The Big Give Christmas Challenge 2022
One donation, twice the impact!
We are taking part in The Big Give Christmas Challenge 2022 to raise vital funds for our Save Our Sanctuary appeal. The Big Give Christmas Challenge is a matched funding campaign where any donation that you make could be doubled for one week only, between 29th November and 6th of December. With thanks to some amazing pledges we’ve received, and champion funding from The Reed Foundation, we have a total of £5,000 in matched funds! That means that we can raise a total of £10,000 in just one week as any donation made (up to £5,000) will be doubled from the matched funds pot. That means that £10 becomes £20, £20 becomes £40, £50 becomes £100 – at no extra cost to you!
Here’s why we must raise £10,000 in The Big Give Christmas Challenge this year…
The last few years have been really tough. The impact of the Covid-19 pandemic along with the emerging cost of living crisis and increasing costs means that we are on the brink of closure.
Despite our incredible fundraising efforts, and the generosity of all our wonderful supporters over the last few years, the Covid-19 pandemic forced us into spending our reserves. Now with the cost of caring for the monkeys increasing, our monthly outgoings are close to £50,000 a month and we are not raising enough to cover that.
With our reserves depleted, our future is in danger. If things don’t change, we cannot guarantee our rescued monkeys’ futures with us at the Sanctuary.
Each rescued primate has their own distinct character and personality. As pets, many were left alone in tiny, barren cages, some were even physically abused. Wild Futures offers them a chance to heal and socialise with others of their own kind, and experience a natural environment to explore, forage, play and climb trees in.
We will do everything we can to save our sanctuary and the monkeys’ home but we cannot do this alone, so we desperately need your help.
