Fundraise for animals!

30 March 2016

The Lord Dowding Fund for Humane Research awards grants to scientists for advanced medical and scientific research that does not use animals. Projects include different types of cancer, kidney research, safety testing, microsurgery, toxicity of dental fillings, Parkinson’s, schizophrenia and programmes to replace the use of animals in teaching.

There are lots of ways that you can help, have fun doing it, meet like-minded people, and recruit more supporters for the LDF.

Take part in a sponsored event for animals!

There are a number of ways you can help to raise awareness and funds for animals – why not consider doing a sponsored event?

From dog walking to sky diving, sponsored clean ups in local wildlife areas, or joining a sponsored event on the internet, such as road trips and marathons – you can have fun and raise much needed funds for animals. For more inspiration, click here.

Join our Street Team

Our street teams are active throughout the year. Street campaigns with tables and displays, or just standing in a busy area collecting funds, are the foundation of public awareness of animals in experimentation.

Hitting the streets makes a very real difference. To take part in a street collection, or to find out more, call us on 020 7630 3340 or email us here.

Recycling is good for the planet and the LDF

Raise funds for the LDF by sending us your old stamps.

More Fundraising Ideas

How about arranging a house party to raise funds? Parties or house gatherings are a great way to bring together people, and any funds you raise can help animals, too. Local businesses are often willing to donate gifts for raffles, or auctions.

Bake Sale – organise a ‘bake sale’ and get your friends to contribute cakes, flans, breads and other easily portable food for people to buy.

Local scouts or girl guides – ask them to spend a day packing in the local supermarkets or doing odd jobs for neighbours

Ask local musicians to do a benefit night

Car Boot Sale or Garage Clearance – you and your friends could organise a car boot sale or garage clearance.

Thank you for caring about those who cannot speak for themselves.
