Fundraise for us

F Rachael and Figaro

From running marathons to sponsored silences, your wonderful fundraising challenges have helped us to continue our work helping horses in need.

Organising a Challenge

We are always so grateful for your support, and if you’re thinking of organising a challenge in the future, look no further!

Our Fundraising Team will support you every step of the way, from helping you spread the word about your challenge to publicising your final total. Call them on 01626 882668 and they will be able to give you all the information you require. We love to hear about what you’re up to and, no matter how big or small, we will help to make your event as successful as possible.

To get started, why not set up a JustGiving page? This will enable you to keep all of your donations safely in one place while allowing your supporters to donate securely online.

Make a page with JustGiving

If you’re stuck for fundraising ideas, here are just a few things you could try:

  • Endurance challenges (running, swimming, climbing, walking)
  • Exhilarating challenges (bungee jumping, skydiving)
  • Fancy dress / Mufti days
  • Sponsored rides
  • Dinner dances
  • Table-top sales (tack, bric-a-brac, Bake a Cake)
  • Silent auctions
  • Raffles

The Whistlestop Bikers in Teignmouth raised over £200 for the Sanctuary in August 2014 through raffles and prize draws at Teignmouth Railway Station.

Sanctuary staff even held a Onesie Day in March 2014 raising over £400 – our Office Manager certainly got some funny looks when she went to the bank!


I’ve completed a challenge – what do I do now?

If you’ve already finished – well done! All you need to do now is send your sponsorship money to us so we can put it towards helping our wonderful horses. We can of course receive money over the phone or by post, but if you’d prefer to transfer it online, you can do so quickly and securely through our JustGiving page.

Donate with JustGiving

If you’d like to feature your fundraising events on our website and social media, please contact our Press Officer on [email protected] She can have a chat to you about promoting your challenge in local newspapers as well.

We look forward to hearing from you soon and thank you all for your sterling efforts. Good luck!
