Do you or any family/friends shop on line? Amazon has created its own donation to charities link as you shop for things on line. As with ‘Give as you live’, you need to get to the Amazon shop via a web site called www.smile.amazon.co.uk. When you first register you are asked to nominate your charity. You just type in the box The Derby and Sandiacre Canal Trust. When you get to the Amazon shop via the smile link you will see D&SCT in the top banner. As with ‘Give as you live’ which gets you to a lot of other shops, 0.5% of your purchase will go to the Trust to help our restoration plans. So don’t forget to add the smile link to your favourites!
