Throughout the year, we go through a lot of different cat and dog food, both wet and dry. If you have a fussy cat or dog and constantly try new food which they don't like - please think of us and send in your unused food; our cute patients are not so fussy! One sachet of cat food will feed a baby hedgehog for a day so every little really does help. No donation is too small.

We also use a lot of other foods in the rescue, especially during "baby season" (Spring/Early Summer). Esbilac and Kaytee Exact are essential when hand-rearing newborn mammals and birds. We rely on these products daily as soon as the baby season begins. Goat food is the perfect feed for fawns who are beginning to wean and become independent ready for release. Food donations mean everything to us and are an essential part of running the rescue; please think of us next time you are on Amazon by looking on our wish list and helping all our wildlife!

Raise much needed funds for us at the rescue. One way you can help us is to organise your own fundraising events. This could be at school, work or at home with family and friends. We have enclosed a few things to help with your fundraising on our behalf. 

Keep Safe

If you are fundraising, then make sure you empty your collection box frequently and keep the money somewhere safe. Street collections are not encouraged and please only fundraise with people that you know. If your event does involve the public, make sure you check with your insurance company first. Most importantly – HAVE FUN!

Fundraising Ideas

Why not get your friends and family to sponsor you for:

  • Walk
  • Silence
  • Cycle Ride
  • Swim
  • 3-legged Walk
  • Doing Chores, e.g. washing up, tidying your room
  • Sponsored Car Wash
  • Get your friends to donate unwanted books, toys or you could all get together to make cakes and have a table top sale!
  • Why not charge friends to pet sit while they are on holiday or away for the day?
  • If you are very sporty you could enter a Fun Run or even the Marathon! Make sure you get lots of people to sponsor you
  • Hold a Bring and Buy Sale. You could even theme the sale (e.g. Children Books, Disney)
  • If you are artistic why not sell your skills as a face painter?
  • If you are good at making things, why not make and sell your creations?
  • How about holding a raffle?
  • Why not fill up a tube of Smarties with £1 coins (after you’ve eaten all the chocolate of course!)
  • Organise a school or group quiz. To help you along we’ve got some Harper Asprey questions (and answers) to get you started
  • Why not arrange a Treasure Hunt, you’d need to work out the clues. You could even make it seasonal if you wanted (Easter Egg Hunt or find the Santa).

Before fundraising make sure you read our fundraising guide and most importantly HAVE FUN!!! Each year we need to raise money for equipment, medical costs and food. Our food needs are complex as we need to seek the appropriate diet for a multitude of wildlife. We need specialist cages to accommodate them during their stay. Each year we treat more and more wildlife.

  • We give talks and ask for food donations and towels
  • We sell items in our shop
  • We attend shows, shopping centres and fairs to share our experiences and encourage people to understand the wildlife that surrounds them.

This is one of our fundraising stalls used  for Halloween with lots of 'batty' fun.

If you feel able to help us with any type of fundraising or have any ideas please don't hesitate to contact us. One sachet of cat food feeds a baby hedgehog for a day so every little really does help.  We are a small charity run totally by volunteers. We are a very busy rescue and we rely on the generosity of our sponsors and fundraising events. Every little helps. As we take in more and more sick and injured casualties, we need more specialists cages so that we can give each and every creature the type of environment they need to improve their stay. We are in the process of expanding our facility and there are always happy for individuals or companies to sponsor cages, aviaries, release sites and essential equipment.

You can help to secure the future of Harper Asprey Wildlife Rescue by remembering us in your will. 

Making a will can be difficult and worrying with assets to be allocated, to who and how. Writing your will gives you peace of mind and removes the burden to your family to take on this difficult task at their time of bereavement. A bequest to us need not affect your families financial stability. As a charity, all bequests are free from all liability for inheritance tax and can be used to bring the value of your estate below the tax threshold which can be of tremendous benefit for those left behind.

You can make a straight forward financial legacy or alternatively you can bequest property, shares or any other kind of gift. We fully appreciate the concern you have for those you leave behind, so you may wish to consider a "Reversionary Legacy' where you leave money, your estate or a percentage of it to the rescue but only after the death of your spouse, partner or relative. This means they can enjoy your assets during their lifetime but afterwards, the designated portion reverts to us. We recommend that you consult a solicitor to arrange the wording.

It is advisable to ask a Solicitor to draught your Will. After you have made provision for your loved ones you may want to give to charity. If you are planning to make a bequest to "Harper Asprey Wildlife Rescue" we have some advice that will help ensure your gift makes a real difference to wildlife. 

WORDING YOUR BEQUEST

If you have decided to remember "Harper Asprey Wildlife Rescue" in your Will there are two ways of making a bequest. One is to leave an amount of money. We naturally appreciate this but would ask you to include the words "index-linked" that protects your gift from inflation. A generous sum now could have significantly less actual value in twenty years or when the gift is released. 

There are three main types of legacy you can leave. The following wording that should be included as part of your will makes your intentions clear.

Residual Gift: This is all or a part of the value of your estate once all other legacies and expenses have been paid. The will should read -

"I give a _______ % share of the residue of my estate to not hereby or by any Codicil hereto otherwise disposed of subject to payment of my funeral and testamentary to "Harper Asprey Wildlife Rescue" Registered Charity Number 1143603 of Marlborough House, Augustus Gardens, Camberley, Surrey GU15 1HL for the general purposes of "Harper Asprey Wildlife Rescue" and I direct that the receipt of the person who professes to be the Hon Treasurer or another proper officer of "Harper Asprey Wildlife Rescue" for the time being shall be a sufficient discharge for the same.” 

Pecuniary Gift:  This is a gift of a specific sum of money.

"I give the sum of _______ pounds, index linked and free of duty to "Harper Asprey Wildlife Rescue," Registered Charity Number: 1143603 of Marlborough House, Augustus Gardens, Camberley, Surrey GU15 1HL for the general purpose of "Harper Asprey Wildlife Rescue" and I direct that the receipt of the person who professes to be the Hon Treasurer or another proper officer of "Harper Asprey Wildlife Rescue" for the time being shall be a sufficient discharge for the same. 

Specific Gift:  This is an item of value, such as a home.

"I give (name item) not hereby or by any Codicil hereto otherwise disposed of subject to payment of my funeral and testamentary to "Harper Asprey Wildlife Rescue" Registered Charity Number: 1143603 of Marlborough House, Augustus Gardens Camberley Surrey GU15 1HL for the general purposes of "Harper Asprey Wildlife Rescue" and I direct that the receipt of the person who professes to be the Hon Treasurer or another proper officer of "Harper Asprey Wildlife Rescue" for the time being shall be a sufficient discharge for the same.”

If you have already made a will but wish to make an alteration or leave an additional legacy to "Harper Asprey Wildlife Rescue" you can do this by making a short supplementary will, called a Codicil. It is important that a solicitor helps you with this to ensure compliance with legal formalities.

If you do decide to leave a gift to the "Harper Asprey Wildlife Rescue" or have already included us in your will, we would be very grateful if you could inform us of your intentions in full confidence by writing to our founder and CEO Anne Brummer at our registered address. Please mark your letter Legacy Private and Confidential. If you would like any further information on leaving a gift to "Harper Asprey Wildlife Rescue" in your will, please contact us by email - This email address is being protected from spambots.
