2. Easyfundraising

Do you shop online? Then why not raise funds for NSYO at the same time with

It’s easy to raise funds for the National Youth String Orchestra! If you already shop online with retailers such as Amazon, Argos, John Lewis, Comet, iTunes, eBay etc, then we need you to sign up for free to raise money while you shop!

So how does it work?

You shop directly with the retailer as you would normally, but if you sign up to and use the links on the easyfundraising site to take you to the retailer, then a percentage of whatever you spend comes directly to us at no extra cost to yourself.

How much can you raise?

A percentage of your spend with retailers such as M&S, Amazon, WH Smith, John Lewis, PC World etc is donated through the web-site. There are over 2,000 retailers on the site, and some of the donations can be as much as 15% of your purchase. You can purchase car, house, travel insurance, sign up to telephone, new utility suppliers; these generate a one of payment often substantial.

So far together we have raised over £447.68 with easyfundraising. We need your help to keep donations coming in. Sign up at and start making a difference...simply by shopping.
