Bag Packing Volunteer

What is it?

We’re delighted to be visiting supermarkets in 2020 to host fundraising bag packs, to raise funds for our vital mental health services in York. Our team of helpful volunteers will be taking the hard work out of the shopping for customers in exchange for a donation to York Mind. Every penny counts and we’d be thrilled to have you on our team to collect change and take contactless donations at the till if you’re able to help.

We'll make sure you're kitted out to represent York Mind with your blue t-shirt and blue bucket. You may also be allocated a contactless donation unit to use on the day (subject to availability).

No experience is needed - we'll give you a little training on the day. All you need is a grin and a willingness to help!
