Wiltshire Times: ou can do your bit to help the Gazette’s Give us a chance appeal 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 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.”

n Slimmers in the Cassie’s Chunkies fundraising group have lost more than 1st 4lbs between them in their first two weeks of dieting. The group – set up by Cassie Jones, whose son, Chase, goes to the centre – have their final weigh-in on June 30. They hope to raise more than £1,000 for our Give Us A Chance appeal.

n Volunteers and donations for the Worton Family Fun Day – in the village on July 26 – are still needed. The event, being organised by family of Isambard Picford, who attends the centre, will include a dog show, fairground attractions, vintage vehicles and novelty characters.
