Shoppers are being urged to raise much-needed funds for the Kent, Surrey & Sussex Air Ambulance by ordering their Christmas presents online.
Buyers can purchase goods at www.everyclick.com/kentairambulance; www.everyclick.com/surreyairambulance; www.everyclick.com/sussexairambulance or www.buy.at/kentairambulance; www.buy.at/surreyairambulance; www.buy.at/sussexairambulance and help keep the helicopter flying at the same time.
Everyclick users can raise money for the life-saving charity for free as they search the web, shop online and trade on e-Bay.
Customers can also buy gifts from High Street giants such as Asda, Littlewoods, Marks & Spencer, H.Samuel, GAME and Zavvi on the separate site Buy.at.
County Fundraiser Lynn Hyder said: “Our lives revolve more and more around the Internet and what better way to take the strain out of High Street shopping than by doing it all at the click of a button.
“Not only will shopping online save time in the queues but it also has the potential to raise hundreds of pounds for a cause which any one of us could need one day.”
Online shoppers pay the same price as they would on the retailer’s main website which is often lower than the High Street price.
Commission from every purchase is given to the charity by the retailer although the percentages vary.
Kent, Surrey & Sussex Air Ambulance needs £3.4m a year to keep the helicopter flying and relies almost entirely on voluntary public donations.
If you would like to make a donation to the Air Ambulance please call 01622 833833. Alternatively cheques can be made payable to Kent Air Ambulance Trust, Surrey Air Ambulance or Sussex Air Ambulance and posted to Wheelbarrow Park Estate, Pattenden Lane, Marden, Kent, TN12 9QJ
