Shoppers Asked to Show Some Christmas Spirit
By St John Ambulance | Wednesday, October 10, 2012, 11:30
Local good cause St John Ambulance is hoping Christmas shopping can provide the key to fundraising success this year.
St John Ambulance - Keynsham Cadets have signed up with www.easyfundraising.org.uk, an innnovative website where thousands of people are raising money for charities every time they shop.
With access to over 3000 well known retailers, savvy shoppers can generate free donations for their good cause. As donations can be as much as 15% of the purchase price, St John Ambulance - Keynsham Cadets are really hoping local people will log on and support them.
And with UK shoppers set to spend £7.75billion online in the Christmas shopping period, Dan Shearing from St John Ambulance - Keynsham Cadets is keen for as many people as possible to sign up to this free service and raise money as they buy their Christmas gifts:
"In the current financial climate we know that every penny counts so we're not asking people to donate, just to shop online as they normally would this Christmas. But instead of going directly the retailer website, if they go via easyfundraising.org.uk first, their gift purchases will turn into donation for us.
"Almost all of us shop online these days so what could be easier than raising funds simply doing your Christmas shopping online?"
