Did you know each easyfundraising supporter can raise up to £45 for your Shed when they use the free website to compare & switch their insurance and utilities? Each switch raises £15 so if they switch car & home insurance with Go Compare plus their utilities with uSwitch, they’ll raise £45 and save money on their bills too! Multiply that by the number of people in your Shed community to see how much you could raise! If your Shed isn’t using easyfundraising yet register here http://efraising.org/brhX5yJOsYE
In case you missed the easyfundraising session at last weeks ShedFest, don’t forget you can register your Shed and start raising free money too. As mentioned in the session easyfundraising is an online shopping website that fits in very well with other fundraising activities and will run along in the background with very little effort required. Dalbeattie Shed have raised nearly £200! Just let your Shedders and other supporters in the community know that they can support you when they shop online without it costing them a penny!

Lockdown provided a real challenge to our preparations for ShedFest this year and we had to ask:
Could we host it? What would it look like? What would work? What do people want to know and how do we keep it interesting for everyone?
Thanks to the support of the Trustees, Staff, Ambassadors, Shedders and many of our partners we were able to provide a balanced programme, hopefully with something for everyone. In actual fact our audience went much further than we originally anticipated including New Zealand, Australia, Canada, Ireland, Germany and the US including the British Isles. We’ve had several contacts since with people wanting to engage more and share our work.
