Fundraising Challenges: Who’s your champion?

A fundraising frenzy is taking over Froglife in the coming months, with Froglife friends, staff and volunteers all getting involved to raise some much needed funding for conservation. But that’s not all... Froglife CEO Kathy Wormald has pledged to DOUBLE the amount raised by the highest fundraiser, so why not take a moment to sponsor one of them and help them reach their target!

Half Marathons for Herpetofauna

With simultaneous half marathons in London and Peterborough, Froglife staff and supporters will be promoting awareness of the plight of amphibians and reptiles, and raising some money for their conservation in the process.

Taking on The Great Eastern Run in Peterborough will be Green Volunteer of the Year Graham Patton, along with Froglife’s Laura Brady and Liam Atherton.

Meanwhile, Froglife Friends Angela Wormald, Diane Barker and Georgina Ferguson, are all looking to conquer the Royal Parks Half Marathon in London.

Both runs will take place on Sunday 9th October 2011.

Peddling for Puddocks

Did you know that ‘puddock’ is a Scots word for a frog? Froglife’s Eilidh Spence is taking part in this year’s Tour de Ben Nevis, circumnavigating the base of the largest mountain in the UK. The 72km mountain bike route takes place on Saturday 24th September - Eilidh has been training for several months now and hopes to complete the ride in less than six hours! Click here for a preview of what Eilidh can expect to encounter on the day.
