Congratulations to our winners so far:


Day 1 – Jacquie, supporting Cleadon Archers
“Exciting news about our easyfundraising efforts. One of our members has just won £250 for us in the Advent Calendar draw. This brings our Easyfundraising total to over £450. Every penny of these funds goes to making archery accessible to all, including those with physical and mental disabilities. We already have a brilliant shelter and we are planning to buy grass matting to lay from the shelter to the shooting line. This will help wheelchair archers and those with limited mobility. We love archery and one of our main objectives at present is to help others share in the pleasure and fellowship that we find in this sport.”

“I am super excited and grateful for the award. I am at a loss for words. Winning this means I have to worry less about my finances and focus more on my studies since I am a self-sponsored student. I am very grateful to Argos because they support students and make our dreams come true. To other fundraisers, do not give up when you don’t get donations, keep at it. Also, keep using easy fundraising, they’ve got plenty of resources and tips for students. Thank you so much Argos, thank you easy fundraising.”

They have extended the rear of the building with an annexe to enable them to advance their drama capabilities especially in regard to their annual youth pantomime, and this money will enable them to continue to host events for their community and make them bigger and better year on year. easyfundraising is an amazing way to bless causes that are close to your heart while you shop online at no cost to you. I would really recommend it to anyone.”

Day 11 – Chris, supporting Stoke on Trent and District Gingerbread Centre
“Finding out that I had won a £250 donation for the Stoke Gingerbread Centre was amazing. I know the charity is supporting a lot of local families at present who have unfortunately lost their home. This donation will help them make Christmas that little bit better for those families. I would say to all easyfundraising users, make sure that you are using every opportunity to raise funds for your chosen charity. It really is a fantastic way to get donations!”

Day 14 – Emma, supporting Cat & Rabbit Rescue Centre – Sidlesham
“Winning a £250 donation for the Cat & Rabbit Rescue Centre is marvellous. The CRRC are a smashing team of staff and volunteers who are dedicated to giving love, care and medical treatment to cats, rabbits, hamsters, and other animals who, through no fault of their own, find themselves in unfortunate or unsafe circumstances.  I have been signed up to easyfundraising since March 2020, and had raised almost £100 in donations just by doing my normal online shopping at supermarket, craft and other sites, spending no more than I would.   What’s not to like, total no brainer! The icing on the (Christmas) cake is to have now won a £250 donation for the CRRC.  I know this will help them as they help the animals.  They truly deserve this.   I am so pleased to be able to help them with these donations as well as my annual sponsorships of the cats. Thank you easyfundraising and the online sites for making this possible.”

Day 15 – Jon, supporting Westbury Infant School
“I signed up to easyfundraising through my little boys Infants School. Anything they raise helps subsidise school trips, so this will go along to making the next couple of terms more interesting. Especially as they have had to miss out on so many over the last couple of years.”

Day 17 – Jan, raising money to cover university costs

Day 18 – Jane, supporting Biddulph Amateur Swimming Club
“This is amazing thank you, I never win anything. This is great news for Biddulph Swimming club especially in these hard times. The money will go some way to helping keep the club a successful one. We are fundraising at the moment to be able to better our website to be able to attract new swimmers to the club. This is an amazing amount towards this.”

Day 19 – Malcolm, supporting St John’s Methodist Church Whitley Bay
“St John’s Methodist Church in Whitley Bay is a place of welcome for the local community with a wide range of activities throughout the week which aim to draw people together for friendship, mutual support and common interests.  Our fundraising project is aimed at making the building more environmentally friendly by improving the heating and insulation of the building as well as providing a more accessible entrance.”

Day 20 – Sarah, supporting Frends of Lew Trenchard School
“The donation will help our cause provide additional activities for Lew Trenchard Primary School children. We aim to enhance their experience at school by providing equipment (we’ve recently funded an outdoor classroom) and activities such as school trips and events (the most recent being a Christmas pantomime).  Every donation is a huge help in trying to enhance the variety of experiences provided and this donation is a very welcome boost at Christmas – thank you!”

Day 22 – Suzanne, supporting Terrier SOS
“This will really help buy food and much needed resources for the dogs in kennels here and in Europe, and the dogs in foster homes awaiting a forever family. Christmas is a really busy and difficult time for the charity as they need to care for the long-termers and have a policy of not releasing any dogs into new homes at this time of year. I am so glad that my simple daily clicking on the annual advent calendar this year has proved successful and made Terrier SOS winners in this very useful scheme.”

Day 25 – Gillian, supporting Wiltshire Federation of Womens Institutes

They have won a £10,000 donation and a £1,000 voucher, courtesy of John Lewis & Partners!

“I am absolutely delighted to have won the Advent Calendar Giveaway prize for the Wiltshire Federation of WIs.

For almost two years, the pandemic has made things very difficult for the charity as they have struggled to provide the support, friendship and company that being a WI member involves. The WI thrives on meeting in real life for coffee, cake and catch-ups which has been almost impossible. With restrictions up and down, this money will help keep the Federation running so they can offer their unique opportunities to educate and have fun for women either online, via post and, when they can, through live events to all their members across Wiltshire. The pandemic has made everyone feel more isolated and I feel very thankful that, with this unexpected win, the Federation can continue to support every one of it’s members for 2022 and beyond.

For anyone who has not used easyfundraising before, I would highly recommend it. I mean, who doesn’t enjoy shopping online from the comfort of their own home? It’s so easy, there’s an app reminder so you’ll never forget, and every penny adds to the funds raised for a good cause and, with the possibility of winning extra money, it’s so worth it.

I never win anything so this was a bonus Christmas present for my nominated charity who I know will be as thrilled as I am. Thank you to all the easyfundraising team – I shall most definitely carry on using this website.”
