Donations and fund raising

By January 9, 2012The Seahorse Trust News

Dear all, we could do with your help please.

Like a lot of small charities we are being squeezed by the economic situation. In 2012 we have lots of work and projects planned such as continuing our work at Studland, a new seahorse survey for Torbay and our project with Beccy and Jonny in Malta (check out the Malta page under Research), plus many others and we can only do this with help. So if your planning any fund raising events, want to make a donation to our work and can spread the word and can get more people to join our facebook group or become members of the trust or adopt one of the seahorses then we need help.

We need more corporate sponsors so if you know of any companies that would like to make a donation to the work please let them know about us. It costs £45,000 to run the trust each year and if we had more we could do so much more (there is so much to do), so if we could find 45 businesses that could donate £1,000 per annum or 90 that could donate £500 that would cover our basic work and remember that there are tax benefits for donatng to charities as businesses or individuals.

Lets make 2012 a year to remember in seahorse terms, without all of you we could not have done so much to protect these amazing creatures so pester your local businesses and get them to donate now.

The trust is very lucky to have such a fantastic team of volunteers setting up and doing projects and fund raising events, we could not do what we do without them, so a massive thank you to one and all.

Thank you. Neil (Director)
