Personally I have generally been using select elements as I thought they
were more accessible for this kind of thing.

If you use the label element in your form like this:

  <label for="rad1">Online Shop</label>
  <input type="radio" name="radiobutton" id="rad1" value="radiobutton">
  <label for="rad2">RNIB</label>
  <input type="radio" name="radiobutton" id="rad2" value="radiobutton">

Then browsers such as mozilla allow clicking on the text of the label to
activate the radio button.
