Raise money for CCS Friends every time you shop online.
Every time you shop online, check that the retailer is registered with Easyfundraising or if Amazon is one of your favourites, follow the Amazon Smile link, and with these two online platforms they will donate a percentage of every purchase you make.
Here, our wonderful CCS Friends Committee Member, Lindsay Plantin, explains how it works.

BIG CHRISTMAS RAFFLE TO SUPPORT CCS FRIENDS
CCS Friends are excited to announce that we are joining The Big PTA Raffle 2020 this year, as unfortunately we cannot run our usual super successful Christmas Hampers. This has been a really tough year for everyone and this is an opportunity to have some fun and raise money for our school.
For every ticket you buy you will have 12 chances to win up to £5,000!* At the same time we will raise 50% from every ticket sold supporting CCS Friends. It's a fantastic way to bring Parents, Carers, Teachers and the wider community together, in partnership with CCS Friends and at the same time give something back. We hope to raise funds that can support and enrich the education of our children.
Tickets are limited, and on a first come first served basis, so please make sure to ACT FAST for your chance to win a huge cash prize.
Your support is greatly appreciated and we wish you good luck!
To buy tickets visit www.bigptaraffle.co.uk and search for Caroline Chisholm School Friends Association.

What is easyfundraising? easyfundraising is the UK’s biggest charity fundraising site. It’s simple to use, and it’s free. Since 2005, good causes and charities across the UK have raised over £24 million with easyfundraising.
How does easyfundraising work? easyfundraising turns your everyday online shopping into donations for your favourite cause, at no cost to you. How? Just visit your favourite retailers through the easyfundraising website and the shop as normal. Once you’ve made a purchase our retailers will then make a small donation to your cause to say “thank you”. There are over 3,300 retailers to choose from, so you’ll be spoilt for choice!
How much will I raise? The donation per purchase will generally be between 0.5% and 10%. Some retailers - including insurance and broadband providers - will pay a flat fee which can be in the £100s.
Is it really free? Yes! You won’t spend a penny more than normal when shopping online.
Can I buy everything online that I would normally? The world is your oyster. easyfundraising’s huge range of online retailers includes big names such as John Lewis, M&S, Boden, Expedia, Amazon, eBay, all the major supermarkets, holiday operators, insurance providers, plus a wide range of smaller and more niche online shops and stores. You name it, they’ve got it covered.
What if I forget to shop through easyfundraising? Not a problem! easyfundraising have designed two handy tools to help you remember: 1. Install the Donation Reminder onto your desktop in just a couple of clicks - it will then automatically highlight retailers where a donation is available while you’re browsing. 2. Download the easyfundraising app. You’ll be able to use the app whenever you shop from your mobile or tablet and know that you’ll never miss out on a donation.
