FUNdraising for Nowzad!
We are always so inspired by the imaginative ways in which the incredible Nowzad Family think up ways to raise vital funds for the animals of Afghanistan!
Whether it’s jumping out of perfectly good planes, sponsorships, walking dogs, baking cakes, running stalls in the rain or filling up collection tins, YOU make the difference and save precious lives every day.
If you are raising funds for Nowzad please be sure to get in touch so we can send you a thank you card for your amazing efforts!
Martin High School Fundraiser was held on Friday 18th January and our Founder Pen Farthing and orginal rescue 'Tali' visited the school to talk to all year 7, 8 and 9 students about the vital work that Nowzad carries out in Kabul.
All the learners were very engaged and focused on his presentation as Pen explained Nowzad’s mission and afterwards he was extremely honoured and grateful to collect a cheque from the school for an INCREDIBLE £1000 that Pupils and staff had selflessly raised by various fundraising events including a Halloween Accessory Day, cake bakes, prize draws, Christmas fair cafe and Tombola!
Tali was also presented with an amazing basket of doggie treats and spoilt rotten during the presentations which she thoroughly enjoyed!
Meeting with the young people who had so passionately raised over £1000 for the Nowzad charity was a humbling experience. On behalf of all of us at the Nowzad charity we would like to thank the pupils and staff of the Martin High School for their time and generosity and to Sam and his mum Lisa for being the driving force behind Pen's visit and the fundraising!
