Heart Foundation Doorknock Appeal September 2017

In NSW, the Big Heart Doorknock Appeal will take place between Friday 1 September and Saturday 30 September and will involve 4,800 volunteer collectors knocking on doors to collect vital funds for the Heart Foundation's lifesaving research and health  programs.
The law in NSW permits collections between the hours of 9:00am and 6:00pm. Donations collected during the Big Heart Appeal will fund lifesaving research into cardiovascular disease, community education programs, and services to patients to keep Australian hearts healthy.
As a requirement under NSW Fundraising legislation, each person who registers as a volunteer collector will be allocated a number of houses to doorknock either in their own street or in the local neighbourhood.
Volunteer collectors will also be provided with a Heart Foundation Official Identification Badge and Big Heart Appeal Doorknock receipt book. A copy of our current Public Liability Insurance Policy is attached for your reference.
Please note that there will be no street or shopping centre collections.
For further information or if you wish to donate please visit the Heart Foundation Website.
