Thank you for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.
I have been lucky enough to have been given a place in Born Free's Team "run wild" to run The London Marathon 2017 on behalf of VVB Engineering. I aim to raise as much as possible for The Born Free Foundation and for Animal Care Lancaster joint to end the cruelty and keep wild animals in the wild.Please sponsor me :)) Sarah x
More about Born Free...
The Born Free Foundation is a dynamic international wildlife charity, founded in 1984 by the actors Bill Travers MBE and Virginia McKenna OBE, stars of the iconic film Born Free, and their son, Will Travers OBE, the charity’s President. Born Free takes action worldwide to save lives, stop suffering and protect species in the wild. Born Free never forgets the individual. Our emergency teams rescue vulnerable animals from appalling lives of misery in tiny cages, often barren of any enrichment, and gives them lifetime care in spacious bush sanctuaries.
From small beginnings, the Born Free Foundation has grown into a global force for wildlife. But a personal passion for wild animals and desire for positive change remain at our heart. Described by The Times as ‘Big enough to make a difference, but small enough to care,’ Born Free is not a big anonymous organisation, but a family of like-minded people who share the same goals. Our work to prevent individual animal suffering, protect threatened species and keep wildlife in the wild sets us apart from the rest. Learn more about Born Free history here.
This is why Born Free is supported by celebrities including Joanna Lumley, Martin Clunes, Bryan Adams, Rachel Hunter, Helen Worth, Jenny Seagrove and Martin Shaw. Together we reach out to the public, the media and our business friends, who actively support and fund our projects and campaigns, helping hundreds of thousands of animals worldwide.
Animal Care Lancaster
By way of introduction, we are a local very busy animal rescue charity called 'Animal Care'. We have been a registered charity helping animals since 1978. We take unwanted and abandoned animals in from all over the North West and look after them until we can find them loving new homes. We save predominantly dogs, cats, rabbits, guinea pigs, rodents and birds. We rehome over 1000 animals every year. We are the only rescue in this area which can help dogs, cats and small animals so we are always very busy and always very full.
We also rehome ex battery hens, and have two resident goats which we saved from slaughter.
In addition to this we have a wildlife rehabilitation centre, where we take in injured wildlife, which we care for and release after recovery.
Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving - they'll never sell them on or send unwanted emails. Once you donate, they'll send your money directly to the charity. So it's the most efficient way to donate - saving time and cutting costs for the charity
I'm running the London Marathon 2017 for Born Free Foundation because I want to help to end the cruelty to animals.
