North West Junior Squad - New fundraising idea
Posted on December 10th, 2009

Sue Butterfield from the NWJS writes:

"North West Junior Squad are again (sorry) raising money, some will go towards their training trip to Norway 2010.

As a new idea from one of our new members we have registered with This is an online shopping site that gives us commission for all sales that are registered to us. It does not cost you anything.

You just go to the site, register and then when/if you do any online shopping if you go through this site they give us money. Just think you can spend money without leaving the house and help the juniors as well. It has over 600 shops, (including M & S, Amazon etc) if you get time please will you take a look and I am sure lots of you now do book hotels/ shop online.

Thank you."
