Announcement – John Healey, Treasurer

New Milton Men’s Shed, is now registered with AmazonSmile which means that anyone (members and others) ordering items from AmazonSmile can nominate the ‘shed’ to receive Amazon’s charitable donation for that order.

What is AmazonSmile?

AmazonSmile is a website operated by Amazon that lets customers enjoy the same wide selection of products, low prices, and convenient shopping features as on amazon.co.uk. The difference is that when customers shop through the URL smile.amazon.co.uk, Amazon will donate 0.5% of the net purchase price (excluding VAT, returns and shipping fees) of eligible purchases to the charitable organisations selected by customers.

There is no cost to charitable organisations or to AmazonSmile customers. The shopping experience is identical to amazon.co.uk with the added benefit that Amazon will donate to the charitable organisations selected by customers.

How does AmazonSmile work?

In order to browse or shop through AmazonSmile, customers must first select a charitable organisation. Once they have chosen their charity they can shop the site as they normally would. Amazon will donate 0.5% of the net purchase price (excluding VAT, returns and shipping fees) of the customer’s eligible purchases. Only purchases made through smile.amazon.co.uk are eligible to generate donations.

  1. Sign in to AmazonSmile using your usual username/password.

  2. Select category Wefare and search for men’s shed and select the entry for New Milton Men’S Shed

  3. Follow the on-screen instructions to order goods/services in the normal way.

Visit from Hampshire County Council members.

From the start New Milton's Men's Shed has received outstanding support from Hampshire County Council with help in setting things up and the provision of a 'shed'. Shed members were therefore delighted to welcome members of the Council to their shed at Fernhill Sports Ground on 18th February 2020 to show them the progress made in kitting out the shed and some of the work completed and in progress for the local community.

Thank you Hampshire C.C. and your Men’s Activity Network (M.A.N.).
