Andy Knott MBE, League Against Cruel Sports CEO, raised more than £10,000 by doing 100 sprints across his local park as part of the Captain Tom 100 Challenge Andy sprinted across his local park 100 times to raise money for the campaign to end hunting. Before taking on the challenge, Andy hadn’t run for more than a year. But his effort paid off with more than 400 people generously donating. Even his rescue dog Buddy got involved, racing across the park as Andy completed his final sprint. Andy says: “Nothing can match what Captain Tom did, but as a veteran of many conflicts myself, his example has inspired me to do something to help win the current battle against cruel animal sport.” Martine Peacock raised more than £1,000 by fighting her fear of heights Martine doesn’t like heights. But she cares about animals, and she knew that a wing walk would be a great way of raising money to help them. So, she faced her fears, and strapped herself to the wing of a plane. Dozens of people donated, and combined with matched funding from her work, she raised more than £1,400. Martine says: “As supporters of the League, we all agree that there is nothing sporting about 'field sports', and we can all play our part in helping to relegate them to where they belong, in history. If I can help to raise funds for this vital work by scaring myself witless, I will.” We’re here to support your fundraising efforts If you are planning on fundraising for the League, please contact us for support and guidance any time at [email protected] or 01483 524 250.
