Boost Our u3a Funds AT NO COST TO YOU!

As an Internet user you can help prevent further increases by boosting our funds at no cost to you. How?

By Changing Your Search Engine

Give Google a rest and use Easysearch, where we’ve registered Buxton and District u3a. Easysearch combines several search engines - Yahoo, Bing,, MIVA, and many more, so it is effective. However, every time you use it, you’ll earn 0.55p for our account! Not a lot? Not if it's just you - but if all our members who have Internet access used Easysearch once a day, every day, we’d rack up over £600 in a year. Not a bad return! Also, registration is not required. So, click Easysearch to use it straight away!

By Doing Your Usual Internet Shopping via the Easyfundraising Portal

If you already shop online with retailers such as Amazon, M&S, Argos, Tesco, John Lewis, Comet, Vodafone, eBay, Boden, then sign up for free at Easyfundraising to raise money for us while you shop, at no extra cost to you! Easyfundraising is just a gateway – their 2000+ partner retailers’ sites are the same ones you go to if you click on them directly. However, if you use Easyfundraising’s links to the retailer, then a percentage of whatever you spend comes directly to us. Some retailers’ donations can be as much as 15% of your purchase – and some also donate for free activities e.g. registering with them. So, please visit Easyfundraising to learn more.
