Our Story

After many years of running large corporate teams and seeing lots of ‘secret’ collection envelopes being passed around the office, Collection Pot Founder, Wendy Carter thought that there must be a more fun and less time-consuming way of collecting for special occasions. This was backed up by a conversation overheard between a receptionist and an office manager who were complaining that they had put in the lion’s share of the collection for someone in the office ‘yet again‘.

Why did they find it such a pain?

  • They had to send round an envelope to request cash, which always went missing.
  • The people who worked on the road, from home, or branch offices were disappointed to have not been included
  • No one ever had cash on them
  • Someone was given the task of buying a gift and wrapping it, not knowing if the gift was appropriate
  • The recipient was then altogether unsure of who had given towards the present.

The whole thing sounded time consuming and dull – surely there was a way to reduce all the administration around gifting?

That’s when Collection Pot was born, taking away the hassle and time associated with buying a gift for that birthday, engagement, baby, retirement or team night out.

Collection Pot launched in 2018 and offers businesses, groups of friends and family a chance to simplify collections for each celebration, whatever the occasion. The lucky Collection Pot recipient can then go on to spend their pot online via a wide range of high street retailers, donate to their chosen charity, or top up their pot to spend against a number of unique Collection Pot offers.

Setting up a pot takes minutes and can be personalised to the occasion and the recipient.

As well as being open to businesses, Collection Pot also works for other celebration experiences, such as collecting money together for a hen or stag party, organising a trip of a lifetime, community projects, or a special birthday.

Simply, it’s the best way to reduce admin load and bring people together to make celebrations special again.
