As part of the Choose How U Move East Ren programme you can not only reward yourself or donate to many national charities already listed in the 'Redeem' or 'Donate' sections in the app, but did you know you can also use your BetterPoints to support local businesses and local charities too?
This page is dedicated to showcasing local charities that could benefit from your BetterPoints. Every 1,000 BetterPoints is worth £1. Donations form a huge part of what BetterPoints does and over the years our users have donated thousands of pounds , and as a business we encourage you to give what you can, when you can.
If the charity you want to support isn't featured in this story or via the app's 'Donate' section then please get in touch with us via the help section. One of our fantastic Customer Care Team will be able to assist you in getting them set up.
