Amazon are now making donations when you Smile at us!

Did you know, if you’re shopping online with Amazon, some of what you pay could be donated to Pett Level Independent Rescue Boat?

The process is easy to set up and, once you’ve completed the set up phase, 0.5% of the net purchase price (excluding shipping fees, VAT and returns) of eligible products will be donated to us.
