Internet shopping is very easy and very safe if you use reliable and trusted shops. We've tried dozens and have only come unstuck once. Here are some of our personal recommendations :-

In Association with
Between Nov 1 and Dec 31 each year, 5% of everything you spend shopping at Amazon from here goes to the Salvation Army to help the less fortunate in the New Year.


A superior alternative to Microsoft Office®

If you want a better all-in-one office product (word processor, spreadsheet, presentations etc) that does what you want when you ask it to and that doesn't have annoying little bent paperclips treating you like an idiot, take a look at WordPerfect Office.
