Coronavirus: Shopping online? You can help local organisations.

If you're shopping online, you can make money for local organisations without having to part with any extra cash.

  • As shops across the UK are forced to close apart from delivery operations, lots of people are turning to shopping online.
  • Charities and other organisations in the local area can make money when you shop online.
  • You don't have to part with any cash to help make a difference to the local community.

As shops across the UK have been forced to close unless they provide essential products, we're being encouraged to use online purchases where possible.

As people increase their use of online shopping platforms, there's an opportunity to benefit local charities and organisations.

Organisations can sign up to easyfundraising.org.uk, which makes money for them without the buyer having to part with any extra cash.

Here's how it works:
