Simple Fundraising with Amazon Smile
Linking Amazon Smile to FODS
FODS is registered with AmazonSmile (see details for getting started below), so all you have to do is select us as your charity and then do your usual shopping at https://smile.amazon.co.uk/ (rather than the standard Amazon web address). 0.5% of the money you spend on AmazonSmile will be anonymously donated by Amazon to FODS!
And, if you sign up soon and send us (at firstname.lastname@example.org) a screenshot for confirmation, we'll enter your name into a prize draw for a £25 Amazon gift voucher! You need to send us your screenshot by July 5th 2019 to be in with a chance to win.
You don't have to be associated with Dringhouses Primary School to add FODS as your charity of choice or to enter the prize draw, so please let all your friends and family know about this opportunity!

You can help raise money for the school simply by shopping at Amazon! AmazonSmile is a website operated by Amazon with the same products, prices and shopping features as Amazon.co.uk. The difference is that when you shop on AmazonSmile, Amazon will donate 0.5% of the net purchase price (excluding VAT, returns and shipping fees) from your eligible AmazonSmile purchases.
The only difference to you as a consumer is the website address, smile.amazon.co.uk

Look out for the new recycling boxes in the office! FODS, the school Eco Warriors and Terracycle are all working together and we are now able to recycle:
- Crisp packets – any brand
- Pringles tubes (including the lid and seal)
- Contact lenses and packaging
- Toothpaste tubes, toothbrushes, electric toothbrush heads and all packaging linked to these items.
Please bring in all your items to be recycled into school - the more we collect the more money we raise for school and, most importantly, the more waste we save from going to landfill.
