Could we suggest that you consider helping the Charity to raise funds by helping us to receive commission payments from Give as You Live whenever you make purchases both on/offline.
There are two methods by which the Charity can receive commission payments, and there are no other costs involved:
- You can set up a Shopping Homepage for your favourite online stores. Once you have registered and selected the Charity as the recipient (you only need to type "Chris Westwood Charity" into the Search box) you can enter your chosen srore group website with just a couple of clicks. You can then proceed to make any desired purchases in the normal way, including payment. By using the entry route through Give as You Live, the Charity will receive a commission payment which is typically between 1% and 3%. There are no additional costs involved, and the Charity benefits every time you purchase. You can register with as many store groups as you wish.
- You can also register for an in-store reloadable store card, for a specific store group (typically where you do the bulk of the weekly shop). Every time you top up the card with additional funding (online using your Debit card) the Charity receives the commission payment. You shop in the normal way, and instead of paying by Credit/Debit card at the checkout, you use the reloadable card. Apart from an initial fee of £2.50 for a reloadable card for your chosen store group, once set up there are no other costs and the Charity benefits every time you top up the card.
The link to the Give as You Live website is: https://www.giveasyoulive.com/ways-to-raise.
The first section of the page allows you to set up a "Shopping Homepage" for your favourite stores, for online purchases, and if you scroll down to the third section, entitled "Buy Groceries in-Store" you can sign up for a reloadable card for a specific store group, to use in-store.
Please support us if you can, it will help to make a big difference to our fundraising.
