Members of #TeamBM swapped their hard hats for animal ears to run/walk 10k across a number of locations to raise money for our key client, Twycross Zoo.
Baker Mallett have been working for Twycross Zoo for several years. Many members of our staff love to visit site and it really does bring out the wonder in all of us when we do. During the COVID-19 Pandemic, Zoos have been hit particularly hard and whilst, as a business, we are endeavouring to support our client in any way we can, our staff also wanted to show their support and came up with a unique idea of running dressed as Twycross Zoo animals.
It was great to get out and take part in a rewarding fundraising challenge, and whilst the Warrington office were at their half way point recharging they had the opportunity to chat to some locals about the reasons for doing their run and they felt a real purpose for what they were doing, as well as receiving a kind donation from a member of the public.
We raised over £1,000 and later found out that £1,000 is equal to 4 days’ worth of fresh fruit and vegetables for the animals. #TeamBM really made a difference.
“As a partner of Baker Mallett, Twycross Zoo is really touched by their desire to not only help us with the services they provide but also to go that extra mile and fundraise in order to support us in our conservation mission. The sponsored 10k animal themed fun run was a great idea and we are very grateful to so many staff for getting involved and supporting us.”
