The Giving Machine


Our Scout Group has registered with The Giving Machine (TGM) as a beneficiary charitable cause to help generate cash donations from your online spending without it costing you a penny!

TheGivingMachine is a UK registered charity (1159320), whose sole aim is to facilitate raising money for UK charitable causes and schools.

Once you have registered with TGM, when you shop online via TheGivingMachine at one of your favourite shops that offer commission through TGM, your purchases will generate free cash donation for the Scout Group.

With stores like Amazon, Ebay, M&S, NEXT, Tesco, Sainsbury and John Lewis taking part with hundreds more, we hope that a small commission from everyone’s online shopping could amount to a significant and almost effortless & pain-free boost to the Scout Group funds.

How can it be free from TheGivingMachine on Vimeo.

There is also a browser add-in called “Shop & Give Reminder” to make your life easier for those participating retailers. There are a couple of notable exceptions (e.g. Amazon) which you need to go to The Giving Machine website first. But most participating retailers can be accessed more directly through the add-in flags that appear with you online searches.

You don’t have to be directly linked to our Scout Group to register to help us. Could your relatives, friends and work mates help us too? The more people shopping through TGM for the Group, the more we can raise. Every penny counts! So please give it a go, and pass on the word too!

With many thanks for your continued support. It is greatly appreciated.
