Fundraising…

We are self-funding and re-invest all profits back into the Community Centre building and the activities which take place there. We rely in-part on fundraising support from the local community. There are a few simple ways you can help us to raise funds – some at no cost to you.

1. AmazonSmile: This is a simple and automatic way for you to support a charity of your choice every time you shop with Amazon, at no cost to you. When you shop at https://smile.amazon.co.uk , you’ll find the exact same low prices, vast selection and convenient shopping experience as https://amazon.co.uk, with the added bonus that Amazon will donate a portion of the purchase price to your selected charity.

Details of the scheme can be found here: https://smile.amazon.co.uk/gp/chpf/about

There is a need to select your preferred charity (Cottenham Community Centre) on first usage and then to remember to use https://smile.amazon.co.uk rather than https://amazon.co.uk (although Amazon do remind if you forget).

2. Easyfundraising: Simply follow this link: https://www.easyfundraising.org.uk/causes/cottenhamcc/ On first usage you’ll need to ‘Support this cause’ and register. You’ll then be prompted to ‘Collect Donation’ each time you visit a website of a participating retailer (John Lewis, M&S and many more.) Again, there is no direct cost to you.

3. Community Centre Membership. For details, see: membership.

4. Donations: We are always happy to receive your donations. These can be made by bank transfer using these details:
