London-based animal welfare charity, Mayhew, is holding a month of fundraising activities to help raise money for abandoned, neglected and vulnerable animals in the UK and overseas.

During the ‘Month of Mayhew’, the charity is asking people to get creative, from running a marathon to hosting a bake sale in aid of the charity.

The charity are asking supporters to take part in a month-long fundraising campaign

Mayhew’s CEO, Caroline Yates, said, “The work we do just wouldn’t be possible without the generosity of our supporters who choose to help us in whichever way they can. We can’t wait to see the different ways our supporters will be fundraising for us this month!

“All the money raised from Month of Mayhew will go towards us helping more dogs and cats escape a life of cruelty, neglect and abandonment in the UK and overseas.”

The charity has offered some ideas including hosting a Bring your dog to work day; taking part in a marathon, cycle ride or abseil; hosting an animal-themed dress up day at school or work; holding a bake sale; hosting a dinner party dressed all in purple or organising a pub quiz.

To get involved, follow these steps:

  1. Pick a way to fundraise

Choose from one of Mayhew’s fun ideas or come up with your own!

2. Sign up for your free Month of Mayhew pack

Mayhew can send you everything you need to ensure your fundraising goes well, including lots more fundraising tips and ideas, banners, flags, balloons and a collection box. Sign up.

3. Make it Mayhew

Why not add to the fun by making your event dog or cat themed and ‘making it Mayhew’? You could wear cat or dog ear headbands or bake dog or cat shaped cakes – the options are endless! You could even make your colour-theme purple to fit in with Mayhew’s brand.

4. Share your success!

Mayhew would love to see how you are getting on and you might even get a re-share on their social channels if you use the hashtag #MonthOfMayhew

The charity also asks hosts to share photos of their events on social media
