If you shop online regularly you can now support us at no extra cost to yourself through easyfundraising. Nearly three thousand online retailers, including amazon and ebay, will donate a percentage of what you spend to your chosen charity – and we’d be so grateful if you’d choose us!

All you need to do is register with them at www.easyfundraising.org.uk and choose Philip Bates Trust as your cause so that we can receive your bonuses. When you shop online, first log on to easyfundraising then access your online store through them. Alternatively, you can download the donation reminder toolbar to sit top right on your browser and click on that when you’re on your chosen shopping site.

Participating retailers include large companies such as John Lewis, House of Fraser, Debenhams, Next, Boots, Argos, Viking and Currys PC World, plus many travel and holiday booking sites. There’s also an easyfundraising app available to download for your mobile from google play or apple store.
