None of us could've imagined what was around the corner! The dreaded Covid 19! It is a worldwide crisis as we all know and everyone is stressed and uncertain about the future. All of us are affected, every single one! Please try to stay healthy!!
A safety net was thrown out to businesses from the Government but after enquiring we find we are not eligible for the Grants on offer which would have tied us over this period and given us the capital to start again when this nightmare is over!!
As we have a Zoo license exemption we have a duty of care to the animals which means volunteers still go in daily to care for them, despite being on lockdown and are classed as key workers.
This sad state of affairs means in real terms, without help, we simply couldn't afford to reopen.
Now I know this is a time of turmoil for all and you must take care of yourselves but if you are in a more favourable postion to donate we would be eternally grateful.
You made last year our BEST YEAR EVER! It's so sad we need your help again and thank you so much for the help you've already given!
STAY SAFE AND WELL, WE WILL GET THROUGH THIS!
OUR BUTTERFLIES WILL BE WAITING IN THE WINGS!
