Give while you shop

25th May 2018

How can we be conscientious in the way we consume?

We all buy stuff! From basic essentials like food and clothes, to all those contracts like car insurance or mobile phone tariffs and some occasional luxuries like a holiday abroad or a new mountain bike.

What if we could give money as easily as we spend it? Well now we can do both at the same time time and at no extra cost!

Each of the following schemes allow you to do exactly what you always have done (buy goods and services from your favourite shops or websites) but this time you can chose a charity to benefit at the same time without paying a penny more.

Read on to find out how you could support the Foodbank while you do your weekly shop, pick up a gift for a friend, book your holiday or renew your car insurance.
