We are entirely self-funded, and dependent on successful funding bids, revenue we generate ourselves, and donations which are gratefully received. 

Generate library funds for free when online shopping, and maybe bag yourself a bargain at the same time!

Here is how to generate funds for the library at no cost to you, every time that you shop online.

Called "Give as you Live", online shoppers can raise funds every time that they purchase from a wide range of high street retail outlets. We hope that you will sign up to the scheme to contribute to the running costs of the library, and to help support the wide range of regular events and activities which take place there, as well as the special additional ones which we run from time to time.

To participate requires an initial registration process, after which you can arrange to donate every time you make an online purchase from a participating store (of which there are thousands in the UK). The procedure is as follows:

Initial Registration

[1] Copy and paste the following link into your browser:

Click on "Sign Up" at the top of the page which appears.

[2] Click on "Create your account" in the resulting form and complete the required fields,  including creating a password for your account (making a careful note of it and storing it somewhere safely). Note that the inclusion of personal details is optional, and you can also select contact preferences for receiving further information (or not).

[3] Click "Finish" 

This completes the once only registration procedure. The email address and password that you have created are the login credentials to your account.

Generating donations to SCCL via online shopping

Each time you are making an online purchase, please proceed as follows:

[1] Go to: (you are directed to a secure site so all your details are safe), and click on "Log in".

Sign into your account using your email address and the password that you have created. Search for the store you wish to shop at or the product you wish to buy. Note that, at this point, you have the option to compare prices on a particular product (via the "products" option) before selecting a store. (Note the "Browse Retailers" button if you do not immediately see the store that you wish to use).

[2] Select your store, and when the store details appear, click the  "Buy Now" or "Shop Now" button, and proceed with your purchase in the usual way. You will receive a confirmatory message that your visit has been tracked and that SCCL will be receiving its percentage of the sale. (the stores state what percentage or what cash value will be donated to the library).

[3] Once you have completed your purchase, you will receive a confirmatory email within 7 days detailing the amount raised for SCCL, and it won't have cost you any extra.

Depending on how you manage your account, you could download an App as detailed on the website, install a shopping bar, or place a shortcut on your computer desktop to: 

Then if you shop online at Amazon, John Lewis, Sainsbury's, M & S, Waitrose, Morrisons, or a host of other stores, you can access them all via the one login, while raising money for SCCL at the same time. Special offers also appear, so you might also save yourself money at the same time!

Thank you for your support; it is much appreciated!
