Organise your own fundraising event in aid of Ferne

Covid-19 has had a huge impact on the Sanctuary’s income, at a time when our support is in even greater demand, that’s why we need the help of you, our fabulous supporters more than ever!

With our income down 90%, we are appealing to all our supporters to get involved and organise their own fundraising event (or activity) to help raise vital funds at this difficult time. To get you started, we’ve listed some ideas below, and if you’d like to discuss you own fundraising idea with us please get in contact at We are here to support you to make it happen.

  • Fitness challenges of all shapes and sizes, such as a virtual bike ride or run

  • Online quizzes

  • A garden sale to get rid of all the things you’ve sorted during lockdown

  • Making and selling cards

  • A sponsored head-shave

  • Or even a car wash afternoon

Whatever you choose to do, please make sure you follow the guidelines on social distancing and look after yourselves.  Everyone at Ferne really appreciate your support and can’t wait to welcome you back when we’re open to visitors again!

For more information on how you can support Ferne, please contact the Fundraising Team at or by post to the Sanctuary.

Thank you!
