Collection Tins and Boxes

Our collection tins and boxes play a vital part in Hospice fundraising.  We have over 300 tins in our local community across Edinburgh and the Lothians which helps to raise vital funds from loose change as well as helping to raise awareness of our cause.

We are always on the lookout for somewhere new to display one of our collections tins. You can help support us by placing one of our secure tins within your premises.  The Hospice team can allocate you a designated tin collector who will drop off your new tin and visit you on a regular basis to renew your tin and bring the full one back to the Hospice. To find out more about having a collection tin in your workplace, please email us or call the Fundraising Team on 0131 551 1381.


Collection boxIf you would like a collection box for your own home, we have special Challenger Lodge boxes which we can send to you in the post.  Once full, you can bring your box back to the Hospice and collect a new one! If you would like to be sent a Challenger Lodge coin collection box, please email us or call the Fundraising Team on 0131 551 1381.

If you require a supply of collection tins or boxes for your own event please contact the Fundraising Team who will be able to organise this for you along with bespoke labels if required.

Volunteer tin collectors

IMG_7035If you are interested in helping raise awareness and increase income for St Columba’s Hospice by becoming a volunteer tin collector, we would love to hear from you. We have over 80 collectors who manage the collection of tins across Edinburgh and the Lothians.

As a volunteer tin collector, you will be responsible for your assigned collection tins which will be in your local area, visiting every few months to collect their tin and return it to the Hospice. This is a flexible role where you can visit the outlets at a time that suits you.

Being a tin collector is a great opportunity to get out into your local community and build relationships with local businesses whilst supporting the Hospice.
