How you can help the North Devon Branch!

We receive no government funding to do our work. As a branch of the RSPCA, the North Devon branch is a separately registered branch of the RSPCA and responsible for raising funds locally.


Our main expenses are the cattery boarding fees, animal rehoming costs, running our welfare scheme, veterinary fees and professional services.


To cover these expenses, we operate seven charity shops in Barnstaple, Braunton, Combe Martin,Ilfracombe, Torrington and two in Bideford, alongside a programme of fund raising events throughout the year.

Are you interested in holding a fundraising event to help raise funds for the North Devon RSPCA Branch?


Then please, get in touch!


We are always happy and ready to help where we can :)


There is a BRILLIANT tips for fundraising sheet on the main RSPCA website - view the PDF factsheet - following this link takes you to the main RSPCA website


There are lots of ideas for fundraisers you can host which are simple but effective.


At work


~Have a 'dress down day' and charge colleagues £1 to come to work in casual clothes, to wear a silly tie or an outrageous pair of earrings!


~Ask your boss to donate a small prize and hold a raffle.


~Ask your staff canteen to give the menus animal names for one week. Get them to put a collecting box at the till and ask for a donation from anyone who goes for those dishes!


~If you have a smoking area, charge smokers a small fee to enter all week - all proceeds to the RSPCA.


~Ask your colleagues to bring in a tin of pet food each. Donate them to your local RSPCA branch or animal centre.


Contact your local RSPCA branch and ask them what activities they have planned - put up a poster for them on your staff noticeboard to help them with publicity.


At home


~If you go to the gym, get friends and family to sponsor you on the treadmill, rowing machine, stepper and in the pool for your workouts.


~Get your local landlord to run a pub quiz and donate the entry fees to the RSPCA.


~If you belong to a golf club or any other sporting club, hold a small raffle or run a 'slave auction' in the bar.


~Organise a jumble sale.


~Gather your loose change and start a "Copper Pot" - it is amazing how much money you will have amassed from all those 1 & 2 pence pieces!


~Have a good clear out and donate any unwanted clothes or bric-a-brac to your local RSPCA charity shop.


~Hold a coffee morning at mother and toddler groups.




~Make animal shaped cookies and sell them to friends and family.


~Join in the RSPCA/Jet Tec cartridge recycling scheme.


~Organise a sponsored dog walk with friends in the park.


~Do a sponsored swim or silence.


~Hold a bring and buy sale at guides/brownies/scouts/youth clubs etc.


~Get friends to bring in pictures of their pets and make up an animal board. Charge a small entry fee and get everyone you know to guess whose pet belongs to who.


~Have a pop quiz and charge people to enter.
