Many schools have charities for a year - so why not suggest us to your school? As a wildlife rescue, we deal daily with casualties that happen through a lack of understanding. We see fear and misunderstanding of the creatures that surround us. But actually, they all have very special roles and purposes. By sharing our experience with children and showing them some of the wildlife that surrounds them, we hope that in the future these would-be custodians of our planet will make good decisions and ensure our survival alongside our precious wildlife in a natural balance.
Here are just some of the fun ways you can help us:
Invite us to your school fete or Christmas fair
Why not get friends and family to sponsor you for ...... Walking, Silence, A Cycle Ride, Swimming, A 3-legged Walk, Doing Chores e.g. washing up, tidying your room or a Sponsored Car Wash?
Get your friends to donate unwanted books or 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 maybe get Mum and/or Dad to run a 10k or marathon! Make sure you get lots of people to sponsor you!
Hold a Bring and Buy Sale. You could "theme" the event - How about A Disney day?
Draw the outline of a wild animal (perhaps a fox or badger or rabbit?) and ask adults to give you coins that you can stick to the picture until it's full up!
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? Why not arrange a Treasure Hunt? - Don't forget to work out the clues!
You could even make it seasonal if you wanted (Easter Eggs - Secret Santa)
