    Contactless donation trial volunteer

    Bournemouth Parks Foundation

    This opportunity is ongoing, with no end date. Applications closed on 07 Dec.

    Be part of an innovative technology trial testing different contactless donation solutions in Bournemouth’s amazing parks. This technology is used in museums and for charities at events or internally in shops, but there isn’t currently a weather proof solution with an independent power source (e.g. solar). You’ll be testing various existing and prototype tap to give units with park visitors to explore people’s behaviour, likelihood to give and gather feedback on the units. This is an ideal role for someone who wants to meet new people, influence fundraising technology developments and support an innovative charity.
