Charities are added to the list if a TopCashBack member makes a request, so that they can make a donation through TopCashBack. Alternatively some charities directly approach the website. However charities can only be listed if they are registered with the Charity Commission.
Providing the opportunity to donate to charity has proved successful. In the past 12 months alone, just over £10,000 has been donated*. Although people are looking to make savings on their shopping, they are not necessarily choosing to keep the financial benefits to themselves.
The number one beneficiary of this generosity is Cancer Research UK who have received donations from 620 TopCashBack members. In total, these members have donated just over £2,000. The next most popular charities on the Top Cashback website include: NSPCC, Water Aid, Disasters Emergencies and Help for Heroes. Top Cashback members have donated just under £5,300 to these charities
The reasons people give to charity can be many and varied; some have been personally affected by the work of a certain charity, others are moved by what a charity stands for and some simply have a soft spot for those less well off and in need of support.
Duncan Robb of Top Cashback commented: “It's good to see the spirit of goodwill is alive and well and that our members have such big hearts. The option to donate to charity is always available and even when times are tough and people are trying to find ways to save a few pounds on their shopping, they can still think of others.”
