Melbourne Cup Day has traditionally been a fun day where Australians from all walks of life get together with friends, have a few drinks and a bet on the races.
It’s now time to turn it on its head!
It is our vision to keep having fun, in fact as much as possible. But, instead of supporting an industry that exploits the animals it relies upon to exist, let it be a day we celebrate animals and say ‘Nup to the Cup!
We’re asking people who really care about animals (not just horses) to use this day to remember and respect the important role that all animals play in our world. You could host your own Nup to the Cup event and raise much needed funds for one of the many organisations who are doing fabulous work being a voice for animals.
Check out our other pages for useful tips on hosting your own event and register it with us so we can help you promote the occasion. Or, let someone else do the work and just go along. Click here to find a Nup to the Cup event near you.
If you’re stuck at work, you could host a Nup to the Cup in the workplace. We’ve come up with a list of ideas and tips to make it a fun time for all of your collegues here.
If you would like a helping hand to get started and prefer have a chat with one of our volunteers, please drop us a line to [email protected] and we’ll be in touch.
