We partly finance production of the magazines with weekly public collections, mainly at mainline tube stations in and around London but occasionally in other towns and cities. The collections take place every Wednesday, either at peak travel times or all day from 7:30 am to 7:00 pm, with people taking various shifts. Collections are led by experienced staff who amongst other tasks, can supply the collectors with hot tea and biscuits! If you would like to help please contact the office on 0203 609 7255.
