Did you know that whenever you buy anything online, from your weekly shop, car insurance, mobile phone to your annual holiday, you can be collecting free donations for Crossroads Care Wokingham?
There are over 3,000 shops linked up to easyfundraising, this includes Amazon, John Lewis, Waitrose, Debenhams, Aviva, thetrainline, eBay, Clarks, Aviva, 02 and Sainsbury’s. Depending on the shop/store a percentage of what you have spent (e.g. Clarks – up to 5%, Waitrose – up to £2.50, Expedia – up to 6%, Amazon – up to 1.5%) will be donated to enable us to offer more respite breaks to local carers.

Thanks to the hard work of Julia Tredwell, our Fundraising Trustee, two further events have been held to raise much-needed funds for our work.
Our second Crossroads Quiz, held at Sand Martins Golf Club on 20th April 2018 raised a wonderful £610 helping us to provide much-needed breaks to local carers looking after someone with a life-limiting illness.
