A NAILSEA sports group has launched a novel way of raising money.

Nailsea Cricket Club has created an online shop where members of the public can shop for products from well-known names including Marks and Spencer, HMV, Expedia,, Next, Waterstones and Littlewoods.

The website, which can be found at, is straightforward to use and no technical knowledge is needed.

Shoppers simply go to the site, where they can click on the logo of a brand, taking them to the website for that business.

From then on shopping online is just the same as if you had gone straight to the retailers' website.

Many retailers will provide exclusive offers to the webshop, such as free delivery, and for each purchase made the cricket club will receive a commission.

Cricket club member Adam Blower said: "The web shop facility is such a simple but effective idea.

"It does not cost the user a penny more, is completely secure and could make a big difference to Nailsea Cricket Club."

Another way of raising money for the club, which holds junior net sessions at Nailsea School and adult net sessions at The Downs School in Wraxall, is the social events held throughout the year.

The first for 2010 will be on January 22 at Grove Sports Centre in St Mary's Grove.

The Quiz and Chips evening starts at 7.30pm with fish and chips provided for an entry fee of £6.

Club members and non-members are welcome and quiz teams can be a maximum of six.
