Wood Green, The Animals Charity regularly carries out face-to-face fundraising campaigns in and around local high streets, shopping centres and door-to-door. Fundraisers talk to hundreds of people about the work of Wood Green asking them to support us by making a regular donation by Direct Debit.
Why do we use this method of fundraising?
Wood Green doesn’t receive any government or lottery funding, therefore we rely on the support of donors. Face-to-face fundraising means that we can inform potential supporters of our vital work and the needs of the Charity.
By receiving regular gifts via Direct Debit, we are able to continue caring for the animals looking for new homes and plan ahead for the future. Direct Debit is also a cost-effective way to donate as it allows us to keep our administrative costs to an absolute minimum.
Below is a short video about why we need your support in this way to continue helping thousands of animals like Honey and Clara.
Who are the fundraisers?
Our fundraisers are recruited by professional fundraising agencies and all fundraisers are fully trained representatives of Wood Green. They are a highly motivated and hard-working groups of individuals who are work hard to acquire long-term supporters on Wood Green's behalf. The fundraisers are vetted for their integrity with regards to their campaigning ethics and are trained on the importance of handling confidential information.
What do the fundraisers look like?
They are typically aged between 19 and 35. Not only do they display their valid photo identification at all times but they are easily identifiable by the Wood Green branded clothing they wear.
What will they ask for?
