At The Racehorse Sanctuary & Rehoming Centre we rely totally on voluntary donations to fund our work in the rehabilitation and rehoming of ex-racehorses. Fundraising is vital to our very existence and ‘every little helps’ from pennies donated in our collection boxes to large scale charity events such as our Racing Days and The Thoroughbred Ball.
There are many ways in which you can help raise money to support the horses in our care.
Get involved by volunteering to help someone else’s event, or organise a fundraising event of your own, such as a coffee morning in your own home for your friends and neighbours. If you are an experienced fundraiser and have ideas of your own, then please contact us now!
Make sure you keep the fun in FUNdraising. If you are new to raising money for a charity, we suggest you don’t start with something too daunting, you should enjoy yourself while working on behalf of the Centre.
To keep it simple, create your own activity page on the Sanctuary’s JustGiving page. E-mail the link to your friends and contacts and post it on Facebook. JustGiving makes it so easy for them to donate online. And don’t forget to send us details and photos for our newsletter, From the Horse’s Mouth, as we would like to use your experiences to inspire others to FUNdraise 4 U.
Here are a few ideas to get you started
- Hold a coffee morning or cake sale

Remember every single penny you raise will go towards the welfare of our horses. Above all have FUN!
All these are essential activities to ensure The Racehorse Sanctuary & Rehoming Centre raises much needed funds to help rehabilitate, rehome, and offer sanctuary to as many horses as possible.
