Easy Fundraising - Supporting the OR Scholarship Fund

Did you know you can help raise money for the Old Roedeanians' Scholarship Fund by shopping online and at no additional expense to you?

The Old Roedeanians’ Scholarship Fund (ORSF) has been making awards since 1928. Supported by the Old Roedeanians’ Association, today the Trustees make means tested awards to girls studying at the school to enable them to continue their education into the 6th form.

Thanks to the generosity of ORs, in the last couple of years the Trustees have been able to increase the amount and frequency of awards. However, to be able to continue at this level, we need to raise an additional £5,000 by the end of March 2022.

The Trustees have registered the Old Roedeanians’ Scholarship Fund with both Easyfundraising.org.uk and Amazon Smile.

Over 6,000 online retailers including John Lewis & Partners, Argos, Selfridges, Etsy, Uswitch, eBay, Just Eat and M&S, to name but a few, are ready to give a free donation every time you shop online.

Plus, once you’ve signed up and raised £15 in donations, easyfundraising will give the ORSF an extra £15 bonus donation.
