SwimMark Club



Did you know that whenever you buy anything online – from your weekly shop to your annual holiday – you could be raising free donations for Tavistock Swimming Club with easyfundraising?
There are over 4,000 shops and sites on board ready to make a donation – including eBay, Argos, John Lewis, ASOS, Booking.com and M&S – and it won’t cost you a penny extra to help us raise funds.
All you need to do is:
1. Go to https://www.easyfundraising.org.uk/causes/tavistocksc/?utm_campaign=raise-more and join for free.

2. Every time you shop online, go to easyfundraising first to find the site you want and start shopping.  You can even get a "donation reminder" for your browser which will remind you if you forget.

3. After you’ve checked out, the retailer will make a donation to the club at no extra cost to you whatsoever!  

4.  You can use it too if when you switch your insurance, change broadband or energy supplier or take a new mobile contract.  Offers change from day to day, but at the time of writing BT is offering £12.50 and the AA an extraordinary £60.  On the easyfundraising page, look under "Big donations" and also check the dropdown menu under "Shop to raise".


With Amazon it is even easier.  Do your shopping at smile.amazon.co.uk, choose Tavistock Swimming Club as your charity, and Amazon will give 0.5% of the purchase price (excl. VAT) to the club every time you shop.  If you are using the phone app, simply turn on Amazon Smile in the app. (Find 'Settings' in the main menu (☰). Tap on ‘AmazonSmile’ and follow the on-screen instructions to turn on AmazonSmile on your phone.  This doesn't work on iPads and other tablets.  To shop AmazonSmile on your tablet, open smile.amazon.co.uk in the browser.)


If you have any trouble using either easyfundraising or AmazonSmile, just ask a member of the committee.  They will be happy to help, or to point you to someone who can.  Remember: the club doesn't make a profit, so every £1 you raise this way is £1 less which needs to be paid in fees.
