Final push for StayCATion Appeal 2020

Like so many other charities, we've had to rethink the way we raise funds and involve supporters this spring and summer. No fetes (like last year's Easter Day, above) and special events for us. We're grounded. So this is what we've come up with instead... the BARKS StayCATion Appeal - Spring & Summer 2020 - TARGET £5000

26 June 2020: our lockdown appeal is entering its final phase, aiming to beat its target of £5000.

We launched the StayCATion Appeal in a bid to overcome the cancellation of traditional fundraising events this spring and summer.

Chair Ann Collins explains: “We've raised just over £4,500 so far, through our creative ideas and supporters' generosity.  As well as donations and online events, we've had a stream of well wishers leaving suitable food and supplies at Bodicote.

“Our small core team of volunteers has worked really hard to keep our income going, both to care for animals and to make sure we're afloat at the end of all this. We just can't afford to take our foot off the pedal.”

The finale to the appeal will be an online raffle and our first pet portrait competition which will launch in July. Watch this space!!
