Big Brum Bucket 2019 is one of the longest-standing events on the Birmingham St Mary’s calendar and we need you to make it happen!

It’s a city-wide event that anyone and everyone can get involved with. Grab your bucket and take to the streets to raise money for local families living with a life-limiting illness.

We’ll be brandishing buckets across the city, so no matter where you are, we’ll be collecting near you, from your local high street to a nearby supermarket. Get creative – why not come in fancy dress to really stand out from the crowd! 

3 Reasons To Get Involved!

☑ Spend time with friends and family or make new friends

☑ Give as much or as little time as you'd like by booking on to our sessions

☑ Make a real difference to people living with life-limiting illness and their families


Feel like taking on an extra challenge? Become one of our fantastic Head Bucketeers!

As well as our fantastic team of Hospice Bucketeers, we are looking for several Head Bucketeers to represent each of the collection locations. 

This is a great role where you can really develop your team leader skills and meet new people! 

As a Head Bucketeer you will:

  • Act as a team leader for your collection location
  • Collect your location's collection buckets, t-shirts and resources from the Hospice before the collection weekend (we can arrange to deliver these to you if it is easier)
  • Meet the volunteers in your location on the day of the collection and distribute their materials
  • Collect your volunteer's resources and collection buckets at the end of the day
  • Deliver the money collected and resources back to the Hospice

To become a Head Bucketeer please contact Ashleigh Key by emailing [email protected] or calling 0121 752 8776.

"I thought that taking part in The Big Brum Bucket Collection was a simple yet effective way for me to show support for the Hospice. It was a great day and I particularly enjoyed the contact with the public; people were so friendly! All that's needed is a little bit of your time and a smile to support a wonderful cause!" - Alison Deere, Bucketeer 2017
