Summer is almost over, and Vida are back to fundraising in support of our Eva Services for women and girls affected by abuse and trauma.

Here are 2 ways you and your contacts could help – at no cost to yourselves!

o   Tesco Bags of Help blue token vote in September & October – see below for participating stores

o   Amazon Smile charity giving – when making purchases and the Smile box comes up, just search for ‘Vida Sheffield’ or start your purchase from here: smile.vida and Amazon will donate 0.5% of eligible purchases, for as long as the scheme exists


Tesco Bags of Help details:

Exactly one year after applying, Vida have been selected for the months of September & October 2018

Of 3 charities, the one with the most votes will receive £4,000, the second £2,000, and the third £1,000.
