Gearing up for Biggest Fundraising Day!
It's not too late to pledge to 'Wear Green for Margaret Green' this Friday.
We are inviting you to take part in our second annual Margaret Green Day on Friday 20th May to raise money for the animals. All you have to do is ‘Wear Green for Margaret Green!’
Margaret Green Day is a chance for businesses, schools, local groups and individuals to make a difference to a rescued pet’s life by wearing green.
It’s as simple as that – arrange a donation amount such as £1.00 for your colleagues or classmates and make sure you post a photo on social media and tag us - #AllTogetherForAnimals
If you are feeling really adventurous, why not wear an animal onesie all day or organise an extra activity such as a cake sale, raffle or quiz.
It’s the second year we have organised Margaret Green Day, after the success of the first one last year which we hosted as part of our 50th anniversary celebrations.
Last year, funds raised through Margaret Green Day helped Rushington, who came into our care after his owner became too ill to care for him. Rushington is a gentle giant who started his career as a race horse before patiently teaching thousands of people to ride. After a lifetime of work, he is now able to enjoy retirement at Margaret Green Animal Rescue thanks to the generosity of our supporters.
Community Fundraising Assistant, Jazmin, with Rushington, who was rescued last year.
Claire Tice, who volunteers for Margaret Green Animal Rescue and took part in Margaret Green Day last year is encouraging more people to get involved: “It’s wonderful knowing that so many people are all raising money for the animals on the same day - and it’s so much fun as well! I would urge anyone who is thinking about taking part, to just do it. It’s super simple – just ‘Wear Green for Margaret Green!”
