Virtual Bucket Collection

Let’s shake things up this year and make your Trussell Trust collection a virtual one!

Virtual collections make it even easier to fundraise for the Trussell Trust. Without incredible Team Trussell fundraisers like you, we wouldn’t be able to help food banks support their communities or campaign for long-term change.

Whether you were planning a street collection in fancy dress, a collection as part of a celebration, carrying collection buckets in your town carnival, or a collecting tin in your local club you can still bring your community, colleagues, friends, and family together, and raise vital funds. You don’t even need to leave the house to fundraise!

It’s quick and easy, just click on the ‘Become a Virtual Bucket Collector’ button and set up your fundraising page now!

Step 4

Top Tips

Make it personal – Use your fundraising page to tell people about why you are having a virtual bucket collection, friends and family are more likely to donate if they understand why the Trussell Trust is important to you. Don’t forget to also add a photo of yourself so that people can easily see it is your page.

Shake your bucket collection! Share your JustGiving link with your friends, family, colleagues, social group etc. by email or through social media like WhatsApp, Facebook and Instagram.

Remind your supporters about Gift Aid – If someone who donates to you is a UK taxpayer, they can add Gift Aid to their donation. This makes their donation worth 25% more to us and doesn’t cost them a penny.

Give regular updates – Let everyone know how you’re getting on, how much you’ve raised and what your target is.

Thank everyone who donates – JustGiving will automatically send a thank you email to anyone who donates, but a personal touch is always an appreciated touch, thank donors yourself, tell them how much it means to you that they supported your collection.
