Christmas is creeping up on us (arrrgh!) and if your household is anything like mine - from now till Dec, they'll be frequent knocks on the door, with various boxes and parcels getting delivered for all of my online purchases.

This is where 'Easy Fundraising' comes in to play and how it can be of great help to our club.

It's a simple App that you can download onto your phone/tablet or use on a computer/laptop.

Basically, when you buy things online, Loftus Dolphins Swimming Club will get paid a donation from the retailer (as a way of saying thanks!). It costs you no extra to make your purchase - it's just free and much needed funds to help with the running costs of our 100% volunteer led club.

Once registered, if you simply click onto the Easy Fundraising App and then tap onto the retailer that you are looking to purchase from. Easy Fundraising will then direct you straight to that retailer's website, where you can then go ahead and make your purchase as normal. A donation will then be made into the Loftus Dolphins Fundraising pot. Simple as that!

Over the years (as of early Sept 2022) £2578 has been raised via Easy Fundraising - all from just a click of a button.

7000+ retailers take part, including the likes of Amazon, Argos, various clothes retailers, Just Eat, Trainline, TUI, insurance companies, mobile phone networks....the list goes on and on.


  • Make sure your shopping basket is always empty with whichever retailer you're planning to purchase from, before going onto the Easy Fundraising App. The items must be added to your basket once Easy Fundraising has re-directed you to the retailer. Some retailers will refuse to pay out the donation if your items were already in the basket.

  • Every purchase online is worth putting through the app no matter how big or small - a 5p donation is well worth it when 60+ people have also had a 5/6/7p donation. It soon tots up! You can get REALLY BIG donations from items such as Insurance (Compare the Market etc are all on Easy Fundraising), also Mobile phone contracts, holidays, furniture and electrical items etc - so that's a way to raise 'mega bucks!'

  • You can invite your friends and family to join. There is a personal link that you can send to them from your Easy Fundraising App. These personal links often come with offers like once the person you've recommended signs up and raises £5, then £5 will also be added to your donations too. So, it's a great way to boost your donations for the club.

  • Finally, you can check out your position on the 'Fundraising Leader Board' (on the App) - This is my favourite thing! It's great to see how your purchases push you up the leader board. (You can also be anonymous if you don't want your name to appear on the board)

COMMENTS ARE TURNED ON FOR THIS POST - So if you have any queries/questions, tips, or if you'd like to share news of a great donation that you've just received - comment away in the box (right at the bottom of this page).

Many Thanks - and Happy Shopping :-)
