At The Mayhew we are holding a special May-hew fundraising month when our supporters will be raising funds to help us help more animals in need.
Money raised during May will go towards the crucial help that our Animal Welfare Officers give to unwanted, abused and neglected animals as well as supporting vulnerable pet owners who are in difficulty to look after and keep their pets. Our Officers also support the homeless and their dogs all year round and prevent animal welfare issues arising in the first place through their community programmes and education – which means that animals don’t end up in a shelter like ours.
It costs on average £271 per day for our Animal Welfare Officers to carry out their vital work. We want to inspire our community to help us cover their costs throughout May so we’re aiming to raise £8401.
Since 2000, our Animal Welfare Officers have been working tirelessly in the London community and their work wouldn’t be possible without the generosity of our supporters.
We’d love our generous supporters to arrange their own fundraising activities or events with friends, family, work colleagues and fellow cat and dog lovers during May. You can be as simple, spontaneous, ingenious and original as you like to raise money for us. Here are a few ideas to get you in the fundraising mood:
We’re also encouraging London organisations, community groups, schools, universities, cubs and scouts to raise money and join in the fun, so get in touch!
Our supporters have already arranged some fantastic events during Month of May-hew including:
Why not come along and meet our Animal Welfare Officers in person, bring your dog and get free microchipping too! They’ll be at Regents Park on 6th May 2017. You can also come along to support us at our popular Open Day event on Sunday 21st May 2017. It’s a celebratory street party packed with entertainment, music, stalls, drinks and a BBQ and you’ll be able to see behind-the-scenes and meet and talk with Mayhew staff.
If you prefer to do something physical instead, how about signing up to one of our running and challenge events with friends.
Donate to help our Animal Welfare Officers
If you don’t have the time or energy to organise something, you can simply donate to help our Animal Welfare Officers so that they can rescue animals and offer the much-needed support to pet owners. Below are costs to give you an idea of how your money can help.
And finally, we’d love to help. So if you have a fundraising idea and need support, call our fundraising team on 020 8206 5877 or email [email protected]
