Can you bake a cake? Attend a fete? Organise a sponsored dog walk or swim across a chilly lake?
You may have some lovely things to donate for one of our online auctions or perhaps you harbour a burning desire to paint your house greek blue with black and white patches? We are easily delighted so whether your ideas are sensible or bonkers, if you can help us to fundraise for Pointers in Need, we’d love to know.
After all – every penny you raise helps to get these special dogs to a warm home and comfy sofa to curl up on.
Here’s Lyn, one of our brilliant fundraisers:
“I can’t foster or do transport but I can patchwork! I also recycle lovely items which family and friends don’t need. All these things can be raffled or auctioned to provide funds. We needs lots of people to come forward – there are so many ways to contribute. My effort is small but if everyone does what they can, we will make a huge difference to these dogs lives.”
Our Facebook group is also a great way to keep up to date with the latest goings on and events taking place near you. So if you haven’t joined us yet – we’d love to welcome you to our pack!
Pointerfest is a fantastic annual charity event led by a dedicated and very sociable bunch of Pointer people! The aim is brilliantly simple – to have lots of fun whilst raising much needed funds for charities supporting the breed – including Pointers in Need. The all-day event is held in Shrewley, Warwickshire where dogs of all varieties and their human friends can enjoy fun events, try new activities, make friends and soak up the relaxed atmosphere. Pointerfest will take place on 29 July 2017 and is free to attend.
Pointer lovers – please update your calendars now!
The Pointerfest team also extends a warm welcome to anyone who fancies meeting up on one of its regular sponsored walks. Held in beautiful spots across the UK, the walks are a lovely way to make friends and have a grand day out with your dog. Not just for Pointers, every dog is encouraged to come along and join in the fun. Check out the group’s Facebook page to learn more.
