Support us for free when you shop online at over 4,200 stores.

Give as you Live is a free and easy way to raise money for The Somerville Foundation, just by shopping online.

You don’t pay anything extra for your shopping, so the donation is made at no extra cost to you.
The donation amount varies from store to store. Most of the time you raise a percentage of what you spend – between 1% and 10% – while sometimes it’s a fixed amount.

Regardless of the amount, 100% of the donation will reach the Somerville Foundation. So this money helps us to continue our good work and support adult CHD patients.

However you choose to show your support to the Somerville Foundation, we thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

With your help, we’ve helped fund new and improved treatments for congenital heart disease. we opened the UK’s first dedicated Congenital Heart Research Centre. we’ve organised receptions at the House of Lords and House of Commons, a film première, concerts, parachute jumps, marathon runs, annual sponsored walks and masquerade balls. we ensure that adult CHD patients enjoy access to every opportunity, are free from discrimination, and are fully supported throughout their lives. we’ve staged annual conferences, regional patient information days and workshops throughout the UK. we’ve published a range of leaflets for CHD patients on a wide-range of topics. we’ve launched a Freephone patient helpline to provide practical advice, a listening ear, and emotional reassurance at times of stress. we’ve created online networks where congenital heart patients can connect with each other. we successfully applied for a Comic Relief grant to help develop mental health support services. we’ve contributed to adult congenital heart disease nurse training days and taken part in various study days and conferences for medical and health professionals. we’ve established a benevolent fund for members who are in financial hardship. we’ve organised residential weekends and outward bound holidays for teenagers and adults, providing congenital heart patients with the opportunity to meet and gain support from each other.

Just think what else we could do if you donate, fundraise or volunteer for us.
