Running a rural Church is not cheap and we have a number of necessary building works approaching in the coming months and years. To help us fundraise we have joined TheGivingMachine which will allow you to generate cash donations without it costing you a penny. There are over 8000 schools & charities taking part in this program, with the successful causes raising £1,000’s every year at no extra cost to their supporters!
TheGivingMachine is a UK registered charity, whose sole aim is to facilitate raising money for UK charitable causes and schools. By shopping online via TheGivingMachine at your favourite shops will generate a free cash donation with every single purchase. With stores like Amazon, Ebay, M&S, NEXT, Tesco, Sainsbury and John Lewis taking part with hundreds more, you are bound to find what you want from your favourite shops at TheGivingMachine.
