A to Z of fundraising ideas

Organising your own fundraising is a great way to support us and help protect animals all over the world… but where to start?

Our supporters do all kinds of things to help us protect animals – from jumping out of aeroplanes, running marathons, baking cakes to sell to friends – and everything in between.

If you want to fundraise but are stuck for inspiration, don’t worry - our list of ideas should help.
