Have you looked at easyfundraising yet? We’re working with them to provide you with a simple way to generate additional income for your church. easyfundraising enables people to support good causes simply by doing their normal online shopping.

St Leonard and St Ethelburga have raised an amazing £2315 so far and PCC treasurer Janet told us: ‘We have been promoting easyfundraising for some time and really benefitted from the donations. It’s good to be able to get something for the church when shopping online and at no extra cost.’ Well done to them! Find out more here
