Support Our Work

We are a small charity making a huge difference to the lives of children and families in Jersey.  We urgently need your help to continue and expand our work.

Here are some simple ways you can help.  Thank you.

Collecting Tins

We have lots of collecting tins ready to go into local shops, tea rooms, cafes and churches and we need your help to make this happen.  It couldn’t be simpler.

  • Take a tin (or two or three!): Contact us to arrange to collect the tin or tins from us.  When you pop in to collect your tins, we’ll take your details and ask you where you are going to put them. 
  • Keep an eye on it: Put the tin in the place of your choice, for example newsagents, garage, tea room or your local church, and keep an eye on it.   
  • Collect when full: We will then give you an empty tin and a certificate for the venue to say thank you and how much they have raised for us to date.
  • Multiple tins: If you are able to oversee several tins then that would be amazing!

Thank you very much indeed.

Easy Fundraising

Did you know that whenever you shop online – for anything from gifts to flights and holidays – you could be collecting free donations for us?

All you have to do is shop through easyfundraising when you shop online and we will get a percentage of everything you spend (the actual percentage will depend on who you are shopping with and what you are buying).

There are over 3,000 shops and sites on board ready to make a donation, including Amazon, John Lewis, EBay and Selfridges – it doesn’t cost you a penny extra!

It’s as easy as 1, 2, 3…

  1.  Join.  Head to https://www.easyfundraising.org.uk/causes/jerseychildcaretrust/ and click on the icon to join for free.
  2.  Shop.  Every time you shop from now on, remember to go through your Easyfundraising icon on your phone, tablet or pc.  There will be a little ‘e’ icon to click on and all the retailers are listed there for you to visit their websites.
  3. Collect.  Once you have paid for your shopping, Easyfundraising will collect the donation from the retailer and will make the donation to us at no extra cost whatsoever!

There are no catches or hidden charges and it is amazing how quickly the donations add up.

We will be really grateful for your donations.

 

Stamps

Save your stamps for us!  We can get between £13 and £24 per kilo.

Tear your used stamps off all your envelopes.

Allow plenty of room around the stamp to ensure it doesn’t get damaged.  We will do the rest.

Make a collection of them and drop them in to us or post them to us.

Please include your contact details to receive our free ‘Putting Families First’ newsletter, twice a year.

So grateful for all donations.  Every stamp helps us help more children.
