    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 nonprofit.

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


    Fiona Oakes cares for over 400 rescued animals, including 112 pigs & 76 horses. This is not what Fiona does for a living, she takes no income nor expenses from any donations. All money donated goes straight to the animals. Fiona is also an elite marathon runner and her partner Martin also works full time at the sanctuary.
    Fiona Oakes has made a name for herself as an endurance runner, she is the fastest woman in the world to run a marathon on all seven continents and the north pole in both cumulative and elapsed time. She has competed internationally in more than 50 marathons and set 5 marathon course records around the globe, including The Antarctic Ice Marathon. She has successfully completed the “toughest footrace on earth' the Marathon Des Sables, 250km race through the Sahara Desert numerous times.
    Fiona operates, almost single headedly, an animal sanctuary, caring for over 400 formerly abused and neglected animals, all while training more than 100 miles a week of running. She needs to raise £12k a month to cover outgoings.
    Between marathon running and the sanctuary Fiona puts every last bit of her energy into raising awareness for animal cruelty and showing the world that veganism is not only a compassionate way to live but a healthy way which can fuel you to achieve amazing athletic performance beyond your wildest dreams.
    Fiona is also one of the original founders of Vegan Runners Uk and still works to promote the club.

      We are pushing this again as a result of the news received by Fiona & Martin. The Sanctuary is struggling to meet the funds required to feed the animals & secure the land by installing new fences. Please give whatever you can afford to this wonderful Sanctuary.
