Scale the heights and abseil for local animal charity

LOCAL ANIMAL welfare charity The Blue Cross is seeking energetic fundraisers to take part in a national abseilathon. Forthcoming dates include Saturday 8 and Sunday 9th June at the Thistle Hotel in Luton and Sunday 28th July at the John Ratcliffe Hospital in Oxford.

The charity, which has 11 small animal adoption centres and two equine centres across the UK, hope to raise over £4000 from these and 10 other similar nationwide. All funds will go towards helping The Blue Cross continue to fulfil its unique role in caring for animals.

Davina Williams, fundraising events officer at The Blue Cross says: “We’d welcome anyone who would like to take part in these events. Young or old your local abseilathon will offer a rewarding, fun packed day for all local residents. Your participation will help the thousands of animals which The Blue Cross cares for every year.”

No experience is required to take part, as each participant will be given full training on the day. Participants need to register with a deposit of £15 and then raise a minimum of £145 in sponsorship. Group fundraisers will benefit from a discounted sponsorship fee.

For those who want to raise money please contact The Blue Cross on 01993-825502 for a free information pack.
