Wild fundraising business challenge

Looking for a unique challenge?  Want to be one of a group of select businesses? Could you and your colleagues fundraise for us and raise up to £500?

If so, click here to make your pledge.

Get your colleagues fundraising in the most wild and innovative ways you can think of - how about a wildlife themed cake sale or get sponsored to wear your wellies to work!  

Once you have registered, we will get in touch to find out what wild fundraising activities you've been up.  We will be adding the names of all those taking part to our website and making sure your organisation gets some PR.

At the end of the year of Wild Fundraising, we will be holding a thank you event for all those taking part, making a number of awards, such as for the wildest fundraising idea to the largest amount raised.

So, please do join us for a fabulous year of Wild Fundraising!
