How to raise money for ClementJames – every time you shop online!

eflogo

How it works:

  • Every time you shop online the retailer donates a percentage to The ClementJames Centre, at no extra cost to you.
  • Over 2000 retailers (inc. Amazon, Sainsbury’s, John Lewis, M&S, eBay) are registered

How you do it:

  1. Go to http://www.easyfundraising.org.uk/causes/clementjames/
  2. Follow the instructions to register
  3. Install the Find and Remind toolbar – this will let you know when you are on a website which is registered with EasyFundraising and ask if you would like to claim a donation to ClementJames (this just means that a percentage of your purchase will go to the charity).
  4. If you are a UK taxpayer, you can also claim Gift Aid on EasyFundraising. To do so once you have set up an account, please go to ‘Settings’ under the ‘Your account’ tab on the top right-hand corner, then tick the Gift Aid box and enter your address.

That’s it, easy peasy!  If you have any questions please do get in touch with us.

Thank you!

Bags of Help for ClementJames

Shayma and Nadima small

In partnership with the Parish of St Clement & St James The ClementJames Centre is looking to redevelop the small St Clement’s church garden along Sirdar Road to create a new community space for gardening and art projects, as well as general enjoyment. We are very pleased to announce that we have been selected as one of three organisations to participate in the ‘Tesco Bags of Help’ scheme throughout this February.
Between the 1st and 25th February, each time you shop in the stores below (spending any value) you will receive a token to vote for our project, which you can put into a box in store. The first prize is £5,000, the second is £2,500 and the third is £1,000.
We’re very grateful for any contribution towards the vote and thank you for your support!

The scheme sees three community groups and projects in each of around 200 Tesco regions awarded grants of £5,000, £2,000 and £1,000 – all raised from the 5p bag charge. The public will now vote in store from 1st to 25th February on who should receive the £5,000, £2,000 and £1,000 awards.

ClementJames celebrates the Notting Hill Carnival

Last week, we went on the road to celebrate Notting Hill Carnival with our colourful float and a group of very excited local children and families. The event was preceded by three weeks of Summer Carnival Arts at our centre, where children learned all about this year’s theme ‘Under the Sea’, created their own costumes together with our brilliant Carnival Artist Glow, learned a song and dance and went on fun trips to the London Aquarium and the Science Museum.
