Shop online and raise vital funds

CARLISLE Mencap is one of the chosen charities for two major online fundraising shopping websites – and by using them you can help us raise pounds and pounds!

Posted Wednesday, 29th September 2021

SINCE the Covid crisis hit the UK, more and more people have been buying their shopping online – from luxury goods to toys, clothing to sports gear. And by using either Give as you Live or easyfundraising – or preferably both! – you can help bring in the pounds for Carlisle Mencap too.

Give as you Live Online generates charitable giving from your everyday shopping. Their retail partners value your loyalty which enable their "thank you" to be your donation to your chosen charity. 

Give as you Live has raised more than £15 million for various charities in recent years. Their retail partners includes some very famous names including John Lewis, Argos, Sainsbury’s, Tesco and M&S.

Go to the website link shown below and start shopping through the website, app, or even better download the Donation Reminder app so you never forget to shop and raise. So go to:  .

Meanwhile easyfundraising – feel good shopping, has raised more than £35 million for good causes since 2005 and is the UK’s biggest charity shopping site. They have more than 6,000 retailers involved including again some of the biggest names on the High Street, like Boots, Amazon, Expedia and Just Eat.

You just go to the website – see link below – visit retailers and then shop as normal, and then if you choose Carlisle Mencap we will receive free funds!

So what are you waiting for. Go to
