Support the work of British Divers Marine Life Rescue to help continue the rescue, release and rehabilitation work marine wildlife.

Fundraising is hugely important to BDMLR in order for us to continue our rescue work. Equipment and training can be very costly and so we are grateful to anyone who wishes to help fundraise for us!

Here are some of our fundraisers that you can get involved with:

Christmas Raffle 2020

Our Christmas raffle is all online this year due to Covid-19. Please take a look at the wonderful prizes that have been donated and purchase tickets below:

Sponsored Humpback Whale Event 2020

This event is running all year and is great for anyone up for a challenge! Run, walk, cycle or swim 40, 75 or 100 miles to help raise money for support BDMLR’s work especially with whales. This event is open to children and adults and can be done as a group or an individual.

If you successfully raise over £100 for the charity, we will send you a reward of either a BDMLR fleece hat, t-shirt or humpback whale soft toy.

Plan a Quiz or Party!

Looking to run a quiz, party or something similar in your local area? Why not help raise some funds for BDMLR too!

Just let us know what you are organising and when as we may be able to help advertise!

Any other ideas?

You can fund raise anyway you like. Conventionally supporters have run marathons, walked coastal paths and climbed mountains for sponsorship. Others have helped, or even organised, stands are various countrywide events or stood outside supermarkets with a collection bucket.

If you have an idea for fundraising then we’d love to hear it – We will always try and support you wherever we can!
