Working the cycles of Consumer Contempt

It’s our usual dank, dark, damp, close season, and this is not really an article with an awful lot to do with Cricket, but it is some food for thought, and an explanation as to how I raised almost £200.00 for our Club in the last 2 years – whilst saving money for myself – and without costing myself a penny! As you all ought to know by now – making online purchases via links on the Reed CC website can earn our Club substantive accumulations of sales commissions.

So the mechanism is very easy – IF you can be persuaded to register with Easyfundraising and nominate Reed [...]
