"Freegle is in the running to win a competition being run by eBay to find their members' favourite charity.
You don't have to make a donation or buy or sell, you just have to click on a button and make Freegle a favourite charity in eBay and Freegle could win as much as £7000. Money that would help Freegle with its running costs. Remember Freegle is free to use, but not to run. Freegle survives on donations and opportunities like this.
Then just click on the "Save as favourite" button on the right hand side of the screen. There's loads of nice comments about Freegle there as well! There is a leader board at the following address where you can see how Freegle is doing.

If you're not already aware of Freegle, it is effectively a recycling noticeboard website where people post about items they no longer require and are looking to give away, or about items they would like to acquire. Everything is free and we used Freegle to get shot of lots of stuff when we sold our Polegate home. It's amazing what people will eagerly come and collect!
