EASY FUNDRAISING: DO YOU SHOP ONLINE? DID YOU KNOW YOU CAN HELP US RAISE FUNDS!
Thank you to the two new members to Easy Fundraising last month, we raised £5.30 in February. Which is a great start towards our new Chairs & Cushions for the clubhouse. There are some great offers with month for Mothers Day & Summer Holidays, some stores have raised their contribution back to the club 3% on these purchases. For example if you spent £30, the club would get 90 pence back. Every penny helps!
