Buy online and boost Give Us A Chance appeal
Shoppers who like to buy online can boost the coffers of Devizes Opportunity Centre in just a few clicks.
The Gazette's Give Us A Chance appeal is helping Devizes Opportunity Centre
Consumers can help our Give Us A Chance Appeal by signing up with Give As You Live which works with 3,518 stores which have pledged to pay commission on every online purchase to the charity of a person’s choice.
There is no extra cost, as the commission is included in the price advertised. All people have to do is go to www.giveasyoulive.com and choose Devizes Opportunity Centre as their charity. Next, they install Give As You Live and then shop in the normal way.
Opportunity Centre manager Betty Newman said: “This is a very easy way for people to help us without it costing them anything.”
