Online shopping?

Easyfundraising Don’t forget that you can help raise funds for Wesley Hall whenever you shop online!

With the Christmas season fast approaching, it seemed like a good time for a reminder.

You can use easyfundraising to shop with over 3,600 retailers including Amazon, Argos, John Lewis, ASOS, and Booking.com – and when you shop, you’ll raise a free donation for Wesley Hall funds every time. It’s that easy, and always worth checking which retailers donate – you might be surprised [I was. Ed]. It’s not only shops, but insurance companies, travel companies, and more.

Help support us: https://www.easyfundraising.org.uk/causes/whmc/

You may have known about this for a long time, but always forget to go via easyfundraising when you’re actually shopping online. There are two new(ish) features which will help:
– The Donation Reminder automatically lets you know when you’re on any site that offers donations with #easyfundraising. It even highlights retailers who donate when you search in Google.
– And if you do most of your online shopping on your phone, the Easyfundraising App means you’ll never miss a chance to donate.
