As you can imagine, the cost of running an organisation like Appledown is huge! Bills for food, utilities, vets, cleaning, etc can and do run in to thousands of pounds every month. A large part of our income is from donations.
You can ensure your donations are always gift-aided by filling in our Gift Aid form and returning it to us. Download the form here.There are many ways you can donate:
Terms and Conditions: Each text is a one-off donation and does not tie you into any recurring donations. 100% of the £3.00 will go to Appledown Rescue. The cost to you is £3.00 plus your standard rate for a text message and the donation will be part of your mobile phone bill. Your mobile data will be secure and will not be shared or sold to any third party. You can text as often as you wish.
Look out for our Facebook-based fundraising auctions that take place 3 or 4 times a year. Join the group at https://www.facebook.com/groups/appledown.auction/. You'll find something for everyone amongst the amazing lots on offer.
There are many roles at Appledown for volunteers. Maybe you could spare a few hours to do some cleaning, home-visits or office work? Our small but dedicated fund-raising committee is always looking for new recruits with fresh ideas or maybe you could add your name to the waiting list of dog-walkers. Please contact us if you can help in any way, however small. Unfortunately, we do have to insist on volunteers being at least 18 years of age.
