I am very grateful to Monica Compton who, on behalf of the PCC, has registered All Saints Oakham for Amazon Smile fundraising. As of November 2020 AmazonSmile has donated £5.7 million to UK charities. The PCC is aware that not all will approve of using Amazon. In our recent discussions we noted the need to use the local High Street shops as much as possible and to monitor Amazon’s ethical and financial policies over the next year. Monica has provided the information below for those interested. Stephen
