There are 4,000+ shops and sites ready to help you donate. These include eBay, Argos, John Lewis, ASOS, Booking.com, and M&S, to name a few, and it doesn’t cost you anything to help us raise funds.
All you need to do:
- Head over to www.easyfundraising.org.uk/causes/neat/ and join for free
- Every time you shop online, go to the easyfundraising website first, select North East Arts Touring, find the retailer you want, and start shopping.
- After you have checked out, the retailer will donate to NEAT for no cost whatsoever! There are no catches or hidden charges, and we will be grateful for your assistance.
You can also set up a Donation Reminder which can be helpful. It pops up every time you shop online with registered retailers.
Leaving a gift in your will is one of the most generous and heartfelt donations you can make.
You could help NEAT make plans with more confidence and security. Your kindness, whatever the amount, can help us support the brilliant Volunteer Promoters who commit to making the North East such a culturally vibrant place to live and visit. You will also provide opportunities for children and young people to experience theatre performances in their school. All legacies given will be free of all taxes as NEAT is a registered Charity.
If you would like more information on how to leave a legacy gift to us, please get in touch with Emyr Bell at [email protected].
