Fundraise
for us

Helping us to raise the money we need to secure better lives for horses and ponies can be a great source of fun in your leisure time.

Knowing you’re helping bring about change for the better, helps make you feel good and that you are part of a valuable team effort. We know – because we have first-hand experience!

Many of our Trustees are very experienced fundraisers – their efforts in 2019 have thankfully secured just over £5000 in our preparatory year, in order to cover some of the costs of horses and ponies in our care and prepare for Registered Charity status.

We also successfully commissioned this website in the same year and invested in our Launch Event originally planned for May 2020 but now unfortunately postponed due to Covid 19.

If you are keen to help us raise the all-important funds, needed to carry on our essential work – we thank you! Before you start on your project on our behalf, please Contact Us for a Registration Form or download one HERE.

Complete your details and return the form to us. We are then there for you at the end of the telephone, to give advice and support your activity as and when needed.

You can also run an online fundraiser using our chosen partner, People’s Fundraising. Click here https://www.peoplesfundraising.com/user/register_input Sign up and start your very own fundraiser on behalf of Here4Horses.

All efforts on behalf of Here4Horses will be sincerely appreciated.

How can you help?

Although we have received very generous donations from some of the Trustees themselves, it is amazing how many small events, like a Coffee Morning raising around £60 and a collection of £175 at a WI Speaker Evening have helped bring us to this point.
These relatively small amounts will be key to our continued success – as every little really does help!
The fundraising events you could organise and undertake are many and varied – it all depends on what interests you have and how much of a challenge you wish to set yourself.

Remember, it’s your leisure time and therefore very important that it is fun!
The Here4Horses team are always on hand to offer advice and to help you decide on the best idea for an event.

Some starter ideas for you

  • Hand knit hats, gloves and other items to sell
  • Take part in a sponsored walk, run, cycle or pleasure ride or if you like a real challenge run a marathon or climb a mountain
  • Run a cake stall at a school event or at work
  • Raise some bedding plant or vegetable seedlings to sell
  • Organise a tombola, bake off competition or prize quiz at your place of work

Bigger challenges include

  • Organise a bucket collection at your local supermarket or
  • Run a local show, village event, quiz or race night.

We are here to help you with whatever activity you choose – simply contact us to discuss your proposal.

Crowdfunding

Crowdfunding has been used for centuries in various forms but is a relatively new concept as an internet based fundraising practice. It is now an important way for charities like ours to reach a wider audience and raise money.

You could consider using a Crowdfunding platform yourself to raise money for us. You can also go directly online to get your event information out to your friends and family in a way that is quick and efficient. It also makes use of links on your social media and those of the people you are sharing it with.

You can Crowdfund for one of our individual ponies or talk to us to discuss projects that particularly matter to you.

This method of raising funds removes the need to find a process to collect money. It can also be a good way to encourage people to sign up for Gift Aid which saves charities like ours from paying tax on the money people donate.

This is a REALLY important way for us to boost funds.
