Hope you've all had an enjoyable summer. The wait is nearly over, winter hockey is almost here!

This is arranged by Stuart Boyling, In the last few years RHC has raised over £2000 for them, which is fantastic, but more is always needed.

P.S. We are sending this to a lot of people, so as not to miss anybody who might want to know all of this. But our database is definitely in need of a clean-up. So if you received this and you don't want to receive more emails in the future, we apologise and we'd appreciate it if you let us know: Many thanks and sorry for the inconvenience.

Kind regards,

Romford Hockey Club

08 Feb 2017 : Easyfundraising raises FREE donations to the Club when you buy almost anything. See how it works:

Easyfundraising raises FREE donations to the Club when you buy almost anything. See how it works:

First register yourself using the link below. Then, when you spend money at any of hundreds of companies, the club will receive donations from those companies. Some small, some tiny, but they all add up.

Once you've registered, whenever you shop online, first go to the website and find the seller you want. Easyfundraising will then take you to that site and record anything you spend there. You do not have to do anything else.

An easier alternative is to download their Donation Reminder app to your browser(s). Then if you go directly to a website where donations are available, this app will tell you and let you activate the donation via a pop-up button. Perfect for those, like me, who keep forgetting to go to Easyfundraising first... There's a mobile app too.

Hundreds of vendors are signed up to this including all kinds of shops, ebay, travel companies, insurers, telecoms, utilities, pizzas, banks, cinemas, events... the list is huge. See for more.
