Who says household utilities are boring?


Find it a bore renewing your car insurance? What about changing your mobile phone, or broadband package? Next time a household utility chore comes up, turn that frown upside down and spend the money through Give as you Live! That way you’ll get the feel-good factor knowing you’ve made a donation to your favourite charity at no extra cost to yourself.

3. £23 raised for The Woodland Trust at John Lewis Insurance
4. £20 raised for ABF The Soldiers Charity at BT Total Broadband
5. £20 raised for Macmillan Cancer Support at First Utility
