Farlington Village Hall

Now you can support Farlington Village Hall from your living room whilst waiting for our next event!

As you know, Farlington Village Hall is a charity (No. 235406) registered with the Charity Commission of England and Wales.  I’m sure that you will agree that the resurrection of the hall has been a great asset to the village improving social interaction, community spirit and helping the elderly feel less isolated in our rural community.  It is just coming up to one year since the hall refurbishment was completed to the point where it was able to function again.  There is still work to do but further grants will have to obtained for that in due course.  However, we do need to keep funds coming in to pay for the insurance, electricity and ongoing maintenance costs.  You can help with this by supporting our events programme and making donations for non-ticketed events but we now have a new initiative which will also help us raise funds.

Farlington Village Hall is now registered with “Give as You Live”, a regulated organisation that helps charities raise funds.  It is very simple to use.  You simply go to giveasyoulive.com and sign up for free, nominating our charity for your support.  Then, whenever you shop online, if you first go the the Give as You Live website you have over 4200 stores to choose from including all the big names such as Amazon, Ebay, Sainsbury, Tesco, Waitrose etc. etc.  Each time you shop, a percentage of your spend goes directly into the Farlington Village Hall bank account thus topping up our funds.  It is totally free and the websites are exactly the same as you would visit if you went directly and sometimes special offers are available through the Give as You Live access point.  You can also do utility switching, buy insurance and pre-loaded store cards to help raise funds.

This week, to kick off, is particularly special as its Give As You Live Week.  So each day from 6th to 12th August, there is a special promotion with extra donations on offer for our charity.  Each day you will receive an alert telling you what is on offer and from whom.  If you like it go spend, if not, hit delete!

Monday 6th August:  It’s @GiveasyouLive week! Win a £50 donation for us AND a £50 shopping voucher for yourself when you download the Give as you Live iOS app and complete a shop! Download now:  https://www.giveasyoulive.com/giveasyouliveweek

So, please, if you shop online, consider going through the Give as You Live website first and help your village hall thrive for years to come.  At each AGM, we can report on how much has been raised in the year…… so lets get going.

Many thanks for your support and happy surfing!
