Fundraising Events

Looking for a challenge to raise money for a chosen charity or funds to support conservation projects at DZG? There are many opportunities to hold your fund-raising event with us.

From abseiling down the castle, a sponsored walk around the zoo or being brave enough to stay overnight in one of Britain’s most haunted locations we can work together in partnership to assist with your fund-raising goals. Unfortunately we cannot support individuals for fund-raising events, only groups of a minimum 50 people and the fund-raising must be related to a registered charity that relates to our own mission.

Communities & Schools

‘One of DZG’s supporters, Charlotte Eggington of Great Barr has raised more than £350 for the Zoo from many projects including the sale of friendship braceletsGet your school or community group involved to support conservation. Fundraising is a great way to bring people of all ages together to raise money and awareness for a good cause. All the money raised goes back into animal welfare and conservation projects here at the zoo.
