There are many ways that you can raise money for our wildlife and have fun at the same time! Our intrepid supporters have run the Sheffield Half Marathon, undertaken gruelling orienteering challenges and even cycled from John o' Groats to Lands End in the cause of local wildlife.
If you prefer something a little less energetic, why not organise your own cake sale, dress down day or sponsored silence? Be creative!
We would love to hear YOUR ideas for raising money to protect wildlife. Please contact our Fundraising Officer Chris on C.firstname.lastname@example.org or ring the office on 0114 2634335.
