£440raised of £7,500 target by 14 supporters

Weʼre raising £7,500 to Phase 1 of the purchase of land for Barbara’s Wildlife Rescue.

Dunoon, UK
24 days to go

What is crowdfunding?

Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


Long story short, the opportunity to purchase some suitable land has come up way sooner than expected and we simply don’t have the money - at the moment.

Grants are available but the land is subject to a very tight timeline and grant applications just won’t be completed in time. So I’m appealing to everyone to help us make this happen.

Here are the targets ...

Raise £7500 by the end of the month.

Raise another £60,000 by the end of November (we will be applying for grants to help with this).

The land will be owned by the charity, not me.

12 volunteers and I have helped 202 animals since January this year, this figure may seem small but thats 1 sick, injured or orphabed animal in every single day. The rescue is currently run from my home & that figure doesn’t include the countless phone calls for advice. We are limited by space and we are at bursting point. We can help so many more with more space and upgraded facilities.

What we can also do with purpose built facilities is offer:

Work placements for school children.

Work experience for unemployed adults.

Paid and voluntary positions for adults.

Further support the research and provide more places for individuals with mental health issues.

Further support research into the environmental effects on our iconic and endangered wildlife.

But we need your help.

I or our business advisor will be able to answer any questions you have and there is a Business Plan available for investors. Registered Charity No SC048165

Please give what you can and share - till people start blocking you!! 😉

This is very much achievable, but only with your help.
