can you make time for heroes and volunteer this summer?
Asda have very kindly offered Help for Heroes a national collection for the 8th year running which means we are able to collect in all their stores on the weekend of 21 - 22 July.
Today, 7 people will be medically discharged from the Armed Forces and their lives will change. As a collection volunteer you will help give our heroes a second chance at life.
We are looking for volunteers to join our fundraising forces by collecting donations and selling a range of merchandise at Asda stores nationwide and whether you can help for a couple of hours or the whole weekend, we would love to hear from you.
Volunteer Team Leader
This role includes liaising with the Asda store to discuss arrangements for the weekend. You will be the main point of contact with any volunteers who have agreed to help over the weekend, and will also receive Help for Heroes merchandise and promotional items to take along to the collection.
As Volunteer Team Leader you will meet lots of new people, have a great time and help give our heroes a second chance at life.
Afterwards, you will need to return unsold items and money to Help for Heroes.
This is a chance for you to volunteer some of your time to help at the collection - anything from a couple of hours to the whole weekend. You will meet lots of new people, have a great time and help give our heroes a second chance at life.
If you would like to get in touch with us with any questions or need further information then please use the details below:
They didn’t plan on becoming volunteers, but after unexpectedly enjoying one of Help for Heroes’ Tesco national collections a couple of years ago, Jacqui and Neil Hogg were determined to become part of a cause that “we should all be grateful for”.
The husband and wife from Staines had supported the Charity in the form of regular donations since its creation in 2007, and they said they were surprised by how they felt after meeting and speaking to the public.
Neil said: “We never really considered volunteering, and stupidly we just thought it was the military people who were doing it.
“But when we did the national collection (Tesco), we were shocked at the positive attitude and support for Help for Heroes from the public. It filled us with a really warm feeling and we decided there and then that we wanted to increase our support in any way we could.”
During the last two years, the couple has often been seen with their collection tin in and around London and have taken to Twickenham station in recent times ahead of rugby internationals, tin in hand.
They regularly hold stalls at supermarkets and events, and have planned an exciting collection this spring, namely, a trip to Windsor where the Hogg’s hope to capitalise on the jovial spirit of the Royal wedding between Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, and raise some essential funds for our wounded, injured and sick Service Personnel.
