USING AMAZON TO HELP ST CUTHBERT'S
As Christmas approaches we expect some of us will be shopping online.
If you use Amazon please can we ask you to consider shopping via Amazon Smile as we will receive a donation of 0.5% on your purchases at no cost to you.
(E.g. If you bought 2 items costing £17.25 together using Amazon Smile and so we will receive 86p – while that’s not much if lots of us are using it the donations will mount up and it took no more effort and no more time).
Amazon UK have set up a website where you can choose a charity and that charity then receives money each time you purchase something.
The website is: Smile.amazon.co.uk.
It is exactly the same as the normal/usual Amazon UK site.
