Thank you for considering raising money for Capable Creatures when there are so many other valuable causes warranting your time and efforts.

Developing and implementing a 'Guides for the Mind Assistance Dog Programme', assisting people with Mental Health Conditions train their own 'Guides for the Mind' Assistance Dogs, developing and offering Dog Assisted Therapy and Dog Assisted Activities and offering Peer Support to Dog Owners, Dog Lovers, their family and personal assistants/support workers can only happen through the incredible enthusiasm and work of generous supporters like you.

Fundraising Ideas

  1. Coins for Minds
    Why not empty your jingly loose change/coins into a jar and lighten your load and then when the jar is full send it to Capable Creatures and how about getting family and friends to do the same!
  2. Money Mile
    How about asking shoppers in your local town centre to help make a Money Mile by giving their coins. Might be wise to have a few volunteers spread along the route to help with this one!
  3. Variety show
    What about asking local bands, comedians, choirs, dancers and performers to give their talent and put on a show. See if you can get a venue for free!
  4. Need for a Declutter
    Time for a clear out - why not flog excess possessions/clothes or unwanted gifts on ebay and give some or all your earnings to Capable Creatures
  5.  Keep Fit and have Fun
    How about getting your trainers on for a Sponsored Walk/Run/Marathon, Football/Rugby/Basketball Match etc, Tug of War, Swimathon, or any other Sponsored Sporting Activity that takes your fancy.
  6. Let's Party
    What era are the bands you listened to when you where younger from? How about a Disco with music and dress from that era? Or do you fancy Fancy Dress, a Murder Mystery, Doggie Event or other crazy mad party of your own making?
  7. Bit of a Mad Max
    Up for a Sponsored Wax, Head-Shave, Bean-Bath, Bake-Off, Outdoor Swim or other outlandish activity that only you can conjure up?
  8. Fancy Yourself as Bit of an Entrepreneur
    Are you or the people you know a bit of a sales person and/or crafty and up for baking some cakes, making some cards, sculptures, paintings, ornamental items, accessories or any other items you dream up to sell
