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 1.8 million calls, some simply to say “Goodnight”.

We need your help this Silver Week (13-19 May) at several London Underground stations listed below, to raise money on behalf of The Silver Line.Shifts are 3 hours (although of course you can do more if you'd like)

The Silver Line is funded entirely through voluntary donations. We receive around 1600 calls a day. For 53% of those people we will be the only people they speak to that day.

Just £5 enables us to answer a call, so please come and help us raise much needed funds that could transform an older person's life.
