Local RSPCA Animal Home is looking for cyclists

Your local RSPCA York, Harrogate & District Branch is looking for cyclists to sign up for their popular bike ride/sportive, the Yorkshire100, on Sunday, August 4th.

Anyone taking part will be helping to raise funds to help the many animals they care for at their York Animal Home and those in foster care in the community.

The fully supported ride offers a great day in the saddle, with free refreshment stops, including a lunch stop on each route, mechanical and medical support etc plus medal, goody bag and cake and a cuppa at the finish.

Entry is only £36 with no obligation to fundraise or make a donation – although the animals will appreciate any extra funds!

Join Team Martin House at the York 10K in August

There’s still time to sign up to run the York 10K in aid of Martin House.

The hospice’s charity places may all be sold, but there is still time to join the Martin House team and raise money for the local charity supporting children with life-shortening conditions and their families.

By signing up through the York 10K organiser’s site, Run for All, runners can choose to support Martin House and have the support of the events fundraising team in the run up to the event and on the day. Places can be booked via: www.runforall.com/events/10k/york-10k

Events Fundraiser, Sara Cracknell said: “We’d love as many people as possible to wear one of our orange t-shirts and run for us on 4th August. The York 10k is a spectacular run and always a popular one. We’ll get in touch with runners when they sign up and choose to run for us. We can provide a fundraising pack which will include a running vest, sponsorship forms and information about Martin House. Runners will be joining a team making a huge difference to the care and support that we can provide.”


Martin House cares for children and young people with life-shortening conditions, as well as supporting families in bereavement. The majority of the hospice’s funding comes from fundraising, voluntary donations and legacies.
