Brave DZG Keeper Adam Wrench took a leap of faith and raised more than £800 for our Orangutan Appeal.
The 27 year-old farm keeper plummeted 10,000ft through the air during a sponsored skydive last week, as he raised money towards our £800,000 target to build a separate outdoor enclosure for our four orangutans – Jorong, Benji, Jazz and Sprout.
Adam, who has worked at DZG for the last three years, said: “It was an amazing experience and was really exhilarating.
“I’m so glad I did it and I’m delighted with the amount of money I raised for such a worthy appeal, which exceeded my original target.”
Through sponsorship, Adam raised £370, which we’ve boosted by adding the sales of nectar from Lorikeet Lookout from the day of his dive.
And there’s still time to add to Adam’s total by CLICKING HERE and donating to his Justgiving page.
Zoo Director Derek Grove, said: “We’re all incredibly proud of Adam and his fundraising feat.
“Our staff are always willing to go the extra mile for their animals and Adam certainly did that and we’re pleased to boost his sponsorship from the £446 worth of lorikeet nectar sales from the day.
“We hope our supporters will be inspired by his efforts and donate to the cause.”
