St Mary’s is now a registered cause on www.easyfundraising.org.uk, the new and incredibly easy way to shop online and contribute to important causes at the same time without costing you an extra penny on your purchases.
What is easyfundraising.org.uk?
Retailers in every sector make charitable donations from their profits, and this site allows St Mary’s to get some of that money. We get between 0.75% and 2% of the total of your order depending on where you are shopping.
Which online shops are part of this scheme?
Debenhams, Currys, Amazon, Ebay, Homebase, Halfords… Frankly, it would be easier to list the ones that aren’t! Chances are, the shop you want to use is signed up. To check and see if your favourite shops are, click here to see a list.
How to sign up…
Click here to see our page on easyfundraising.org.uk and click the “Sign me up” button.
Then, enter your name, email address, create a password, and click “Proceed”.
Step 3: (Optional but highly recommended for those who really want to raise as much as possible)
Click “Install the toolbar” and follow the instructions.
Congratulations – You’re the latest supporter of St Mary-the-Virgin, Kenton!
You can search for your favourite retailer straight away and start earning St Mary’s money! Remember, every time you go to an online shop, you must do it by searching for them on easyfundraising. Your ‘Find & Remind’ toolbar will help with that!
From now on any purchase you make online will earn St Mary’s much needed funds. Our hope is that the whole congregation will make sure to do this… Even better, tell your friends and family how to do it, too!
The money raised will be used by the PCC to supplement our income. Hardly anyone has signed up yet and we’re already raising funds. Just think how much that could be if the whole congregation unites and signs up to easyfundraising.org.uk!
