Mayhew

Make May the month of the Mayhew

London-based animal welfare charity, Mayhew, is holding a month of fundraising fun in May to continue their vital, life-saving work to help abandoned, neglected and vulnerable cats and dogs, as well as owners in need, both in the UK and overseas.
During Month of Mayhew, you can be as creative as you like in how you fundraise for the animal welfare charity; from holding a cake sale and adding a dog or cat-themed twist, to running a marathon to hosting a dinner party dressed all in purple (Mayhew’s colour, of course!).
