Health Food and More is a family run business with close links to the local and wider community. Over the years we have undertaken many fundraising initiatives supporting charities such as Help for Heroes and the SSPCA. In 2020 we launched our first e commerce platform and true to Health food and More principles we looked at a potential to do essential fundraising through our business activities. From this initial seed the idea of school fundraising was born and the software to facilitate this was incorporated into the site to enable a quick and easy way for schools to connect with us and fundraise with the minimum of effort. 2020 being the year of the Covid pandemic means that many traditional fundraising activities will be mothballed because of social distancing so it's particularly timely for us to bring our fundraising activities on board and support schools in raising vital funds. Typically schools use funds to equalise opportunities for all pupils, to reduce the impact of poverty on the school day and to enable young people the opportunity to enjoy a broad range of activities to enhance their educational journey. A worthwhile cause that we feel sits well with our ethos of healthy living that should embrace physical, emotional and spiritual well-being.
Health food and More School Fundraising is straightforward, takes no extra steps beyond shopping on our website and gives a cash back payment of 5% to schools participating in the programme. Its simple for both schools and customers to use. The school simply needs to register with us and we will add them to our drop down menu at the checkout on our website. At the checkout the shopper needs to click on the school they wish to support and we will allocate 5% of the sale to the chosen school and will make arrangements to transfer funds to the school at the end of each term.
We are excited at the potential this brings to schools to fundraise safely and effectively, with the minimum of effort, whilst encouraging healthy lifestyle choices. The website can be used for both click and collect as well as national mail order and although in the initial stages we plan to introduce this to schools in the Fife area our intention is to offer this nationally and welcome inquiries from any UK based schools who wish to join up with our project.
School application forms can be requested from us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We very much look forward to working with schools and hearing of positive stories from their fundraising efforts.
