Bumblebee fundraising


Amazon.co.uk
Each time you access Amazon.co.uk via this link or the widget below we receive a donation worth 8% of your total purchase, at no extra cost to you.  Last year, we raised  in excess of £3,500 through this Amazon associate scheme.  That’s a lot of wildflowers for our bees.  So, please remember to use our link to do your Amazon shopping - and tell your friends too!


JustGiving
Are you training for a charity event?  Would you like to raise money for a great cause?  JustGiving makes creating a sponsorship page quick and easy; and makes it so simple for your friends and family to support your cause.  In the past we have had some amazing and intrepid members raise funds through dressing likes bees and running a marathon and undertaking gruelling bicycle rides.  We are pleased to support these efforts through our mail and electronic newsletters when appropriate.

Please visit www.justgiving.com/bumblebeect
or email enquiries@bumblebeeconservation.org for more information.

Easyfundraising
Whenever you buy anything online, such as gifts, insurance, mobile phones, groceries, clothes, books, train tickets and hotel rooms you can raise a free donation for the Bumblebee Conservation Trust. There are over 2,700 retailers registered with the site, including John Lewis, eBay, Argos, Marks and Spencer, Apple and Waitrose to name a few. They will all donate a percentage of what you spend to us to say thank you for shopping with them. It’s really that simple!

Here’s how it works:

1. Sign up – go to http://www.easyfundraising.org.uk/invite/2P51H7/ and click on the button to sign up. By using this link, we will also benefit from an extra £1 when you make your first donation with easyfundraising.
2. Shop – from the easyfundraising website, search for the retailer you’d like to shop with and click through to the retailer to make your purchase. This tells the retailer you came from easyfundraising. The price is exactly the same as if you’d visited the retailer directly.
3. Get a donation – after you’ve made your purchase, the retailer will give you a cash reward that easyfundraising turns into a donation for Bumblebee Conservation Trust.

No cost, no catch!

Please be assured that using the easyfundraising website will not cost you a penny. There are no catches or hidden charges and Bumblebee Conservation Trust benefits from any donations you make once registered.

“Few people realise just how important bumblebees are. They are charming little things and a pleasure to see, but they also do an essential job which many people take for granted. If bumblebees continue to decline then we face ecological turmoil. Join BBCT today and support their important work.”
