Find a Home for Sooty Volunteer

Volunteering from Home

Join our community of amazing volunteer Sooty box collectors and help us to provide blind and partially sighted people with the support they need at this uncertain time.

RNIB urgently need volunteers to collect and bank donations received through our Sooty boxes, which play a vital role in generating income and raising our profile in local communities. This role is completely flexible, can be performed by individuals, pairs or groups and the time you dedicate to it is entirely up to you and your commitments. You can give your time as little or as often as you like!

This activity has been fully risk-assessed and you'll be supported by a volunteer manager to ensure the role is performed safely and in-line with current government restrictions.

Please note: Volunteers will be expected to use their own transportation and ideally should have access to a car. Mileage or transport costs can be reimbursed. Due to insurance requirements you must be 18 or over.


Find new venues for Collection Boxes; Place Collection Boxes in agreed outlets; Collect, record and bank donations.

If you don’t want to find new homes for Sooty we need people to collect and replace boxes we have already placed in business premises in your local area.
