We don’t receive any government funding, so we rely on people just like you to help raise the money we need to run our rescue centre. So whether on your own, or with a group or club or school class, or with your work colleagues – how about organising an event to raise some money for Borders Pet Rescue?

Here’s some ideas to inspire you:

ednam-primaryEdnam Primary School class S4/5 raised £361 with an impressive triathlon – what a great effort!

lynneLynne was recovering from a chronic illness and challenged herself to get fit enough to swim a mile in 3 hours. She did it in half the time, and she raised an awesome £844 for the animals. Thanks to Lynne and all her support team.

It’s easy to set up your own fundraising page online which you can then share via social media to help spread the word. Here’s a link to our page on VirginMoneyGiving where you can set up your own event page. Just click on “Start fundraising”

At your place of work, how about nominating us as your local “charity of the year”? Every little helps. (Sorry, has that been used before?!) You might even persuade the bosses to have one of our collection tins at your reception desk?
