Placing ECHO collection boxes in your school, workplace or locally – in shops, businesses, pubs, restaurants, sports clubs or community centres – can be a great way to raise money.
You’d be surprised to hear how much money charities can raise from collecting pennies – it can lead to hundreds of pounds!
We recommend telling the person in charge why you’re raising money for ECHO, it often helps them to hear your personal reasons for supporting our cause.
We can send you collection boxes free of charge, as well as other materials to help you raise awareness.
Always ensure you trust the people you are asking to look after the collection box, and don’t forget the all-important task of collecting the money!
You don’t need to send the whole collection box to us every time, simply bank the money and send us the donation by bank transfer.
If you have any questions or you’d like to talk to someone please contact our fundraising team who are always happy to help.
