Do you shop using  If you do, then you, or any of your friends and family, could be using & earning money for the choir.  It doesn’t cost you a penny and is effectively the Amazon website, but a small percentage of what you pay will come to the choir (as long as you select Beverley Male Voice Choir as your donation charity. Registered Charity Number 1193478).
