Sports and challenge events

Sponsored sports events are a fantastic incentive for keeping fit whilst raising money to help animals. You can download a sponsorship form or you can set up a simple sponsorship page online at www.justgiving.com/C-A-P-S/Raisemoney

Swim

The Great Swim takes place in clean and safe lakes, lochs and docklands around the UK! Choose from four distances to suit you, including 1/2 mile, one mile, two miles and 5k courses. Registration online via the Great Swim website. Once you get your registration email, get in touch and we will send you a sponsorship pack.

If swimming outdoors is a bit too adventurous (or a bit too cold!), how about doing a swim at your local pool? You could do it alone or get a team of you involved doing as many laps as you can or even different sorts of swimming races!

Skydive

Quizzes, Coffee mornings and much more!

Coffee morningsThere are whole host of fundraising events that you can arrange to support CAPS. If your local pub holds a quiz night then why not ask them to do one to support us? If you or your friends and family are in a band, you could hold a benefit gig on our behalf. Collection tins in your workplace or sympathetic retail outlets help collect those extra pennies and pounds. How about a coffee morning?

In fact, the list of ways in which you can help is virtually endless. A little bit of imagination and enthusiasm can lead to a fantastic fundraising event!

Contact nicola@captiveanimals.org for help, materials and guidance or check out our fundraising toolkit!
