Cosy Kennels Shoebox Appeal 2019

Starting out from Whitmore Bay on Barry Island, we will be walking a picturesque three mile circular walk.

The walk will continue on solid paths and sand for three miles, finishing up where we started.

Vacancy - Community and Events Fundraiser

At Hope Rescue we have ambitious plans to grow our work caring for stray and abandoned dogs across South Wales. We need to grow our unrestricted income in line with our growth plans and that means expanding our small fundraising team.

This role will suit a candidate who is looking to get their teeth into an autonomous role and build on the success of our existing community and events programme.
