Whether you use eBay for buying or selling, eBay for Charity is an easy way to support us.
If you wish to sell unwanted items on eBay, you can choose to donate a percentage of your profits to Parkinson’s Care and Support UK. Simply select the ‘advanced sell’ option when uploading your products, and choose Parkinson’s Care and Support UK as the charity to receive between 10% and 100% of your proceeds. It’s that easy!
If you’re a UK taxpayer, Gift Aid is automatically added to the amount you donate. For every £1 you give Parkinson’s Care and Support UK, we’ll get an extra 25p from HM Revenue and Customs.
You can also support us by purchasing items that are being sold in aid of Parkinson’s Care and Support UK. Our eBay for Charity page lists all of these items in one convenient place, shopping has never been easier!
