Do you buy things from Amazon?
Amazon will give a small percentage of your purchase (at no cost to you) to New Forest Basics Bank if you sign on to “Smile Amazon” instead of Amazon.
Furthermore, once you have signed on, if you forget, they will give you a reminder immediately.
To set this up, all you need do is to click on www.smile.amazon.co.uk. It will ask you which charity you wish to support, to which you choose ‘new forest basics bank’ by typing ‘New Forest..’ clicking ‘Search’ and selecting it from their list.
That’s all you need do.
When you next sign on it is a good idea to make the site a ‘favourite’ and name it “Amazon Smile” and delete the favourite “Amazon” if you already have that.
