Deck the Halls with Boughs of Holly! We would love to have some of your volunteering time over the busy Christmas period if you are able? Just an hour or two would be a huge help.
This year we are not just looking for volunteer collectors, but also volunteers who can man a SPEAR bauble stall and also volunteers who love a good sing! Children can come too if supervised by an adult.

Sing and Collect 15th and 17th December
Collection days at Christmas are more fun than ever! Belting out Christmas classics cheering commuters and shoppers. You don’t have to be a trained singer- some gusto and goodwill makes all the difference! If you know of any singers who would like to get involved please let us know. We need people to sing out some Christmas cheer and and collect donations at the following venues:
- Twickenham Train Station Thursday 15th December 6.30 – 9.30am and 4-6pm. Help make the commuters’ day and raise vital funds for SPEAR.
- SQUIRES Garden Centre, Saturday 17th December 9am – 5pm. Address: Sixth Cross Road, Twickenham, TW2 5PA. We are Squires’ “Charity of the Year” and we will be collecting outside on one of the busiest shopping days of the year.
