Hope Community Services HITS TARGETS WITH EASYFUNDRAISING

Hope Community Services HITS TARGETS WITH EASYFUNDRAISING

Hope Community Services has raised £223.50 for their homeless hostel by signing up to easyfundraising.org.uk.

The team at HOPE  hit their fundraising target this month, of over £200 and can now support more people who are in crisis in Worksop. Their next target to aim for, for 2017 will be £300.00.

The charity received the backing of many supporters who shopped through easyfundraising.org.uk to help boost their fundraising for free.

“What is wonderful about easyfundraising is that it is absolutely free to us and our supporters and a very quick and simple way to raise funds for us as a charity”.

 

Funds are raised in a very simple way. Supporters register to help a good cause and whenever they shop through the site with any of the 2,700 retailers listed on easyfundraising.org.uk, the retailer gives a small percentage of what’s been spent back to the good cause to say thank you for shopping with them.

Many high street names are now involved including Amazon, John Lewis, eBay and Tesco giving causes and supporters a great opportunity to raise funds.

HOPE is one of thousands of causes across the UK which has benefitted from more than £5 million in donations made through easyfundraising, with more than half a million supporters signed up to the site.

 

The cash has been raised since the Staffordshire based company launched eight years ago in 2005. Supporters shop through the site to earn cash donations from retailers for their cause.

 

The company was set up by Ian Woodroffe, a former telecoms account manager, who, while recovering from cancer, wanted to use the boom in internet shopping to help cash strapped charities generate much needed funds.
