SHOPPING ONLINE? DON’T FORGET YOU CAN GIVE BACK AT NO EXTRA COST!

We know many of you will be busy thinking about Christmas shopping and with lockdown here we know many if you will be shopping online.🌐

We highly encourage you to shop local and support small businesses (check our our BDCPS Virtual Craft Fair on Facebook!), but there are always some things you just need from the bigger shops!🛒🛍

So if you do use Amazon please use SMILE.AMAZON and we get a very little percentage donated back to us – but little does help and it’s definitely better than nothing!😊

The other option is to use EASYFUNDRAISING.CO.UK which has links to loads of shops and will donate back a percentage of what you spend.🤩

Both of these cost you NOTHING to use, so it’s win win!🥳

VIRTUAL CHRISTMAS CRAFT FAIR

BDCPS VIRTUAL CHRISTMAS CRAFT FAIR IS HERE!
We are delighted and super excited to announce we have set up our own charity ‘Virtual Christmas Craft Fair’ so you can support your favourite little charity, as well as support small businesses!

It’s a WIN WIN situation and we want you to share the page, invite your facebook friends and anyone who may be interested in selling!

For our stall holders, it is a minimum donation of £5.00 to join and sell your items.

You will have a stall number allocated once payment is confirmed and then you can post as many times as you like to sell your own products!

If you have your own small business, or enjoy making and creating and need a platform – this is the page for you!🤩

Here is the link to join 
https://www.facebook.com/groups/bdcpsvirtualcraftfair

Please get in touch if you have ANY questions! Full details on how to join are in the announcements section of the page.

It may feel like there are bigger things to think about this year, and somehow because Christmas may seem more stripped back, it reminds us how much more the little things are. Show your love for those who mean the most by getting them something unique, personal or handmade by small businesses, who have also had a tough year!🥰

Happy shopping all 💝

Give Back on Giving Tuesday

The countdown is on for Giving Tuesday 2020! This year has been a tough one and we want you to take some positivity from this year by helping to make a real difference.

We hope you have all felt supported and cared for during this pandemic and the challenges it has thrown at us. This is your chance to give back, however you can. We all have something we can give!

Giving Tuesday is on 1st December. It is an international day of giving, after the Black Friday and Cyber Monday madness! All ages and abilities can do something to help BDCPS in whatever way you wish.

We have a pretty special #GivingTuesday campaign, so pop the date in your calendars and join us on the day for some inspiration to get involved.

Here are some ideas you may want think about for Giving Tuesday 2020…

  • Are you working from home? How about donating the cost of your commute for a day/week/month?
  • Have you taken up running or another outdoor activity? Can you set a challenge like a sponsored walk/run?
  • Date night at home? Can you give back the cost of a meal out that you have saved this lockdown!?
  • Are you a crafter? Or a sewing bee? We are looking for local creators to help us with some little projects we are planning as part of our parent carer wellbeing. Please email if you can help: ellie@bdcps.org.uk
  • December is our ‘Mince Pie Month’ – can you hold a virtual fundraiser to help out?

Whatever it is – we would LOVE you to be involved. This year more than ever!

Please do get in touch if you can help.

Feel Good Friday’s!
