The Big Give

We are hoping to raise vital funds for the development of a Wildlife Hospital and Rehabilitation Unit. At Idlewild Animal Sanctuary we already provide a safe haven for over 140 animals plus our rehoming programme and we are being asked more and more to take on and rehabilitate wildlife. We are receiving calls from the local vets and local people and we need to put in place a Wildlife Hospital and Rehabilitation Unit to facilitate helping all these animals in need. We really need local companies and individuals to support us and help raise the funds to take part in this Big Give Campaign.

We are aiming to raise a total of £4,000 in pledges to take part in the Christmas Challenge. This has the potential to then be multiplied up to a total of £16,000 which will then enable the development of the Wildlife Hospital and Rehabilitation Unit. 

Would you please consider making a pledge of £100 (or a multiple of £100) to help us reach our target?

you would be willing to make a pledge to us, you can do so by completing this online form by the deadline of 5pm, Friday 28th August.

The timeline for fulfilling the pledge (i.e. transferring the funds to us) is 9th December 2020 to 15th January 2021.

What is the Christmas Challenge?

The Christmas Challenge (the UK’s biggest online match funding campaign) helps UK-registered charities to raise funds for their projects by doubling donations when the campaign goes live on 1st December. You can find full details of the Christmas Challenge, and how your pledge will enable us to be part of the UK’s largest Matched Funding Challenge, on theBigGive.org.uk. Research shows that 84% of donors are more likely to give in a match funding campaign and that donations are on average 2.5 times bigger so we’re very excited about the opportunity to take part.
