10 November 2020

With the festive period getting closer and Christmas just around the corner, shopping for gifts for our loved ones will be at the top of all of our to-do lists. Christmas shopping in 2020 is very different to what we’re used to. Due to social distancing and lockdown measures we’re skipping the crazy crowds and long queues in shops, and heading online for stocking fillers instead.


easyfundraising is the UK’s largest charity shopping site, and is a really easy way for you to support good causes whilst shopping online – at no extra cost to yourself!

You can raise funds for YMCA Newcastle with easyfundraising in just three easy steps.

  1. Join – Select ‘Newcastle-upon-Tyne YMCA‘ as your cause to support on easyfundraising and join for free – it takes just 2 minutes.
  2. Shop – When shopping online, first head to easyfundraising.org.uk or download their app and then select from over 4,200 retailers listed on their website. Then shop as normal!
  3. Raise – When you make a purchase, the retailer will make a donation to us on your behalf.

For more information visit easyfundraising’s How it Works guide.


When our supporters are shopping on Amazon via AmazonSmile, YMCA Newcastle will receive a donation of 0.5% of your purchase.

All you need to do enable this to happen is to access Amazon via our AmazonSmile link: https://smile.amazon.co.uk/ch/1070578-0 then browse and shop as you usually would and Amazon will do the rest, it’s as easy as that!
