Collect your tuppences for toads!

Froglife is encouraging people to collect their small change to support their Tuppence a Toad campaign to help wildlife in the UK.

The Tuppence a Toad campaign will offer extra support to Toads on Roads, and highlights the difference that can be made when we all contribute a little bit.

“So many of us keep our small change in a jar or piggy bank,” said Tina Lindsay, Community Fundraiser for Froglife. “As a small charity working with volunteers, we can make money go a long way to help wildlife. We are asking people to send us those coppers from the back of the sofa so we can put them to good use!”

Tuppence a Toad is a yearlong campaign that launched in October 2010. The tuppences raised funding will go towards:

1. Setting up a funding pot for volunteers
2. Research to improve current methodology
3. On the ground conservation work
4. Publicity and educational materials
5. Lobbying and awareness raising

You can donate your tuppences online at www.froglife.org, over the phone via credit card on 01733 558844 or by popping a cheque in the post to 2a Flag Business Exchange, Vicarage Farm Road, Peterborough, PE1 5TX.

You can also add your fundraising activities to Froglife’s map at www.froglife.org/tuppence/map.htm, whether it’s setting up a 'toady bank', being sponsored for something via Virgin Money Giving (www.virginmoneygiving.com), or hosting a dinner party with Dinner4Good (www.Dinner4Good.com).
