Community Engagement

Can your business, group or organisation give a home to a Pink Elephant or collection tin?

Pink Elephants and Collection Tins

Perhaps you know of a local shop or business who could give a home to one of MySight York’s Pink Elephants or collection tins? We would really love it if you were able to keep a Pink Elephant box or collection tin on your premises – we need the support of businesses to ensure we can continue to deliver services to local people who need them.

They are very low maintenance. We have a fantastic team of volunteers that will empty them regularly and we will stay in touch to let you know how they are doing!

Please let us know if you can help, by contacting Louise on 01904 636269 or emailing
