There are many ways that you can support the work of the Eastern Transport Collection Society. From thinking of us when you're doing your online shopping, making a one off donation, or joining the Society as a member, there are many ways that you can play your part in helping to keep our transport road heritage alive.
Shop with us...
The one thing everyone who uses internet shopping can do is to buy via our internet partners, Amazon Smile and easyfundraising.
If you buy anything from Amazon, go to their Amazon Smile site next time you’d like to buy. It’s exactly the same as their main site but Amazon donates 0.5% of your purchase price to the Society on any Amazon purchase you make (there are some exceptions, such as items sold by third parties, gift cards and subscriptions).Visit www.smile.amazon.co.uk,
select the Eastern Transport Collection Society as the charity of your choice and start shopping. It really is as simple as that! Your existing account, Prime membership and details all transfer across when you log in. Just remember to keep visiting the Amazon Smile website in the future.
Easyfundraising is even more generous. Over 4500 retailers, from Marks and Spencer to Tesco, John Lewis, eBay, Expedia and Booking.com, will donate anything from 0.5 to 10% of your purchase value if you access their site via www.easyfundraising.org.uk. It costs you no more than you would pay if you bought directly, and the donation is dealt with entirely automatically. You don’t need to do anything else once you have set up your easyfundraising account – which costs you nothing.
