AMAZON SMILE

Amazon Smile is the charitable arm of Amazon - it offers the same great range of products at exactly the same prices!

If you order via Amazon Smile and select WDC as your chosen charity, Amazon Smile will make a donation to us for every purchase you make - and it won't cost you a penny more! Definitely worth smiling about as you shop at  smile.amazon.co.uk

CASH FOR CARS

Turn your old wheels into a cash for whales!

Both Charity Car and GiveaCar will arrange for your old banger to be collected free of charge from any accessible location and then donate the scrap metal value to WDC or, if appropriate, auction the car and then donate the sale price to WDC.    Vans, motorcycles and lorries can also be donated.

For more information, contact Charity Car on 0844 669 6889 or info@CarTakeBack.com or call GiveaCar on 0207 736 4242

ECOTRICITY

Ecotricity is unique – income from your electricity and gas bills is used to build new sources of renewable energy, such as windmills, helping to protect the environment as well as donating up to £60 for WDC each time a new customer signs up or switches.

Andy Parker, Partnerships Account Manager, said: “We’ve been proudly supporting WDC for almost a decade now, and our sign-up incentive is one of the most successful ways we’ve been able to do that. It’s simple – we’ll donate up to £60 to WDC when you switch to Ecotricity. The more people who join us, the more green energy we can build in Britain, whilst also supporting WDC and the great work they do."

Call 08000 302 302 or visit www.ecotricity.co.uk/WDC and remember to quote WDC1 when you switch or sign up.

And if supporting WDC isn’t enough, here are 3 more reasons to join Ecotricity:

1. Britain's greenest energy company: Ecotricity does everything it can to minimise its carbon footprint, from the 100% green electricity and frack-free green gas it supplies, to the running of the company’s offices.

2. Best customer service: No automated call waiting, just friendly people who pick up the phone.

3. Ethical pricing: All Ecotricity customers are always on the latest best price, no matter when they joined and regardless of how they pay. What’s more, there are no exit fees or penalties either.

Why Triodos?

Triodos Bank is different.  Clients’ money is only lent to organisations and individuals that make the world a better place: for example, community projects, organic farms, renewable energy schemes and nature conservation projects. Triodos publishes details of every single organisation it lends to on the website, so you can see exactly where your money goes.
