Shop to Give
There are ways you can support Chesham Grammar School the whole year round just by doing your regular shopping and at no cost to you! Do read on …
The easiest way to support our fabulous school at no cost to you is via ShopSmart. This clever scheme means we can all generate donations, paid for simply by doing our food shopping.
How it Works:
Pick a monthly amount (min £10), choose your supermarket (Sainsburys, Waitrose, John Lewis (instore/online), or Tesco (instore only) and we’ll send you a gift card which is topped up each month (you just need to set up a standing order to CGS).
Pay £100 per month of your food shop on your Sainsbury’s ShopSmart card, this generates 4% commission (donated by Sainsbury’s to CGS), which is £48 per year and £336 over your child’s time at the school – all for FREE! Multiply by the many parents and staff, and this can bring in over £40,000 a year to enhance your child’s educational experience!
We have designed a speedy new google form – just click here and then set up the standing order via your banking app… all from the comfort of your sofa!
You’ll get a monthly email reminder when your card is topped up and you can increase, decrease, change or cancel at any time, giving you complete flexibility! You can also make one-off payments if you’re planning a larger purchase for your home or garden (e.g. John Lewis) and CGS will receive the commission from the purchase.
