This Christmas we have an amazing opportunity to collect at Transport for London (TfL) Underground stations and we need your help! Can you volunteer your time to collect for our nation's Heroes? Without your support, we couldn’t be there to give our seriously injured Veterans hope for the future.

7am – 10am
10am – 1pm

If you can’t make it in December, we have other collections in 2020. If you’re interested in future TfL collections, please click on the ‘Register Interest’ button and complete the short form.
What's it like to volunteer?
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.
