We are pretty sure everyone reading this at least occasionally buys things and searches for things on the internet, well now you can help fund Stop HS2 by just searching on the internet or buying the same stuff online from the same places at the same prices you always have. The promised standing order form is also on this page!
Stop HS2 have teamed up with easy fundraising to make it easy for you to raise money for Stop HS2. First off there is the Stop HS2 easysearch web page at http://stophs2.easysearch.org.uk/. Every time you search the web with the easysearch page registered to Stop HS2 instead of Google, Yahoo or whoever, you’ll raise funds for Stop HS2. It works out about half a penny a go, but that could easily work out at about £20 per year just from YOU, effectively by doing next to nothing. You can even add easy search onto the search bar in your browser window by clicking http://stophs2.easysearch.org.uk/faq/# Please try it out!
