Fundraising Ideas


Every second month we host an online auction including a bumper hand made craft auction every November. The Auction Page also hosts pop up fundraising events during the non auction months. Our auction is organised through Facebook, where you can view many wonderful items that have been donated to raise funds for Saving Strays UK. Click here to visit our Facebook Auction Group and can place a bid on one of the items by commenting on the photo with your bid amount. We are always looking for donated items for our online Auction, so if you have any new or nearly new items or you are a crafter and have home made items to donate or you would like to create items for the auction as one of our contributors, you can email us here or drop a message on the Auction Page.
