At the League Against Cruel Sports, our supporters, staff and volunteers are at the heart of every single action we take to end hunting, shooting and animal fighting for ‘sport’.

In response to the Prime Minister's recent advice to limit all non-essential travel and social contact, we have initiated a working from home arrangement for the majority of our staff. We have ambitious plans to defend animals, and we will try to maintain business as usual, but as we navigate the future of our work in these challenging times, we ask for your patience.

What can you expect from us in the coming weeks and months?

  • Contact with us - we will have a limited number of staff responding to your phone calls, letters and emails, so it may take longer than usual to get back to you. If you need to speak to someone urgently, it will be better for you to call us rather than getting in touch by email or letter. We are available from 10am to 4pm, Monday to Friday.
     
  • Events - all events organised by the League have been postponed and will be reviewed against government advice closer to the time, at which point we will communicate with all relevant attendees.
     
  • Campaign support – regrettably, we will be unable to send out campaign leaflets and materials as non-essential social contact is not advised and it would be irresponsible for us to promote gatherings amongst the general public. We are currently revising our campaign tactics so we can continue to campaign effectively throughout this time.
     
  • Donations – it is imperative we continue to raise awareness of our work as well as raising funds. All donations made online or via telephone will be processed immediately but there will be a delay in processing cheques and cash. It may also take us longer than usual to send acknowledgement letters for your generosity but please know that we are grateful for every penny, which will be used to the best of our ability in these challenging times.

We understand this is a difficult and unsettling time for you and your loved ones and that your focus needs to be at home. The times ahead are uncertain and we must be prepared to change our working environment in line with the daily briefings from the Prime Minister. But one factor will remain steadfast no matter what; our determination to end the suffering of animals in the name of ‘sport’.

United, we are a compassionate community of animal advocates and your ongoing support motivates us to achieve our goals for animals; we will keep going.

Let’s not lose touch. You can check our website and social media (links below) for details of how you can continue to help animals, and we will contact you when we have further updates.
