Late last night we passed a fantastic milestone – together, we have now raised over £2,000,000 for deserving causes.

Social enterprise: putting positivity into the business world

16/06/2011

We’re all a little fed up of hearing the doom and gloom of government cuts and the closure of companies, so it’s very refreshing to read that social enterprises are ‘growing at twice the speed of other businesses’. A social enterprise is an organisation whose objectives are motivated by wanting to do good and it’s great to hear that businesses which have the potential to make a difference are the ones that are thriving.

With the current economic climate, people have been struggling to be as generous towards charities, whether this is with their time or money. But social enterprises allow people to go about their daily life AND do something good, without doing a whole lot extra. This is especially true with Everyclick, as through products like Give as you Live™, no change in behaviour is needed – simply do your normal shopping online and you can give to the charity of your choice.

We hope that social enterprises will continue to grow, so we can help the UK’s charities and causes when they need it most.

Featured Fundraiser: Frank Moore and Coast to Coast

01/06/2011

An idea born long ago and fleshed out and finalized on a jolly night in the local led to four intrepid fundraisers agreeing to walk from St. Bee’s Head to Robin Hood’s Bay, following the established Wainwright route. Like many a stunning plan hatched over a glass or six, the implications of the 192 miles of walking were slow to dawn, but the tremendous support from those friends who didn’t have to actually join in the walking, did not allow for any change of heart.
