Do 30, for our 30th!

IOSF are turning 30 in November of this year, and for our 30th birthday we have a challenge for you! We would love it if you, our fantastic supporters, could help us by doing 30 of something, and raising money through this Just Giving campaign

You can bake 30 cakes, do 30 walks/jogs/runs or anything else that suits you! For example, Ben and Callum have set themselves the target of summiting 30 Munro’s in 2023, and you can follow their progress via our social media platforms, and this campaign page, throughout the year!

All proceeds will go into helping IOSF and our otter conservation projects around the world, including education, rehabilitation and research.

To help us, all you have to do is click the “Start fundraising” button on our Just Giving campaign page, and create your own fundraiser to share amongst people you know.

Together, let’s make our 30th year a great one!
