One extra click every time you shop online with major retailers will generate a donation of money for the school from that retailer at no extra cost to you! This organisation has agreed with most major retailers (Amazon, M&S, Tesco, Argos, Asda and many more) that they will give a percentage of your total shopping bill back to the school. Once registered, a Yes or No toolbar will pop up for every retailer, asking if you would like to donate to St Peter’s, it really is that easy and only one extra click. We would be so grateful if all our new parents could take the time to register at: www.easyfundraising.org.uk/stpetersrickmansworth
