Reaseheath Conservation Society go Orange for Orangutans

Go Orange 2This October the Reaseheath Conservation Society took part in raising money for Chester Zoos charity campaign Act for Wildlife: Go Orange for Orangutans.

The society held two pub quiz nights in the student bar on the 27th October and 10th November, both events were a huge success with the students, society and bar staff. Members of the Conservation Society helped with the creation of decorations and advertising of these events, as well as helping to run the event. Money vouchers were presented to the winning teams on each night which were to be spent at the student bar.

Go Orange 3Altogether the Conservation Society managed to raise £202.52 for Go Orange which will go towards planting and protecting 20 trees in the Borneo Rainforest. The money was donated to the Chester Zoo development team by hand and was given a personal thank you letter, certificate and donation picture opportunity around the Orangutan enclosure at Chester Zoo.
