Smile.Amazon – donate to Shopmobility while you shop

If you use Amazon you can now get exactly the same shopping experience and access your account through Smile Amazon BUT a percentage of the profits will be donated to High Wycombe Shopmobility! Login via this link using your usual account email/ password, select us as the cause that you would like to support and this will be saved for future purchases. We will then receive a donation whenever you buy any eligible products.

This only works using the “Smile” Amazon page not the normal homepage but all of your account details remain exactly the same and remain private. We are really grateful for any donations to help support our small, friendly charity. Thank you
