Online fundraising hits first landmarks
The Ashes’ partnership with EasyFundraising has hit its first landmark, with £1 raised by supporters just by using our free online search engine, and more than a fiver banked in total.
The search engine – which can be found at http://howdenashes.easysearch.org.uk – raises around half a penny for every response which is clicked on (there has to be a click through, rather than just a search).
The Ashes’ partnership with EasyFundraising was only launched this summer and we are already seeing encouraging figures with sign-ups and donations – with more than £5 in confirmed donations.
It is an encouraging start that people are using the web to raise money for us. And, as a charity, we really appreciate ever penny that anyone can spare for us – it will all be put to good use!
