Enjoy Halloween on a budget and support the Bat Conservation Trust for free through Savoo

Celebrate Halloween for less this year while giving free donations to the Bat Conservation Trust throughout October. Isabelle Grimshaw, brand expert at online money-saving platform Savoo, tells us her top brand recommendations for celebrating Halloween on a budget, as well as more information on how you can start donating for free every time you shop online.

Thanks to the dark evenings and, of course, Halloween, October is often seen as a spooky month. What with their largely nocturnal lifestyle, bats often get associated with this creepy time of year as creatures of the night. It won’t be long before you start seeing bat-inspired decorations around shops and houses.

In reality, bats are far from scary. In fact, they’re fascinating creatures who help us in plenty of great ways, such as keeping bugs away from crops and aiding the natural biodiversity of an environment. Far from the blood-sucking vampire bats of Dracula, bats are largely peaceful creatures, and their UK population feeds exclusively on insects - no bloodsuckers here!

These days we mostly enjoy Halloween by getting cosy in the evenings, throwing parties and taking the kids trick or treating, so there’s less fear and more fun. 

How can I support the Bat Conservation Trust through Savoo?
Bats are misunderstood and undervalued but Bat Conservation Trust is working to change that. Halloween can often perpetuate some of the misconceptions about bats but it is also an opportunity to celebrate how wonderful bats are and make more people aware of this. Throughout October, you can help support bats by using the free online fundraising and money-saving platform Savoo. Find fantastic voucher codes and deals for all your favourite shops to save on your Halloween shopping. Every time you use one of Savoo’s voucher codes, they’ll donate on your behalf to your chosen charity.

Here’s how to set Bat Conservation Trust as your charity:
  1. Create an account on Savoo
  2. Go to the Bat Conservation Trust’s charity page
  3. Click the ‘support this charity’ button
  4. That’s it! You’re now supporting the Bat Conservation Trust
  5. Watch your donations stack up every time you use a deal or voucher code
  6. Plus, donate a penny for free every time you make a search with Savoo’s fundraising search engine, powered by Bing.
Usually, Savoo donates half of their affiliate commission, but throughout October they’ll be giving double donations to Bats Conservation Trust to help protect bats and their environment. So go big this Halloween and throughout the Black Friday and Christmas sales season knowing that you’re donating to a cause which matters to you.
