Support from your sofa
Have you tried being a sofa supporter?
With so many of our normal activities on hold right now, we appreciate how hard it is trying to support your favourite charity or thinking of ways to raise money for us.
We need your support more than ever and it couldn’t be easier to make a difference- all from the comfort of your sofa.
You can support us just by doing your normal weekly shopping or spoiling yourself with something new. By treating your cat or pampering your dog. You could round-up the pennies to pounds, or give yourself the chance to win a great prize!
Go on… provide support from your sofa.
If you have any suggestions of other ways to support from your sofa, or companies we could work with, please email us.
