Teresa supports new shopping website set to benefit local hospices and charities

Teresa showed her support at a Westminster event this week for Care2Save, the newly-launched shopping site that will help raise funds for charities across Erith & Thamesmead when people shop online.

Online spending over Christmas is predicted to reach an all-time high of £13bn. If just 5 per cent of purchases are made through Care2Save, £19.5m could be raised for good causes this festive season.

The event enabled MPs to learn how Care2Save provides a new income stream for hospices and charities in the UK.

Donna Air – actress, designer and supporter of Care2Save – was also at the event, having recently revealed that her grandfather is suffering from dementia and is being cared for in a hospice.

Care2Save is unique in the UK, as it is the only charity owned and run shopping website that gives 100% of the money that it makes through commission directly to the charity sector.

Teresa said:

“It was great to attend the Care2Save event and to find out more about hospice care in my constituency. Hospices play a vital role in helping people who are terminally or seriously ill, and most of us will be touched by hospice care at some point during our lives.


I am delighted to support Care2Save and can’t believe how easy it makes it to raise funds for our local hospices – and, in fact, for all local charities this Christmas.”
