Generous supporters – with the backing of The Big Give Christmas Appeal – have just raised more than £15,000, exceeding the target to put in a pond at Wolf Fields. But there’s a chance to do more to make this a real wildlife ‘oasis’ for West London.
‘You did it!’ said CEO Andy Atkins, just after hearing the news. ‘Thanks to all our supporters and the Big Give Christmas Appeal, we can now build a pond at our Wolf Fields urban nature reserve. Our plan is to make a better home for hard pressed amphibians and enable more local children to have a great experience of nature.
‘We send a big “thank you” from all of us at A Rocha UK. The Challenge is now open until 12pm (midday) on Tuesday 6th December – so there’s still time to donate to our work.’
Supporters taking part in the campaign have been making twice the splash with every pound they donated. From 29th November-2nd December, The Big Give Christmas Challenge matched their gifts – at no extra cost. After being matched, the total counted up today (2nd December) was £15,630. Target was £14,000.Read more...
