A big part of what Quernus means to me is being able to give something back to help as many beings (both two legged and four legged) as possible. In the early years of Quernus, I mainly did this by donating wee creatures to be raffled off for specific events, but in recent years, I have done my own raffles, and for the online ticket events, I've donated all ticket sales to charities nominated by the ticket holders for each event.
Here's a list of all the donations that have been made I started fund-raising in my own right - I want to say a huge thank you to everyone who has taken part in these events, because it is down to you that we've been able to raise so much money for so many worthwhile causes, and continue to do so!
