RHES (Reaseheath Herpetological and Entomological Society) took the leap of faith organised by Reaseheath’s own Adventure Sports students in aid of North Wales Reptile and Raptor Sanctuary (NWRR). One of RHES’s aims is to support a related charity through their work. This year they are supporting NWRR and have already raised some money during the lambing weekends at the zoo.
The leap of faith took some serious courage! RHES members were challenged to climb the 45ft pole, clamber on to a platform and then leap into the air to hit a target without losing their nerve. The participating students who took the leap collected sponsorship and raised an incredible total of £273.83.
Many supporters turned out to cheer the group on along with the support and encouragement from the Adventure Sports students who were holding the ropes in which their harnesses were attached to. The brave fundraisers will be visiting NWRR later this month to present the charity with the money they have raised. The funds raised will help the charity do the amazing work they have been doing rescuing, rehabilitating and rehoming/releasing injured and neglected reptiles and birds of prey.
Well done to RHES and many thanks to the Adventure Sports students for their support.
