We have no idea how much support to expect and would love to send as much money as we can; every £2 entry buys 2kg of food and will help to keep these dogs alive and well.

The Cause

We came across Yulia and her gorgeous Wire Fox Terrier Bambi, on Instagram. They are outside Kyiv, Ukraine, living through daily shelling, blackouts and the fear and uncertainty of the devastating war in Ukraine.

In spite of all of this, Yulia is spending any time she can raising money and making fortnightly visits to her local Gostamel Dog Shelter to deliver food and necessities to the 700+ dogs and cats they have taken in over the course of the war.

Having followed Bambi and Yulia's updates on Instagram, we felt compelled to do at least something to help. So we contacted some of our favourite businesses who have all kindly donated the following prizes to help raise some money.

Every penny raised will go to Yulia who will be visiting the shelter again in mid-February. Each £1 raised will buy roughly 1 kilo of food, so remember even the smallest donation helps, and we are hoping to raise as much as possible to buy as much food as possible.*
