Do you shop online?  There is now a simple way to help raise funds for Griffin with very little effort - a fundraising website, which takes five minutes to set up and is then accessed in seconds to help you raise money for Griffin every time that you shop online at a range of shops, including Amazon, Tesco and Sainsbury.  The simplest way to do it is to download the easyfundraising app to your mobile or tablet and to register your interest in raising funds for Griffin Bowls Club.  This takes about five minutes.  Then everytime you shop, you simply tap on the app and it will take you to the site you want to shop from - Tesco, Amazon etc., - and Griffin will get a donation from your spend.  What's more, you can ask family and friends to do the same - they don't have to be members of Griffin.  It's as simple as that!  You can, if you wish, also ask for regular updates on your contributions, join a Facebook Friends group etc., - nice touches, but not essential to get you started.  

If you would like to take advantage of this simple way of raising funds, but are unsure of how to download the app, I am happy to help.
