It is simple to raise money for the Ampleforth Lourdes Pilgrimage free, simply by shopping online through a website called

Whenever you buy anything online (e.g. books, groceries, clothing, train tickets, flights, hotel rooms, etc.) you can raise a free donation for Friends of Ampleforth Lourdes Sick (FOALS). There are over 2,700 retailers registered with the site, including Amazon, John Lewis, eBay and Tesco who will donate a percentage of what you spend to us.

Could you do this for us please?

If so, here's how:

1. Sign up – you only ever need to do this once. Go to and click on the button to sign up. Follow the instructions.

2. Shop – from the easyfundraising website, search for the retailer you’d like to shop with and click through to the retailer to make your purchase. Your computer tells the retailer you came from easyfundraising. The price is exactly the same as if you’d visited the retailer directly.

3. After your purchase, the retailer will give us a cash donation for Friends of Ampleforth Lourdes Sick (FOALS).

Please be assured that using the easyfundraising website will not cost you a penny. There are no catches or hidden charges and yet the Pilgrimage will benefit from any donations you make once registered.
