Big Hound Chill Out
Chill out… and help hounds!
To celebrate all of our dozing hounds at Forever Hounds Trust, we are pleased to announce that August Bank Holiday Weekend 2018 will see the return of the Big Hound Chill Out!
‘What’s that?’ we hear you cry. Well, we all know that a lot of greyhounds and lurchers like nothing more than a good chill out, snoozing on a sofa, or stretching out in their favourite comfy spot. Now you can help us big up our dozing hounds by holding your own Chill Out event – fun and fundraising all rolled into one!
Our mission is to get people chilling up and down the country and taking part in the Big Hound Chill Out couldn’t be easier. You just need to pick a great way to relax, invite some people along and ask them for a donation in return for a chance to chill! You don’t even need a hound to take part and you can be anywhere in the country too – or perhaps the world!
From a coffee and cake morning at work to a pamper night in with the girls, you can turn pretty much any of your favourite ways to relax into a fundraiser. Or perhaps you wind down in a more active way – maybe you would like to organise a sponsored walk or a summer BBQ.
Can’t wait to get started? Whatever you decide to do, you can download our FREE Big Hound Chill Out Fundraising Guide which has everything you need to make your idea a success. We want to hear from you so we can offer you full support so contact us for more information and to tell us about an event you have planned.
Can’t take part?
You can still make a donation via text – it’s an easy way to support our hounds! Simply text BHCO18 and your amount to 70070 to donate to FHT and make a difference today! You can donate either £1, £2, £3, £4, £5 or £10 (so, for example, text BHCO18 £10)- it all raises vital funds for our work.
You can also spread the word in your local communities to reach people that can. Please click here to download a poster that you can print at home and put up where you live (always ask permission!)
What’s more, you can join us at one of our already-organised chills, such as:
- Our pre-chill out as part of the Dogs on the Den show, Teignmouth, Devon
- Mocktails and Pawsecco in Frome, Somerset
- Helping the environment and enjoying the beach in Lancing, West Sussex
From small and cosy to big and bold – however you chill out, your support means a lot to us and any amount you raise will make a real difference to dogs in our care. So what are you waiting for? See you on the sofa!
