Many of our clubs and organisations have been hard hit by lockdown with fundraising events and activities cancelled so we are launching a new opportunity to generate additional income for your club.

Active Humber works in partnership with fundraising website easyfundraising. It's a very simple idea – register your club or group as a good cause with easyfundraising to collect cashback donations when anyone connected to the club shops online with 4000 well known retailers including Amazon, eBay, Wickes, Argos, John Lewis & Partners, Sweaty Betty,, Trainline, Just Eat and M&S.

It's free to register and over 25,000 sports clubs are already using the scheme to fund their equipment costs, coaching qualifications and other running costs.

The benefits:

  • Regular, on-going revenue stream for your club
  • Easy to set up and requires minimal management
  • Rated 4.6 stars on Trustpilot

An average online shopper could easily earn your club £30 per year through easyfundraising. Multiply that by the number of people connected to your activity and you can see how beneficial this can be.
