10 at 10 Challenge

10 at 10 Challenge

Sunshine Cat Rescue was started ten years ago, in March 2012.   Committee members Lou (Chair and Welfare), Carol (Homing Officer), Julie (Volunteer Co-Ordinator), Sharon (Treasurer) and Sandie were there at the inception;  Margaret (Secretary), Laura (Publicity Officer) and Kathryn (Fundraising Officer) have joined since.   Other volunteers include Lis (Trapping), Jess (Newsletter Editor), Anneka (Ebay), Rosemary (Photography, Sponsorship) and Marg (Twitter, Instagram).   In the last ten years, upwards of 1,261 cats have been rehomed through Sunshine Cat Rescue.

To celebrate our Ten Year Anniversary, Kathryn is in training to do a sponsored walk 2 x 10 miles from her home to Lou’s.   Can you sponsor her £10.00 or even 10 x £10.00?  £10.00 per mile?   Keep an eye on our social media pages for information on how to donate.

Also, during March 2022, we’re setting up the 10 at 10 Challenge, and we’re asking for your help to raise funds by getting friends and family to sponsor you to do something for 10 minutes, for 10 times – or even 10 x 10 times!

Maybe you could run 10 miles?   Swim 10 lengths?   Bake and sell 10 cakes?   Donate £10.00?   Donate 10 x £10.00?   Donate 10 packs of cat/kitten food?  Enter our 200 Club draw for 10 months (with the chance that you could win some of your investment back).    Play 10 rounds of golf in 10 days?  Wash 10 cars?   Give up chocolate and sweets for 10 days?

Hate brussels sprouts?   Could you get sponsored to eat 10 maybe?!   The crazier (but safe) the idea, the better.

Our younger supporters can get involved too.   How about getting sponsored for keeping quiet for 10 minutes?   To hop, skip and jump for 10 minutes?   Play Keepie-Uppie for 10 minutes?   Read 10 books in 10 days?   Play Hopscotch 10 times?

There will be a prize for the Under 16 who raises the most money, a prize for the adult who raises the most money and a prize for the most inventive challenge!

A sponsorship form is attached.

We’re sure you can come up with some wonderful inventive fun ideas to raise much needed funds for the Charity.   Please let us know what you’re planning to do, we have sponsorship and gift aid forms available and will put your ideas on our social media sites.
