This event is a charity fund raiser and Braunston working mans club have waived their booking fee for a one hundred pound donation to the Air ambulance, afetr that and any other costs that need to be covered, the remaining proceeds will be divided between Tropiquaria and Chester zoo.
The Zoos have been badly affected by the lockdowns and suffered greatly through lack of funds. With no income from visitors and ongoing running costs, some if not all have all struggled just to keep going. The BLA and its membership have a proud history of supporting conservation and were able to send donations during the lock down periods to both Tropiquaria and Chester zoo.
Due to the unusal circumstances the country has faced, this will be our first event in over a year. We would like this event to be more of a social get together and less structured than previous events. with no planned talks or lectures taking place.
