Our top purchases: Switch your shopping from offline to online this month


Last week, our shoppers had the ‘holiday buzz’ and were booking breaks away left, right and centre, raising funds for their chosen charities at the same time. This week, we’ve had a look at where you love to shop the most, and top of the list is John Lewis.

Three of our top purchases this week were made at John Lewis, with over £85.33 raised for a selection of three different charities. Other than that, people raised the most money through shopping for hotel bookings, breakdown cover, Sky TV, and electricals (as well as even more holidays!)

Here are the top five donations, the charities benefiting and what stores were shopped at:

1. £54.38 raised for World Society for the protection of Animals at John Lewis
2. £65.88 raised for Cancer Research UK at Explore
3. £59.91 raised for Stable Family Home Trust at Virgin Atlantic
4. £40.00 raised for RSPB at Sky Digital
5. £35 raised for HCPT – The Pilgrimage Trust at the AA breakdown cover
