MU to take easy steps to fundraising target

MUNorwichLogo400Mothers’ Union Norwich Diocese is aiming to raise £3,000 by signing up to to continue its work with children, couples and families. After 4 years the current funding for some community projects has now ceased.

The team at Mothers’ Union Norwich want to hit their fundraising target by December 2014 to enable them to provide resources and train facilitators to continue their existing projects and facilitate new ones which enhance and support family life.

The charity is now aiming to sign up its members and supporters to to help boost their fundraising for free.

“Christian care for families is what we are about –enabling loving, respectful and flourishing relationships” said Eunice Norwood, administrator of the new fundraising campaign.  “What is wonderful about easyfundraising is that it is absolutely free to us and our supporters and a very quick and simple way to raise funds for our charity.  The site is easy to use, and we welcome donations made to us via from all who believe our work with families to be of value to the communities around us.”

Funds are raised in a very simple way. Supporters register to help a good cause and whenever they shop through the site with any of the 2,700 retailers listed on, the retailer gives a small percentage of what’s been spent back to the good cause to say thank you for shopping with them.

Many high street names are now involved including Amazon, John Lewis, eBay and Tesco giving causes and supporters a great opportunity to raise funds.

Mothers’ Union Norwich is one of thousands of causes across the UK which has benefited from more than £5 million in donations raised through easyfundraising, with more than half a million supporters signed up to the site.

The cash has been raised since the Staffordshire based company launched eight years ago in 2005. Supporters shop through the site to earn cash donations from retailers for their cause.

The company was set up by Ian Woodroffe, a former telecoms account manager, who, while recovering from cancer, wanted to use the boom in internet shopping to help cash strapped charities generate much needed funds.

“I am delighted Mothers’ Union Norwich has signed up to easyfundraising. We wish them the best of luck in reaching their fundraising target,” he said.
