Support SVAS and raise money whenever you shop online

easyfundraising.org.uk

It’s very simple – just visit easyfundraising to register and allow you to shop with over 2,000 well known retailers such as Amazon, Argos, M&S, eBay and many more. Then, whenever you buy something, the retailer makes a donation to the SVAS. easyfundraising has helped other causes to raise over £2,000,000 and we’ve already raised over £150 with a small group of volunteers – so it really does work.

We’d be really grateful if you could use easyfundraising too. It won’t cost you a penny extra to shop through easyfundraising and there are even opportunities to save money with special offers and voucher codes.

Please make a difference to the SVAS and take a look at easyfundraising at the above web address today.

Sell items to raise funds for SVAS via eBay

ebay.co.uk

This lets you sell items and allow the SVAS to benefit by donating all or a percentage of the sale value in increments of 10% up to 100%. The donation is then handled by Ebay’s partner MissionFish who are able to claim back the tax via the GiftAid scheme.

For full information on how to sell for the benefit of the SVAS, please visit this link which explains how to go about it.
