4 August is Tiger Day, where visitors will find all sorts of tiger-themed fun and games to take part in including face and nail painting, raffles, tiger tombolas, auctions and arts & crafts, and don’t forget to pick up a slice of tiger cake.
The Young Actors Company will be giving a performance of Tigers in the Wild, then there’s Mr Bean’s Magic Show and the jungle bouncy castle too. Take part in an extra special pass the parcel around the tiger enclosure, then watch with bated breath as Cambridge United’s Josh Coulson and Ian Miller will be braving the tiger den to hide Amba’s meat!
Tiger Day, which is in its ninth consecutive year, has so far helped to raise over £40,000 in aid of the tiger conservation charities 21st Century Tiger and Wildlife Vets International.
Shepreth’s Rebecca Willers comments: “We are always overwhelmed with the incredible success this event affords each year, and we are very grateful to the super people who give up their day to work tirelessly raising funds and keeping the fun in motion. We are amazed to see the high levels of visitors we receive on Tiger Day, proving that the tigers here are a really popular attraction and people really do care about their plight in the wild.
We hope that Tiger Day 2014 will be just as successful, and we can raise the much-needed funds to prevent this beautiful animal ever becoming extinct in the wild.”
And because animals close to home need our help too, on 25 August Shepreth hosts Hedgehog Day, featuring games and activities to help raise funds and awareness for their Hedgehog Hospital. Both events start at noon.
