Ferne’s Trails for Tails 250km Challenge…

Jun 9, 2023

Join Ferne for the months of July and August in our Trails for Tails 250km Challenge and help raise vital funds for animals in need.


Running through July and August, Trails for Tails will challenge Ferne’s supporters to cover a total distance of 250km, which is roughly one kilometre for every dog and cat rehomed last year. Ferne has provided refuge to unwanted and abandoned animals for over 80 years and is home to over 300 domestic and farm animals. Our mission is to rescue, rehabilitate and re-home animals which through no fault of their own, find themselves in need of some care, attention, and a safe helping hand.

Whether you’re a fitness fanatic or enjoy a steady stroll, you can do something amazing this summer by participating in the challenge and directly contributing to the Sanctuary and the animals in our care. All you need to do is first sign up to our Trails for Tails 250km Challenge via our dedicated JustGiving fundraising page, or by joining our Trails for Tails Facebook group. Then, from the 1st July to the 31st August, cover the distance of 250km via whatever means you wish…run, walk, cycle, swim – the choice is yours! You can take on the challenge individually or sign up with friends and family to share the distance. Perhaps you have a four-legged friend who would love to join you – but remember to keep them safe during warmer weather.
