Fundraising

If you are shopping online please remember that at no cost to you there are fundraising initiatives available to raise funds for the BCA. AmazonSmile is a website operated by Amazon with the same products and prices as Amazon.co.uk. The difference is that when you shop on AmazonSmile, 0.5% of the net purchase price is donated to your chosen charity. We signed up to Amazon Smile at the end of 2019 and so far the BCA has received £33.35.

Another option, Give as you Live, allows you to shop with many different retailers and a percentage of the price is donated. The BCA signed up in 2008 and since then over £89 has been raised, £67 of which is from supporters’ online shopping over the last 5 years.

Please consider signing up to these fundraising schemes and ask your friends and family to sign up too.
