Making a difference in an alternative way

Other Ways to Give

There’s lots of ways to fundraise to support the work of Communicare in Southampton. The fundraising on this page will not cost you a penny!

Have a look through the options below and explore the various ways that you can give and make a big difference. Thank you!


Have you recently upgraded your phone and you’re wondering what should I do with my old one?
Or perhaps you’ve got a collection of old phones for those ‘just in case’ situations?
Maybe you’ve got an old tablet that is sat in a drawer collecting dust?

Envirofone is an online site in which you can sell your old phone or your old tablet and choose to give the funds to Communicare.

You make the choice on the percentage of the sale that comes to Communicare? Will you donate 10%? 25%? 50%? Or even 100% to Communicare?

Envirofone.com is a quick and easy website to use. This is an environmentally friendly way to donate your old phone and raise some much needed funds for Communicare.  

To begin the process of donating your old phone or tablet, please click on the button below.

Give a Car (or any vehicle)

Do you have an old car, motorbike, van or even a caravan that you no longer want?

Maybe you have a vehicle that is only fit for scrap?

Giveacar is a not-for-profit social enterprise that can turn your old vehicle into cash for Communicare in Southampton.

Giveacar will collect your vehicle from your home for free, they will then either sell your vehicle at auction or scrap it with the proceeds (minus their service fees) coming to Communicare to your charity.

This is a fantastic opportunity to get rid of an old vehicle and do some good at the same time!

To donate your vehicle please click the button below.

Amazon Smile

Are you an Amazon Prime member and you do most if not all your shopping regularly through Amazon?

Or perhaps you use Amazon on days such as Black Friday? Or to avoid the Christmas queues?

Or perhaps you just shop via Amazon on the odd occasion when you can’t find what you need elsewhere?

If you fit any of those categories and let’s face it most of us will, then we’re really pleased to share that if you sign up via smile.amazon.co.uk and choose Communicare in Southampton as your charity, then whenever you purchase your goods, you will at the same time be raising money for us! 

Amazon will donate 0.5% from each purchase to us.

Two Amazon Smile tips:

  1. Do you use Amazon via a computer? Please save smile.amazon.co.uk to your favourites bar on your computer. It makes it easier to access and will help you avoid going to amazon.co.uk which would mean no donation for us.
  2. Do you use Amazon via a phone app? To sign up to Communicare in Southampton, this has to be done via the website as it cannot be done on the app. However once signed up, please go on the app, then click on the settings and then tap on ‘AmazonSmile’ and follow the on-screen instructions to turn on Amazon Smile on your phone.

Could you make a Lotto Difference for Communicare?

SO:Lotto has been created to support Southampton people and communities. We and a host of other Southampton charities have therefore joined SO:Lotto as an alternative way to raise money for our charities. 

It is a fun, easy way you can support us from just £1 a week. There is even the chance to WIN prizes up to the £25,000 jackpot!

50p of every ticket you buy will go to Communicare! Another 10p will go to a central fund to help good causes in Southampton, with the remaining 40p going towards the prizes, running costs and VAT. 

To purchase your tickets please click on the button below and please remember to choose Communicare as your chosen charity.
