Stray for a Day 2015

Friday, 10 July 2015, 20:00

Adult Event

Have you ever thought what it would be like to be one of Britain’s stray dogs or cats? Sleeping rough, starving, afraid, injured or sick, running from humans and roads, lost and trying to find your way home and scared, very, very scared.
When you look into the eyes of a stray animal you can see there are untold stories that we will never know but what we do know is they need our help, our help to regain their faith in humans, to nurture them and make them well again physically and psychologically.
Here at Raystede 40% of dogs admitted to kennels are strays. Cattery it is 16% of all cats.
Currently in the UK there are estimated to be 2 million stray cats and between 2013 and 2014 over 110,000 thousand dogs were reported to local authorities nationally, this does not include those who escaped the statistics and never found their way into the arms of a loving place like Raystede!
Would you like to raise funds to help the many animals that find their way to Raystede by experiencing what it is like to sleep out, just like a stray, for a night?

There are two ways to take part:

You can come and join us at Raystede on Friday 10th July and sleep out under the stars with fellow Raystede supporters whilst raising sponsorship to do so. (Over 18s only). There is also opportunity to book a breakfast bap for those completeing at Raystede (additional £3)!

Or if you prefer you can sleep out in your garden at home with your family and raise sponsorship that way (all age).

Please click below to register today! Once registered you will be sent a sponsorship pack which includes paper forms and instructions for using Everyday Hero for online sponsorship.

Prices: Stray at Raystede with Bacon Bap Breakfast - £8.00; Stray at Raystede with Veggie Bap Breakfast - £8.00; Stray at Raystede (18+) - £5.00; Stray at Home (all ages) - £5.00
