Why fundraise for Blue Cross?

Every month, thousands of cats, dogs, horses and small pets turn to Blue Cross for help. We care for them when they’re sick or injured, and find them loving new homes if they’ve been given up or abandoned. But we know it’s not enough – there are many more pets out there who still desperately need our support.

We provide expert advice on behaviour, education for both current and future owners, and bereavement support for those struggling with the loss of a much loved pet. We don’t receive any money from the government, so we couldn’t do our valuable work without generous donations from the public and from businesses like yours.

Why should your workplace take part?

Finding a fun way to give back to charity can be great for teamwork. It brings people together to compete against one another and to work with colleagues and friends to complete challenges. Fundraising can also be the boost some people need to make a change they’ve been putting off for some time.

Thinking of stopping smoking, walking to work, or taking up a new hobby? Getting others to sponsor you for a week could be the motivation you need to get started. If doing that helps in any way to build confidence amongst your teams, to give people something new to talk about, and to raise awareness of your company’s approach to its corporate social responsibility, then we feel we've given a little back as well.
