    Weʼve raised £954 to help fund the North Ronaldsay Sheep Festival 2017

    Funded on Wednesday, 12th October 2016

    Don't have time to donate right now?


    North Ronaldsay is an Island close to my heart, and this Summer I helped to rebuild parts of the 13-mile sheepdyke that have been damaged by severe storms. Without the protection of this sheepdyke, the Island's rare sheep are at risk. The Island's first ever Sheep Festival was a huge success, with volunteers and islanders coming together to help, and the achievements were huge. But we want to do more!

    What better way to raise funds for the 2017 Sheep Festival than running the distance of the sheepdyke? This October, I will be running my second ever half-marathon (The Royal Parks Half-Marathon - 13.1 miles), and thinking of the Island with every step!

    Please help me in my mission towards funding an even better Festival for 2017 - funds raised will go towards extras such as transport for volunteers (we are hoping to hire a minibus), and ongoing Festival costs. We are also thinking of making a line of Sheep festival mugs and t-shirts - what better souvenir from a conservation holiday like no other?

    For more information and pictures of 2016's brilliant year, you can visit our website at, and on Facebook at

    Thank you in advance! Kate x

    (The funds raised will be looked after and allocated by The Orkney Sheep Foundation, Scottish Charitable Incorporated Organisation Number SCIO 045392)

      Wow, I can't believe it's over!! My feet are hurting and the blisters are still popping up but I am thrilled to say that I completed the half marathon (without stopping and despite some serious leg cramping) in 2hr and 8 mins. Your support and my gratitude to all those who have so kindly sponsored me helped get me through it, and I am thrilled to say that together we have raised over £1,000 in online and offline donations!!! HUGE thank you - I quite literally could not have done it without you. Many, many thanks xoxoxoxoxoxox

It is hugely appreciated and will keep me running when the going gets tough :) A big thank you also for my sponsorships offline - accounting for £46 to add to the total on the right. Gosh, you are a lovely lot! Many thanks, Kate xxx
