There are lots of ways that you can support Trust Links that don't involve making a donation directly or volunteering at one of our sites. Apart from fundraising for us or making a donation through our secure Virgin Money page, here are some other ways that you can support Trust Links and ensure that we can continue our work in and around Southend.
If you have an Amazon account, shopping through AmazonSmile means that for every purchase you make Amazon will make a donation to the charity of your choice. This doesn't cost you anything extra; Amazon will donate 0.5% of the value of every order out of their own pocket. All you have to do is go to smile.amazon.co.uk and select Trust Links Limited as your chosen charity.
With Christmas coming up, there's no better time to sign up for AmazonSmile and make sure that your Christmas shopping is giving something back to the community.
Did you know that every time you shop in Co-op you could be supporting Trust Links? Co-op donate 1% of what their members spend in-store on a charity of their choice, so even buying a pint of milk could help our community work.
You need to be a Co-op member to do this so, if you haven't already, sign-up to become a member of the Co-op today and choose Trust Links as your charity:

The Essex Lottery is a weekly online lottery set up to support local charities across the county. Buying a ticket costs just £1, and you can win up to £25,000. Buy a ticket on behalf of Trust Links, and 60% of your ticket price will go to Trust Links and fund our work in the community.

Like online shopping? Start your search through easyfundraising.org.uk, and the charity of your choice will receive a small donation from the companies that you buy from. Like Amazon Smile, it doesn't cost you a penny and it's a great way to combine your online shopping with your support for Trust Links.
All you need to do is sign up for free at easyfundraising.org.uk, select Trust Links as your chosen cause, and then start shopping! When you make purchases on websites that you reached through Easyfundraising they will make a donation to Trust Links.
Did you know that The Royals Shopping Centre in Southend chose Trust Links as their Charity of the Year in 2019? The Royals have been working hard to fundraise for us all year. If you have some spare change, why not pop down to The Royals and drop your coins into their coin spinner? All proceeds will come to Trust Links in April 2020.
In Rochford, The Marlborough Head has very kindly put out some collection buckets at the bar for Trust Links. We've worked with The Marlborough Head before: they have helped us with fundraising throughout 2019, and so if it's your local in Rochford please consider showing your support when it's your round.
