Ho Ho How do you fancy getting into the spirit of Christmas and at the same time raising vital funds for the animals at our centre?! Did you know that £20 will care for a dog or a cat at Raystede for one day and will go towards looking after them until they go on to find their forever homes.

We're calling on you to wear your Christmas jumpers for Raystede, and donate £2 by following the link below.

There will be a prize for the best Christmas jumper worn by an adult and a prize for the best Christmas jumper worn by a child! We will give you a hint that animal based Christmas jumpers are our favourites. :-)

After paying your £2, you can either post a photo of you in your jumper up on our Facebook Event page: https://www.facebook.com/events/194224794356893/

Alternatively, you can send your photo to jcampbell@raystede.org!

Sunday, 15 January 2017, 11:00 - 14:00

Come and join Bertie and other dogs on a Raystede Sponsored Dog Walk in the beautiful Stanmer Park!

The walk will be 3 miles long, so if you'd like a gentle New Year stroll with your four legged friend, as well as raising money for the animals at Raystede, then this is the pawfect event for you! There will be some dog agility obstacles for your dog to try along the walk, which will challenge them further.

Our kennels cost a staggering £25,000 to run a month, so join Bertie the French Bulldog on the walk and help the dogs and other animals at Raystede be cared for until they find their forever home.

Kids can join the walk for free and there will be a 'Best in Show' competition after the walk, as well as a 'Musical Sit' and various stalls. The 'Best in Show' competition will cost £2 to enter your dog into all the below categories:

Dog the judge would most like to take home

If you would like to book on, we're asking for a £2 registration fee and the sponsorship target is £30 per person that signs up. After you book on we'll be sure to send you out welcome pack and every dog will receive a treat for completing the walk!

Do you fancy taking on a big challenge in 2017 for Raystede? We're challenging you to run Brighton's very own half marathon, and at the same time raising vital funds for the animals at our centre.

2017 will be the 27th year of the Vitality Brighton Half Marathon. One of the first major halfs in the running calendar, the race is now one of the most popular races in the UK.

The start and finish of the race are on Madeira Drive next to the Steve Ovett statue. During the run you will enjoy wonderful cliff top and panoramic city views, as well as seeing the iconic blue railings on Marine Parade, and running past Brighton Pier and the West Pier on the horizon.

If you're interested in signing up, you can sign up on the link below, or phone us on 01825 840747. The registration fee is £30 and we ask that you raise £150 in sponsorship, to help us continue to rescue, re-home and provide sanctuary to a huge variety of animals.

All our charity places for the Brighton Half Marathon have currently sold out, but if you have your own place and would like to run for us we would love to hear from you. Please contact us on 01825 840747 and we will send you out a welcome pack and will make sure we're there to cheer you on, on the day. Alternatively you can email jcampbell@raystede.org.
