If you are planning an event or challenge please could you consider fundraising on our behalf?
Four weeks in the saddle, 2,500 km on a circuit of France, alone. There were times when the whimsical post-retirement concept (Taste the wines! Improve language skills! Admire scenery!) did not quite match reality in France’s worst summer for years. One wet and windy week in, the sponsorship I carried with me for ZOA was a huge help in maintaining motivation to keep going.
The weather (and my French) improved, the final week (Loire valley) had much the best cycling roads, and my generous sponsors coughed up willingly to the tune of over £5,000 plus gift aid back home. I still smile thinking of it.
Now, I have the grandchildren fundraising for ZOA as well. Christmas: an “entertainment” by them, with every adult relation charged £5 entry, attendance – of course – compulsory.
Other supporters have raised funds by:
- Climbing mountains
- Holding fashion swap events
- Throwing dinner parties
- Cycling from Land’s End to John o’ Groats
- Running 5Ks to marathons
- Auctioning art work
- Holding collections at concerts and plays.
It’s simple to set up a personalised fundraising page at www.justgiving.com/zoauk. This can be shared with family and friends and donations go directly to ZOA-UK.
