Christmas carol singers, choirs and bell ringers will be performing live at High Wycombe John Lewis this December, in aid of Child Bereavement UK. Why not join in the Christmas spirit by volunteering just 4 hours of your time to support our charity this Christmas by signing up to collect donations from the public at this event full of Christmas cheer.  You will be supported by the Child Bereavement UK volunteer coordinator in advance and the Partner & Community Liaison Coordinator from John Lewis on the day. This is an excellent opportunity for anyone looking to get into the Christmas spirit and help a worthy course. This is child friendly event and children are welcome to join adult volunteers.

This is a child friendly event; volunteers can bring one child per volunteering adult. Children are the responsibility of the volunteering adult.


The collection is happening on Saturday 17 December, 12pm to 4pm. Seasonal live performances from choirs and bell ringers can be enjoyed whilst the collection is taking place.
