Orang appeal thanks!

We’re sending HUGE thanks to the fantastic employees of Dudley Building Society who have raised £286.31 towards our Orangutan Appeal.

The staff members carried out their own sponsored walk around the zoo site – following the 5k Take a Walk on the Wild Side trail, as well as hosting an orange cake day in work!

DZG Marketing Manager, Andrea Hales, said: “We’re so grateful to Dudley Building Society for their support and for the fab amount of money they raised towards our £800,000 appeal.

“They were keen to be part of our fundraising walk, but couldn’t make the actual event so we were happy to provide them with the official route, which they came and completed at a later date.

“And they even went the extra mile with the orange cake sale, which looked great fun!”

If your business would like to raise money to help us provide a new outdoor enclosure for our four critically endangered Bornean orangutans, then we’ve designed a fundraising pack full of ideas and helpful tips.

Dudley Building Society Support Customer Services Supervisor, Sarah Anslow, said: “As a local building society we are always keen to support the community we work and live in whenever possible.

“We very much enjoyed our day at the zoo and hope that the orangutans are very happy in their new home – we will be sure to visit them again when it’s been built!”
