Yorkshire Dales on e-Bay

[Friday 13 October 2006]

ONE of the Yorkshire Dales' leading charities is hoping to raise money to preserve the timeless heritage of Dales life by linking up with eBay.

The Yorkshire Dales Millennium Trust has teamed up with the Charities Aid Foundation and 'eBay for Charity', the charity programme on eBay.co.uk, as part of the Give it up for Charity Challenge.

The challenge will run throughout October as part of National Giving Week, the annual campaign to increase the overall level of charitable giving.

The event is free and simple. All you need to do is to sell items on eBay.co.uk in October and donate between 10% and 100% to the Yorkshire Dales Millennium Trust. The Trust will automatically receive the donations, along with Gift Aid (where possible) and eBay fees. In addition, during the challenge, charities that raise the most (relative to size) could benefit from special awards.

Anything put up for sale for charity not only appears on the eBay worldwide marketplace in front of more than 200 million users, but are also highlighted with a distinctive blue and yellow ribbon, making them easy for people to find.

David Baker, the trust's fundraising manager commented: "Everyone has one or more things lying around which we hope they won't mind giving up and selling. This in turn will benefit the work YDMT does throughout the Dales."
