  • What are house-to-house collections

    House-to-house collections involve members of the church or local community delivering envelopes to homes in the local area and calling back to see if a homeowner would like to make a donation.

    Christian Aid has a special license that covers this activity and house-to-house collections have been a key way the church community has supported us in fundraising and raising awareness since their first inception during the 1950s.

    Over the years house-to-house collections have raised tens of millions of pounds for some of the poorest communities in the world each May. At over 60 years old Christian Aid week is the longest-running fundraising week in the UK. For many supporters, house-to-house collecting is an important part of their churches mission and outreach. If you are interested in joining a collection or finding out what’s happening in your area, please contact us.
