THERE’S no better feeling than helping out someone in need.
I already know how generous Savers can be, after you lot donated £16,000 from your Sun Savers wallets to our Christmas charity appeal. And with Red Nose Day happening this Friday, I’ve put together some simple ways to shop, save and give back to charity.
Tom Martin It’s Red Nose Day on Friday and we have some great. simple way you can give back to charity
Swap old clothes for vouchers. Take a bag of unwanted clothes with at least one M&S-labelled item to Oxfam and you’ll be given a £5 M&S voucher to use when you spend at least £35 in store. Or trade a bag of any old clothes to recycle for a £5 voucher at your nearest H&M. There’s a £25 minimum spend with the voucher but it’s much better than chucking your stuff in the bin!Get a £5 voucher for every donated bag
Turn your old mobile phone into cash. Got an old handset gathering dust in a drawer or keen to upgrade? Sell it to fonebank.com/oxfam and donate a percentage to charity at the same time. An iPhone 7 could make £150, so you could pocket £112.50 and donate 25 per cent to charity.Earn £112.50 and donate £37.50 for an iPhone 7
Earn money while giving. Sites such as topcashback.co.uk have a charity section that allows you to earn 10.5 per cent cashback when shopping with a range of charities including The Royal British Legion and Help for Heroes.You can also donate your cashback earnings to a charity of your choice.Topcashback members have donated more than £130,000 in cashback to date, so small donations really do add up.Donate up to £300 cashback a year while getting up to 10 per cent off purchases
Donate your rewards points. You can collect Nectar points if you donate to Oxfam and “tag your bag” with gift aid tags (ask in-store or get them online at oxfam.org.uk). You could then use those points to buy a life-changing gift from the charity, such as a safe source of water, from just £2.50.Earn 1p in Nectar points for every £1 your donated item sells for.
