How Can I Get Involved?
On our Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/events/692197928223752/ you will find the checklist to see all of our amazing animals.
What’s it for?
Well, during the Corona-Virus pandemic it has proved very difficult for lots of people, including the beloved Chester Zoo. During this time they haven’t been able to open and so funding the zoo is really tricky when you don’t have any guests coming along and buying tickets! That’s why the people of the Heaton’s have come together to try to help Chester Zoo during a difficult time! We have set up a Just giving page where all proceeds go directly to Chester Zoo to help them: https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/4-heatons-zoo
Why Chester Zoo?
Chester Zoo is not only a Zoo for the public to enjoy the beautiful animals, it is also a breeding programme. It helps animals who face extinction due to environmental changes, poachers and much more. There is multiple projects going on right now such as the Primate Breeding and Management, Save the Lemurs project, Pine Marten Recovery Project and many more. The work Chester Zoo do for the conservation of the animal kingdom is truly remarkable. They do so much for the world we live in… now its time to do something for them!!
Any donations will be truly appreciated: https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/4-heatons-zoo
How is Stuarts Involved?
Clare, Colin and Olivia all live in the Heaton’s and so they are joining in – our road has been tasked with turning our homes in to Elephants! We have been working hard on creating our Elephant displays and we will be sharing pictures of our display as well as the rest of the streets displays too!
