Amazon Smile

The Association is always look at new ways to help fundraise and seek out different opportunities (through grants etc), to provide new equipment, educational resources and to assist with the general maintain and up keep at the two apiary sites.

Recently, the Association was able to purchase a new large marquee, for use at the Shugborough Apiary. The marque is a great edition, which means we can host the honeybee experience days, beginners course, and various socials and subgroup meetings, whatever the weather.

In additional the Association has registered with AmazonSmile, which is a website operated by Amazon. It has the same selection of products as on but when you shop through, Amazon will donate 0.5% of the net purchase price of eligible purchases to the Association.

It’s a really easy way for the association to receive funds and we would very much appreciate if you could register using the following link:

You only have to do register once to set up the Association as your Charity of choice and then you can shop on the site as you would normally. There is no cost to the Association or any additional cost to AmazonSmile customers. So, happy shopping!

If you have any fundraising ideas that you would like to share or you know of any grants that we could apply for please do not hesitate to get in touch by email –

Here is what our new marquee looks like.
