Make Shopping Worthwhile

Posted: 26th November 2014

This year’s Black Friday, November 28, should be the biggest online shopping day ever in the UK and one Scottish charity is hoping their fundraising will feel the benefit!

Rowan Alba services help the most vulnerable in the community – people of all ages whose lives are in chaos. This could be due to domestic abuse, drug or alcohol dependency or mental health issues.

They provide accommodation for those who are homeless or at risk but, more importantly, we provide the support of staff to prevent homelessness, help people stay in their own homes, resolve their problems and find hope for the future.

Fundraising is no easy matter but Rowan Alba use one tool that is –

Registering with easyfundraising and supporting Rowan Alba means every purchase online generates a free donation to the charity. And it doesn’t cost the shopper a penny!

You can raise funds by shopping at over 2,700 top retailers including John Lewis, Apple, Amazon, M&S and Argos.

Turn this Black Friday into a brighter future for Edinburgh’s most vulnerable people by going to www and supporting Rowan Alba Limited before you shop.
