I contacted Thyroid UK for a collection box to keep at home. The idea being that any change I have or find will go in it, along with, hopefully, any small donations or change from visitors, and I’ll send it back when it’s relatively full.
It came with information on how to cash it in, and a stamped envelope, so it has all that I need. The box itself came flat packed, and is a few inches in length and one or two high and deep.
It didn’t cost me anything, but I’m hoping it’ll reinforce the message at home and will help collect even a little bit more to help with the amazing work they do.
Can you find space for a collection box at home, work or in your local shop? Collection boxes not only help to raise vital funds, they also create awareness of Thyroid UK’s important work.

I run a Facebook group, called Thyroid Family: Hypothyroidism Advice & Support Group. This group is for underactive thyroid/hypothyroidism patients only, and not medical professionals or anyone else. If you have any questions on living with hypothyroidism, or want some support, help or advice, please join us.
I also run a group for the spouses, partners and other halves of hypothyroid patients, called Hypothyroid Patients Other Halves – Support & Advice Group. This is for the other halves only and not patients.
