New fundraising scheme - at no extra cost to you


#1

Did you know that whenever you buy anything online - from your weekly shop to your annual holiday - you could be collecting free donations for Bridge Rectifier?

There are over 3,000 shops and sites on board ready to make a donation, including Amazon, John Lewis, Aviva, thetrainline and Sainsbury’s – it doesn’t cost you a penny extra!

It’s as easy as 1, 2, 3…

  1. Head to https://www.easyfundraising.org.uk/causes/bridgerectifier/ and join for free.

  2. Every time you shop online, go to easyfundraising first to find the site you want and start shopping.

  3. After you’ve checked out, that retailer will make a donation to your good cause for no extra cost whatsoever!

There are no catches or hidden charges and Bridge Rectifier will be really grateful for your donations. I’ve previously used this to raise money for Heptonstall Festival, then Heptonstall Village Team, so can vouch that it works, but the more of us that use it, the more we collect for the group - funds are donated directly to BR’s bank account.

Thank you for your support.

My wife and I have raised a tenner in the last fortnight, partly because we’re starting to buy stuff ahead of moving house. It’s very easy to fundraise this way, & lots of little bits add up. So, if others would subscribe (free), it would help Bridge Rectifier fund kit purchases etc.

I just raised £13 today when I used this to select GoCompare to shop around for my car insurance. That’s £33 since the start of September . . . It didn’t complicate the process at all.

I’ve been using it for a few days too. Only added a quid so far, but I can see it can easily add up.

Glad you’ve started using it, @paul123. I think there are over 20,000 retailers registered, including all the supermarkets (for anyone who shops online), hotel & flight booking, insurance, Amazon, Screwfix, John Lewis, wine, florists, price comparison sites, . . . whatever it is you buy.

As we said at the AGM, it may seem an odd way to help fund the hackerspace, but every bit of help counts, particularly as membership subscription income currently falls well short of annual outgoings. So, I’d encourage others to give it a go as well. My wife and I have raised £68 for BR since Sep-17.
