How You Could Support Us

There are THREE really easy ways to support us at the Horsham & Shipley Community Project.

For those who buy anything online - presents, holidays, groceries - anything, please sign up to GIVE AS YOU LIVE. A tiny % of each transaction comes to us, donated by the retailer. It costs you NOTHING,  but is worthwhile for us.  Click here for info  https://donate.giveasyoulive.com/charity/hscp

A second possibility is to buy a weekly lottery ticket from the HORSHAM DISTRICT COMMUNITY LOTTERY - a ticket costs £1 per week. 50p comes to us, 10p to HDC good causes, and 40p in admin. You have the change of winning prizes from £25 to £25,000! www.horshamdistrictcommunitylottery.co.uk 

If you use Amazon to buy online, please use Amazon's own charity contribution scheme, AMAZON SMILE . Like Give As You Live, Amazon will donate a tiny amount to your chosen charity. please sign up, choose Horsham & Shipley Community Project and make sure that you buy through Amazon Smile rather than just Amazon.  it makes no difference to you at all, but the tiny amounts into HSCP can really build up. www.Smile.Amazon.com
