Choose your own fundraiser

Be a force for change and support DSWF by fundraising and inspiring others to help protect wildlife. Here are some ideas to help you choose a fundraising challenge that suits you!

Get active

Take part in an organised challenge – such as a cycle race, fun run, cross-country hike. Plan your own sponsored walk, run or climb (and don’t forget your four-legged friends!). Invite friends to step out of their comfort zone and try something new like an abseil, bungee jump or skydive.

Get social

Bring together friends, family and colleagues for a coffee morning, dinner party or wine tasting in support of DSWF. Have a stall at the local school, church or community event and talk to others to help spread awareness about DSWF’s work. Open your garden to visitors or host a barbecue

“Fundraising has given me the opportunity to engage with like-minded people and it has been fun meeting so many new enthusiasts.”

Share your talents

Make the most of your talents and hobbies to raise funds for DSWF. Whether you knit, paint, craft or bake, you’ll be able to put your skills to good use. Why not host an arts evening, concert or quiz – invite your local community and share the work of DSWF with local clubs and groups.
