Weʼve raised £685 to support the RSPCA East Winch Wildlife Centre
- King's Lynn and West Norfolk District, United Kingdom

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.
Our walking team is set to take on a new challenge to raise funds for the RSPCA East Winch Wildlife Centre.
We'd like to raise £500 for the centre, a charity close to the company's heart which took in an injured owl (we named Archimedes) found near our offices earlier this year.
On 7th October 2017 the Learning Resources Walking Team will be walking the 13km Watkin Path up Mount Snowdon to raise money for the RSPCA East Winch Wildlife Centre.
This is thought to be one of the most hard going paths up Snowdon, as it starts only a little above sea level. The path starts off wide and quite even, but becomes rocky towards the second half, and then crosses loose scree."
The RSPCA runs entirely on donations from the public, and we'd love to help!
The Centre is renowned for its care of orphaned, sick or injured seals: the staff having gained and passed on a great deal of expertise during the seal distemper virus epidemics of 1988 and 2002. The Centre also takes in a wide range of injured, sick and orphaned wildlife including mammals, birds and occasionally amphibians and reptiles. Birds in fact represent 80% of casualties coming through our doors."
Liz Roffe, Challenge Organiser, said: “This is the fourth year that a team from Learning Resources has embarked upon a walking challenge for charity. They are very determined and have been training since June to make sure they are physically fit to take on the demanding route.”
Alison Charles, Centre Manager at East Winch, said: “We are so grateful to the team for taking on this challenge and we wish them all the best. The money raised is absolutely vital to our day to day work and we just want to say a huge thank you as we really do appreciate it.”
