Volunteer opportunity description

The Silver Line is the UK’s only free, 24 hour, confidential  helpline, specifically for vulnerable and isolated older people, open every day and night of the year, offering information, friendship, or a chat whenever needed. Since launching in 2013, we have received more than 2 million calls, some simply to say “Goodnight”.

We need your help this Christmas at several London Underground stations, to collect money on our behalf on the days below and to celebrate our 5th Birthday in November.

The Silver Line is funded entirely through voluntary donations. Last Christmas, we recieve over 10,000 calls a week. Just £5 enables us to answer a call, so please help us be available for every older person who needs us this year. We need your help at our  Christmas collections at several London underground stations, and would love you to volunteer to join us.
