Charity News

Help us make our November eBay Big Auction a success! 19th - 27th November 2012.

On the lead up to Christmas, there's not better time to clear out all your unwanted things and you can do it all whilst raising money for Fairly Beloved Rabbit Care.

Using eBay for Charity, you can list your unwanted items on eBay and opt to have some, or all of your profits from the sale of your items donated directly to the charity and the buyers can opt to Gift Aid donations to us too! Every time you list an item for Fairly Beloved Rabbit Care, you’ll get a fee credit on your basic insertion and final value fees equal to the percentage you donate. So if you donate 50% of your selling price to us, eBay will waive 50% of your fees. Why not donate 100% of your selling price, and have no fees?!?

We want as many people as possible to sell their items during the week of 19th - 27th November 2012, and as the month progresses we will promote our eBay Big Auction to encourage as many people to log on and buy too.

You can sell anything and everything on eBay - new or used. And it's a lot of fun.

So start gathering up your items for sale, and get ready to join in the auction fun!

The Vodafone Foundation World of Difference UK programme gives 500 people the chance to work for their dream charity, and get paid. Over the years they’ve helped hundreds of people donate their skills and experience to the charities of their choice.

For successful applicants the Vodafone Foundation will provide their chosen charity with £2500, with the winner receiving the balance as a salary after NI and tax have been paid. Placements can be full-time for two months or part-time for four months (minimum 15 hours a week).

Obviously for a charity as small as we are, our funds just don’t allow for any paid members of staff at all, and we are solely reliant on volunteers to run the entire service. David & Feona, our charity directors, also run all aspects of the charity in their spare time, trying to fit everything around full-time employment & family life. As such, some of our big ideas have not yet left the ground as finding time to complete these special one-off projects is near-on-impossible.

The World of Difference programme therefore presents an interesting opportunity, and we would be keen to speak to anyone who thinks they could commit their time to developing & implementing a special project for the charity.

If you’ve got the passion and drive to make a real difference to our work, and further improvement in local rabbit welfare, why not get involved?

The process is simple:

  1. Discuss ideas for a project with us (call us on 0141 280 3272 or email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. to arrange a time to discuss it). Bring us your ideas, or ask us for some suggestions. We’ll chat about how we could best use your skills, manage the project, timings etc, and plan out everything you need to know in advance of making an application.
  2. Once we’ve an idea of what you’d be able to do, make your application to the Vodafone World of Difference programme. You need to make the application, but we will offer support where it is relevant to do so. The application deadline is 13th November 2012.
  3. The Vodafone Foundation will review applications and select 500 placements. Successful applicants will be notified after 14th January 2013.
  4. If you are lucky enough to be selected, you must start your placement between 1st March and 29 March 2013.


Please note that funding for these projects is limited to successful Vodafone Foundation World of Difference applicants only, and we will not be able to honour any funding placements if applicants are unsuccessful. It may still be possible for projects to continue unfunded dependent on circumstances.

For more information on the programme, visit The Vodafone Foundation World of Difference website.

Following feedback from people who could not participate in our Binky Hunt due to other commitments we have made a couple of amendments to our competition rules.

To give more people an opportunity to join in, we've changed the starting time on Saturday to 10:00 BST, and you will now have until Sunday 23rd September at 18:00BST to complete the scanvenger hunt.

We've also removed the bonus points for completing first, in order to make it fairer.

So if you want to join in our scavenger hunt for a bit of fun with your family and friends, register today at http://www.fairlybelovedrabbitcare.org/binkyhunt.

You can now play our Binky Hunt scavenger hunt, an excellent family fun activity, for free JUST FOR FUN!

Unfortunately, due to a significant lack of participants, we do not feel it would be viable to run Binky Hunt as a competition. We are therefore withdrawing the competition. We still have the prize available and will consider an alternative fundraiser competition in the near future.

Registration fees for the few people who did register have now been refunded.

However, we still think that Binky Hunt could be an excellent piece of family fun, so have decided to publish the game for you to play, at any time.

Visit http://www.fairlybelovedrabbitcare.org/binkyhunt to download the fun games rules & scavenger list you need to play.

And have fun!
