Hi my name is kayleigh, as most of you will already know, and I am asking for your help.
On the 4th of July 2012 my life changed - I moved into a all-girls hostel. I was unable to take my best friend with me, my dog Angel, and it broke my heart. I asked some friends if they would be able to look after her until I could arrange something more permenant. I had a few friends help me out by taking Angel in and making her feel welcome. Unfortantely, over the last few months Angel has been staying at a local dog shelter. I would like to bring Angel home because I miss her, and she misses me. I visit her all the time, and I stay in contact with the shelter, making sure that Angel is happy and secure. My friends miss Angel too. Angel is like an extension of me - we have grown over the last several years together. It has been such a diffcult time for both myself and Angel, and I don't want to leave Angel in the shelter - I want to bring my best friend home!
I am currently waiting to move into my own flat which means I can have Angel back with me, but the shelter isn't free and I need to pay for Angel's stay at the shelter. That is why I am asking for your help and support. I need to be able to raise at least £250, which will be achieved through sponsored fundraising events and donations.
Sponsored fundraising events
Elf on the run
I will be dressing up as an elf and jogging around Bedford park. I ask to be sponsored for each succesfully completed lap (amount of monies is up to you). Lets hope it's not too cold!
Date: 2nd February 2012
Location: Bedford park
Me and my friend (male) will be swapping genders for the night. I will go as a man and he will go as a lady. We will be undertaking tasks set by you, pretty much anything. For each person that sets a task I ask for your sponsorship (amount of monies is up to you). Please be kind when setting tasks!
Date: 12th February 2012
Time: 8pm onwards
Location: Esquires (alternative music venue), Bromham Road, Bedford
More sponsored fundraising events to be arranged - I welcome any ideas or participation.
And lastly, aside from the sponsored fundraising events, which I look forward to completing, I ask kindly for any donations people would like to make toward bringing Angel home!
Thank you all for your help and support, and for taking time to be part of something special.
