The Dale Trust are appealing to supporters to help in their fundraising efforts for the Education Suite through doing their Christmas Shopping online.
The Trust has raised in excess of £1,500 over the years through the Easyfundraising website. For those who've never used it before, it involves registering with their website, and then going through their website for any online shopping.
There are loads of household names on there such as Amazon, Tesco, John Lewis etc, and every purchase will see the retailer making a donation to the Trust. The prices you pay will be exactly the same as if you searched for it anyway, so given how many people shop online these days for Christmas, it's free money.
This year, rather than asking you to purchase through Easyfundraising for the Trust, every penny raised through Easyfundraising between now and Christmas will be donated to the club's Education Suite. This will enhance the club's ability to develop young players, whilst benefiting the club's position in the community through the tie up with Hopwood Hall College.
At the start of the appeal, the total from Easyfundraising is £1,664.49, so every penny above and beyond that will make its way to the Education Suite. From memory, I think we raised in excess of £200 during the Xmas period last year, so it would be great to beat that.
