Fundraise for Ferne

Could you do something to raise money for us?

Fundraising is a great way to help support Ferne. Every penny raised helps us to continue to provide a vital safety net to animals in need.  Animals, who through no fault of their own find themselves in need of a helping hand, some care and attention and a safe, loving home.

But it’s not just about raising money, it is about your personal achievement, which we want to celebrate alongside you, it’s about inspiring others and of course raising awareness of a cause close to your heart.

What can you do?

There are so many things you can do to help raise money.  This could be online – from fitness challenges of all shapes and sizes, to quizzes or selling items on ebay and nominating Ferne to receive a percentage of the sale.  Or, now restrictions allow us to do more, perhaps a cake sale, a sporting challenge, car wash day or now we’re back in schools and offices a dress up or dress down day!

We’d love to hear any ideas you have and are here to support you to make them happen!


Have you been inspired to fundraise for us? Download our Fundraising Pack HERE. It’s full of tips and ideas – including an A-Z of possible fundraising ideas, lots of which can be adapted to the current regulations.

You can also find out how your money will make a difference and of course how we can help and support you along the way.

Fundraise online

Set up your own online fundraising page using Just Giving.  It doesn’t take long to set up and it is a fantastic way to share your fundraising story across social media and get instant donations. What’s more, the donations come straight to us, so there’s no need to chase your friends and family for the sponsorship they promised.


If you would prefer to raise money offline via sponsorship send us an email or call 01460 65214 and we can send you a Ferne sponsorship form.

Skydiving – something you have always wanted to do? Now’s your chance!

A team of Ferne staff and supporters have decided to throw themselves out of an aeroplane, all to raise money for the animals here at the Sanctuary. On Saturday 19th March, our fearless fundraisers will achieve the highest possible skydive without an oxygen supply!  There is still space to join them on the day, why not do something amazing this year?  You can jump for free if you fundraise for us first.  All you need to do is raise a minimum of £395 for Ferne through sponsorship and the aeroplane door awaits you!  Book your place HERE.  Then once you have signed up, click HERE for our campaign page, then click on start fundraising to set up your own page and start gathering sponsorship.

If you would like more information, please do get in contact with our Fundraising team on 01460 65214, or by email.
