This year the village hall committee has been asking people in the village to do their internet shopping via Easyfundraising to raise money for the hall. We have already raised £140 and would like to thank all those people who have contributed to this. Just think how much we could raise if more people sign up to Easyfundraising to do their Christmas Shopping. Here’s how to go about it…….
- Go to https://www.easyfundraising.org.uk/causes/hambledonvillagehallsurrey/ and join for free.
- Save the site to your favourites or download the reminder which will then pop up every time you visit the site of a participating shop.
- Every time you shop online, first go to the Easyfundraising website then type in the name of the shop or site you want. You will then be taken to their website and can start shopping as usual. That’s all you need to do. It really is just one extra click of a button to raise money for the Village Hall.
After you’ve checked out, that retailer will make a donation to the Village Hall Fund (generally between 1% and 5% of the amount you have just spent) with no extra cost to you. A huge number of charities, schools and other good causes are signed up to Easyfundraising and most major retailers participate eg John Lewis, Amazon, Marks and Spencer. Easyfundraising itself is not a charity but a profit-making organisation which takes payments from the retailers which support them. Their website states that they don’t take any financial information from people using them to shop as all transactions will be with the retailer not Easyfundraising.
