Can you help us walk 500 miles?

  • by

Like everyone else COVID- 19 has severely restricted our opportunities to have our usual fundraising events. We are extremely lucky and very grateful for all the donations and support that we receive which allows the Ark to continue to be free to all our visitors. 

We have also been fortune in receiving grants for various projects which have greatly improved all areas of the Ark over the years. 

But the running costs for hay, straw, feed, farrier, vet, insurance etc continue.

As we are unable to have our usual fundraising events we decided some kind of sponsored walk could be a safe option for fundraising. 

As the funds will be used towards the upkeep of the animals it seemed a good idea to involve them too.  

However, for various reasons not all of the animals will be able to take part. So we wondered if our other human and animal friends could help us? 

Our goal is to walk 500 miles in 15 Days between 29th June and 12th July 2021

We will post our miles each day and take some photos along the way. 

But we don’t think we can manage 500 miles on our own and wondered if anyone humans and/or animals would like to “ donate” some miles to us? 

If you could send your miles (and any photos of yourself / pets/ scenery if you don’t mind them being used) to us we will add them to our total. 

If anyone would like to donate to the challenge, there is a PayPal button on our web site Clarks Little Ark – Clarks Little Ark, Award winning Scottish Charity based in Sanquhar, Dumfries & Galloway

Please say it is for the 500 mile challenge. 

Alternatively you can pay direct to the Friends of Clark’s Little Ark 

sort code -83 17 21

Account number – 0029543 again saying it is for the 500 mile challenge.

We will post updates throughout the challenge and hope to make a keepsake diary of the miles covered. Thank you 😊
