'Easyfundraising' for the Club

New way to raise funds for the Club
Did you know that whenever you buy anything online – from your weekly shop to your annual holiday – you could be raising free donations for Golden Valley Dog Training Club with easyfundraising?

 There are over 4,000 shops and sites on board ready to make a donation – including eBay, Argos, John Lewis, ASOS, and M&S – and it won’t cost you a penny extra to help us raise funds.

 All you need to do is:

 1. Go to and join for free.

2. Every time you shop online, go to easyfundraising first to find the site you want and start shopping.

3. After you’ve checked out, the retailer will make a donation to Golden Valley Dog Training Club at no extra cost to you whatsoever!

 There are no catches or hidden charges and Golden Valley Dog Training Club will be really grateful for your donations.

 Thank you for your support.
