MS Research Training and Education has joined thousands of good causes raising money through easyfundraising – an online gateway to over 2000 well known retailers.

When supporters shop using the links on the easyfundraising site, MS Research Training and Education receive a free donation of up to 15% of the purchase price.

With British shoppers set to spend a staggering £39 billion online this year alone, Dr Rosie Jones from MS Research Training and Education is keen for as many people as possible to sign up:

“Things are tough at the moment and we understand that, so we’re having to look at more creative ways to raise vital funds for MS Research Training and Education.

“More people than ever are shopping online because they know they can pick up a bargain. With easyfundraising our supporters get to shop around for the best deals AND raise money for us at the same time.

Featuring high street names such as M&S, Argos, Amazon and Tesco, easyfundraising has already raised helped UK charities raise over £1.7 million.

And as well as raising funds, the free to use website also gives shoppers access to hundreds of offers, discounts, vouchers and free delivery codes that they won’t find elsewhere.
