I am excited about this fundraiser...!

When I first heard that Crowdfunder had created a brand new, absolutely free fundraising platform I knew immediately that I had to start a fundraiser for a local Cornish organisation that has been very close to my heart for a very long time; Wild Futures. Many of you might know it as The Monkey Sanctuary. 

From the moment I started to volunteer there years ago, it was clear that this charity consisted of the most kind-hearted and hard-working people I have ever met and their passion and loyalty to the primates they work so tirelessly for is incredible. 

Their work

Every donation, big or small, will go directly to the fantastic work that Wild Futures does, whether you donate £1 or £100 you can rest assured that every penny will be put to good use.

This amazing charity works in several areas and needs your help to protect primates in the UK. They rescue monkeys caught in the awful conditions of the UK pet trade, take wonderful care of the primates at the sanctuary every day and battle relentlessly for a ban on the cruel and horrible practice of keeping primates as pets. They desperately need funds to expand so they can take in more primates in need of their help and expertise.

About the charity. 

Wild Futures began life in 1964 as The Monkey Sanctuary; a centre which offered refuge to woolly monkeys rescued from the pet trade and has now grown into a world leader in primate rescue, receiving accreditation from the Global Federation of Animal Sanctuaries (GFAS).

Their high welfare standards and innovative territory design allow the monkeys to live in close-to-natural colonies. To date, over 150 monkeys have been cared for at the sanctuary.

A final word.

I know from first-hand experience that all the money donated really does go towards the work amazing this charity does rather than to admin fees. What's more, now with Crowdfunder's fundraising platform there are no fees when you donate so you can be confident that 100% of your donation will be directly helping the primates.
