Facebay Fundraising

In the past few weeks the members of the group have been very active buying selling and donating items In the past 3 months we have donated £1135.60 to Down Syndrome Scotland, £1676 To Alzheimer Scotland And £1500 to Yorkhill Hospital play fund.

This is an amazing Effort from every member


The group is going from strength to strength with over 1300 members and are now sponsored by the local company in clark street who have donated several storage units to store the constant donations we get

We are also looking for volunteers who can drive and can pick up items that are donated

Find out more by visiting the Facebay Fundraising page by clicking on the following link.

Facebay Fundraising was setup April 2012 after visiting local charity shops and seeing how inflated prices could be in high street charity shops

We had previously setup a facebay group to give away unwanted items and realised that we could also help charities while helping people that did not have a lot of money so Facebay Fundraising was born

How the group works

People donate their unwanted items to the Admins or workers of the site

The admins of the site then list the unwanted items, stating how much each item is.

If you have donated items to us, you may specify a charity you wish the money to go to, otherwise we will allocate the money to the charities.

People can advertise their items on the page and pay the proceeds from any sale via the justgiving links but the preferred method at the moment is to drop the money off to one of the admin

As the group expands to cover the whole of Scotland we will have to rely on peoples honesty in paying the money through justgiving

The charities we support are

Macmillan Cancer Support

MND Scotland

PDSA Scotland

Alzheimer Scotland

Yorkhill Children’s Hospital

Down’s syndrome Scotland

The RAH Kids Ward does not have a Just Giving page, however at Christmas we organise a present drop of toys and gifts.

In the past year we have raised over £9000 for the charities on our group by selling unwanted items we have had great support from the community and local businesses and groups including

Storage Vault

St Mirren FC

Apollo Music

We have also arranged various events including boot fairs, jumble sales, Psychic nights , Sponsored walks and cycle rides

We have 1380 members on the facebay group and our aim is to expand from being a mainly local paisley and surrounding area group to a group that covers the whole of Scotland

We believe that the group is the first of its kind and it is a unique way of supporting charities


Facebay Fundraising

Facebay Fundraising has raised £290 for the RAH Children’s Ward from their Facebook page.

People donated their unwanted items to the site and the money raised was spent on presents for the sick children in the Paisley R.A.H Children’s Ward, the staff on the ward were delighted with the presents. This is all thanks to their supporters who donate unwanted items to the Facebay Fundraising website.

There are five charities in the group which are Macmillan Cancer Support, Alzheimer Scotland, R.A.H Children’s Ward, PDSA and MND (Motor Neurone Disease). People donate their unwanted items to the site and choose which charity they want the money to go to. They are then given links on the site to pay into.

So far we have raised over £3,000 for Macmillan Cancer Support, please feel free to have a look at the items on the site. Everyone is welcome to join the site, all donations welcome. We are also selling raffle tickets for a hamper at £1 a strip which can be purchase from Irene McDonald from Facebay Fundraising, proceeds raised from the raffle will be donated to the PSDA Glasgow. If anyone would like to donate an item for the hamper, it would very much be appreciated. Irene can be contacted on or
