Fund raising is vital to the work of The Trust. We are extremely grateful for the many ways supporters raise funds for us to supplement the donations, sponsorships etc. In addition we organise fund raising events ourselves and here you will find mention of ideas for fund raising, details of events in the future including those Dog shows at which you can find a Border Collie Trust GB stand to purchase goodies and obtain information on our work.
As individuals there are many ways you can help the The Trust raise much needed funds, here's just a few examples:-
There are a growing number of companies offering goods and services who then donate a percentage to The Trust - for more information visit Business Supporters Join or promote our Weather Lottery amongst family, friends and work colleagues. Send us your old and unused mobile phones, old (not compatible ones though) printer cartridges and toners, CD's, DVD's and games (please read the following) which we can recycle and earn funds for our work.
Hold/attend a Car Boot Sale, Coffee Morning, Garage Sale, Bazaar etc or collect items suitable for us to sell at Car Boots sales.
