Published:  18 January, 2007

It is now possible to raise funds for The Wine & Spirit Trades' Benevolent Society (The Benevolent) simply by using its website.
The Benevolent has teamed up with ClickNow to provide a web-search facility that will benefit those who have worked in the drinks industry and need help.
When you search using The Benevolent search page, you receive results from leading search engines and help raise funds at the same time. By using The Benevolent search page - - everyday, you could raise up to 50 a year.
Mike Campbell, chief executive of The Benevolent, said: The Benevolent web search works in the same way as any other search engine. The only difference is that, every time you do your normal search, The Benevolent will receive a donation from ClickNow. So the more you search, the more money we receive - at no cost to you and no cost to The Benevolent. So what are you waiting for?

Remember to use the links on the page to bookmark this search engine, or make it your home page to ensure that every search helps your favourite charity.'

Campbell concluded: Please forward this information, and let your friends and family know, too. Every search helps.'

Declare your love on a bottle

For 89, WineShare will put a message on the label of one of the wines from its vineyards - Chteau Constantin-Chevalier in Provence, Domaine du Grand Mayne near Bordeaux, Chteau de Pizay in Beaujolais and Castello Vicchiomaggio in Tuscany.

Harpers took up the offer and got the above label back on a bottle of sparkling ros. It's a nice idea, but we weren't keen on the execution: the type is too small, so the message is a little lost on the label.

If you are interested, order by 6 February and WineShare guarantees delivery in time for Valentine's Day. To order online, log on to; alternatively, call 01306 742164.

Just send WineShare your personal declaration of love and they will print it on the wine label, or if you are stuck for words you can simply plump for Taste me!', In the event of intimacy, pop cork!' or even Marry me?'

You can also rent a row of vines from WineShare. You will receive a certificate of registration and an information pack about the vines and the wines they produce. All this along with your specially labelled bottle of sparkling ros wine - an irresistible offer.
