Life’s busy and often it’s hard to find time to support charities and causes you’re passionate about. We know lots of people who’d like to get involved with our work but don’t have the time to commit to being a volunteer or the money to become a regular donor, so we’ve compiled a list of easy ways you can help us make a difference without leaving the comfort of your own home.
This is such a simple and easy way to support your chosen to charity with little effort and no extra cost. easyfundraising is an online platform and app that allows you to shop at your favourite online retailers who will donate a percentage of your spend to a charity of your choice. Over 3,300 retailers including John Lewis, Sainsbury’s and Asos are signed up and are willing to donate to us without costing you a penny.
If you would like to find out how to get started, please visit their website www.easyfundraising.org.uk.
Of a similar nature to easyfundraising, ChariTable Bookings allows you to donate to your chosen charity simply by booking restaurant tables and hotel rooms. For every booking a host of restaurants and hotels are willing to donate £1 per person to charity at no extra cost to you. This is a great way to support a good cause while enjoying a meal out with your family or a weekend away somewhere hot.

Social media is a great tool to spread our message to new audiences and we love connecting with our supporters and volunteers regularly. We’re active on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and LinkedIn. If you’re not already, why not follow us! We always appreciate people sharing our posts or dropping us a friendly message. While you might not think this will have a big impact, anything you can do to help us promote our services and volunteering opportunities to new supporters would be greatly appreciated. (You can find links to all our social media accounts at the bottom of this page.)
Of course if you find you have a bit of extra time on your hands, we’re always looking for new volunteers and fundraisers. You can see all of our volunteering opportunities on our Volunteering Page.
