Easy Fundraising!

Thank you for your interest in easyfundraising! I've been asked to supply details on how to join our cause because some people have experienced difficulty signing up to the scheme.

Please note that what we're kindly asking parents/families to do is to support/join our cause, not to register the preschool as a new cause. 

URC Preschool Harpenden is already registered as a cause and easyfundraising already has the preschool's bank account details so that we receive any donations you raise direct.

To support us, please follow these steps:

1. Go to: easyfundraising.org.uk/causes/urcharpendenpta - this will take you DIRECTLY to our existing cause page.

2. Look for the "join us" button and click

3. Create an account. Simply enter your details (name/email address/password of your choice/mobile number)

4. Click the 'create my account' button

That's it!

NB: you do NOT need to enter URC's bank account details, only follow the above steps to join us. Cause bank details are only required if you're registering a NEW fundraising cause.
