Give as you Picnic

With this sudden burst of summer-like weather, everyone is flocking to parks in their flip-flops and sunglasses, embracing probably the only bit of sun we’ll see all year.

Last weekend I went for a picnic with some friends, I say picnic…we had some cheese sticks and a blanket, so this week I’m making sure I’m prepared for the predicted good weather this weekend. With the Give as you Live shopping App, you can give to charity at no cost to you or the charity whilst shopping online. There are over 1,200 stores to choose from, and I’m going to show you the best picnic goodies around.  Remember before you go shopping to get the Give As You Live™ App.

Strawberry Fool give up to 4% with the Give As You Live™ App and this weekend they have an excellent Picnic & Party Time Offer! They’ve  just taken delivery of their new picnic and party ranges for 2011. I love the bright, fresh colours and patterns combined with pretty bunting and traditional wicker- quintessentially English. If you subscribe to their newsletter, for this weekend only you can help yourself to 10% off! Simply sign up and enter PICNICTEN on the basket page. Offer expires midnight 27th March and usual terms of sale apply.
