There were many people shopping last week, at a variety of different Give as you Live stores. But a select few shoppers raised considerable donations for their favourite causes.

Buying a laptop online, taking out a new mobile phone contract, renewing your insurance… All of these things, when done online, can make a difference to charity.

Here are our top 5 donations this week

1. £25.30 raised for Compassion in World Farming at Dell.
A donation of just £25 helps Compassion influence those in power to prevent animal cruelty and change attitudes to farming and food production.

2. £25 raised for RNLI at O2 Shop
The RNLI is an independent charity, funded by voluntary donations and they provide 24-hour lifeboats and seasonal lifeguards dedicated to saving lives at sea. Just £16 donated to the RNLI pays for a pair of hard wearing, waterproof gloves that are vital safety equipment – so keep on shopping.

3. £24 raised for Children with Cancer at TalkTalk.
