Northern Pride is aiming to raise £5000 to help fund Newcastle Pride by signing up to easyfundraising.org.uk.
The team at Northern Pride want to hit their fundraising target by 30th June 2015 so they can help fund the zones at Newcastle Pride 2015.

Northern Pride is now aiming to sign up its supporters to easyfundraising.org.uk to help boost their fundraising for free.

“This is a fantastic way for people to support Northern Pride by just changing their online shopping route at no cost to them and help keep Newcastle Pride FREE. The support we receive will go towards our aims of the elimination of discrimination, advancing education and raising awareness in equality and diversity issues faced by lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) people; and Cultivating a sentiment in favour of equality and diversity to create a safe environment where LGBT people can promote and explore their culture and work in the interests of the public benefit to remove any social exclusion” said Mark Nichols Chairman of Northern Pride.

“What is wonderful about easyfundraising is that it is absolutely free to us and our supporters and a very quick and simple way to raise funds for charities.

“Our supporters have commented on how easy the website is to use and some have saved it as their homepage as a reminder to use whenever they shop online.

“All charities should sign up to this and get supporters on board - the pennies donated from each online purchase soon turn into pounds.”

Funds are raised in a very simple way. Supporters register to help a good cause and whenever they shop through the site with any of the 2,700 retailers listed on easyfundraising.org.uk, the retailer gives a small percentage of what’s been spent back to the good cause to say thank you for shopping with them.
Many high street names are now involved including Amazon, John Lewis, eBay and Tesco giving causes and supporters a great opportunity to raise funds.

Northern Pride is one of thousands of causes across the UK which has benefitted from more than £5 million in donations raised through easyfundraising, with more than half a million supporters signed up to the site.

The cash has been raised since the Staffordshire based company launched eight years ago in 2005. Supporters shop through the site to earn cash donations from retailers for their cause.

The company was set up by Ian Woodroffe, a former telecoms account manager, who, while recovering from cancer, wanted to use the boom in internet shopping to help cash strapped charities generate much needed funds.

“I am delighted Northern Pride has signed up to easyfundraising. We wish them the best of luck in reaching their fundraising target,” he said.
