COMMUNITY groups in the north-east could win themselves free donations thanks to a fundraising website.
Website www.easyfundraising.org.uk is giving voluntary groups and third sector organisations thousands of opportunities to win donations this month.
When anyone connected to a group plays Spin to Win on the website, they could win anything from 10p-£50 for their organisation every day. One in 10 people are guaranteed to win a donation for their good cause.
Groups can earn from up to three spins a day. There are also ways players can earn extra spins – and potentially more cash – for their chosen organisations.
In order to benefit from the scheme, groups must first be registered with easyfundraising.
Community groups can also benefit through easyfundraising's shopping scheme. After registering, groups encourage their volunteers and supporters to sign up, too. When shopping online they need to go to the easyfundraising website or app first, then they can shop as normal with over 6000 retailers.
After making purchases at these businesses, the retailer sends the group a donation at no extra cost to say 'thank you' for shopping with them.
