This year East Lancashire Railway have found a great way to raise money for free, simply by shopping online through a website called easyfundraising (www.easyfundraising.org.uk).
Whenever you buy anything online (e.g. Christmas presents, groceries, clothes, books, train tickets, hotel rooms, etc.) you can raise a free donation for East Lancashire Railway . There are over 2,700 retailers registered with the site, including Amazon, John Lewis, eBay and Tesco who will donate a percentage of what you spend to East Lancashire Railway to say thank you for shopping with them.
Here’s how it works:
1. Sign up – go to http://www.easyfundraising.org.uk/causes/elr and click on the button to sign up.
2. Shop – from the easyfundraising website, search for the retailer you’d like to shop with and click through to the retailer to make your purchase. This tells the retailer you came from easyfundraising. The price is exactly the same as if you’d visited the retailer directly.
3. Get a donation – after you’ve made your purchase, the retailer will give you a cash reward that easyfundraising turn into a donation for East Lancashire Railway.
No cost, no catch!
Please be assured that using the easyfundraising website will not cost you a penny. There are no catches or hidden charges and East Lancashire Railway benefit from any donations you make once registered.
Thank you for your support.
