At work they are currently big on trying to get people to use BT Mydonate instead of Just Giving as the commission is much lower (MyDonate is commission free, just 13p/15p per card transaction, Just Giving is approx. 6% I think)

https://mydonate.bt.com/charity/search.html

Could end up with 5K+ extra being given to the charity, sounds good to me, well if I have read it right.

Must be worth looking into.

Cheers

is the BT my donate on line or is it a text giving service?

If it's via text then Vodafone justtextgiving is better as 100% of donations goes to the charity, Vodafone basically cover all the costs of the service as part of their charity foundation. But  it's only via text and not on line although it can be tied to a just giving page for any donators who don't want to use a text service, albeit with the normal just giving charges for on line.

Online, seems  to be just like JustGiving, but less overheads.

Any system involving only texts is going to be restrictive.

For example while I do text I don't often bother and there are people who won't do it at all, and use their mobile only for voice calls preferring to use the internet for 'written' things.

What ever system is chosen must be one which makes it easy for the greatest number of people or else we will not get them donating.

Facebook recently launched its fund raising tool, I don't know how it works but could be worth a look: https://www.facebook.com/fundraisers/

Just to ask, is it a mandatory to use to common platform or each team can collect money by its own?

Think of Tim and the other poor organisers who would have to keep track on all this and bring it into one unified amount of money collected.

No just use one platform

That's fine for me, I just thought that each team was responsible of its own raising and only at the end of the "campaign" gave the whole amount to the RBRR team.

I am about to discuss this with ER UK.

I am not sure which platform they want to use, I suspect JG. As they will have to manage, it is very much up to them.

As soon as I have the info, I will forward to all Entrants to enable them all to start their page.

Expect an email from me early next year.



Club Triumph Round Britain Reliability Run (Part of the organising team, what a team)!
RBRR is the best car event in the UK, not probably, it is!

1970 GT6 Mk.2: Royal Blue 6 RBRRs (98, 00,02,04,06 & 10), 2 10CRs (03 & 07). 2 HCRs 1 LCC, lots of Autosolos and numerous track days. Bought in 1983, crikey where did the time go! Now running the Roy Lacey cooling system!

1969 2.5Pi Mk.1: Slate Grey 3 10CRs (05,09 & 15), 3 RBRRs (08, 12 & 16), 3 HCRs, 2 LCCs. A few alloy panels, does need the pi kit fitting. Bought April '04. Needs paint! Just fitted some new 7J Minilites-not copies!

1967 Spitfire mk2: Wedgewood Blue. Bought November 2010. Almost seems civilised. Car has done a RBRR (Dave Picton 2010). Blimey, could be on the road soon!

I suspect BT might be doing it to ease a conscience and probably provide a tax break. If it benefits us, who is going to complain.

Looks to be just like JG so perhaps will be ok.

You would hope that an extra 5k might sway them over taking the normal  solution.

As far as I recall, each team can have their own page and it should link back to the Charity?

At least, the Rescue Boat I am a member off regularly has people fundraise for them, and by naming the boat (we are an independent charity) it links to us.
