Event description
Do you love tigers? Fancy dressing up as one? If you do then come join us as we walk 9 miles from Lion Yard out to Shepreth Wildlife Park!

About this Event

Last year our inaugural Walk For Tigers was hugely successful raising £2000 for captive tiger welfare in Thailand. This year we're doing it all again, hopefully bigger and better.

WHAT'S THE CAUSE?

Walk For Tigers is run by the charity 'For Tigers'. We operate in Thailand where we improve welfare for captive tigers throughout the country. The 'tiger selfie' craze is a growing one, but what many people don't realise is that the tigers are generally living in substandard conditions. Through education, research and direct aid to these facilities we are improving the living conditions of captive tigers.

Funds raised from this specific event will go to buying materials to improve and upgrade 20 tiger cages for the confiscated tigers from Tiger Temple. Currently these cages have a small water bath, concrete-flooring and a low concrete platform. We will be building higher wooden platforms and large sandpits in each of these cages to provide the tigers with more natural substrates to interact with.

WHEN AND WHERE

This year on Sunday 4th August, the walk starts in Lion Yard with all participants meeting between 8 - 9am for registration before heading out before 10am. The end point is a short 9 miles to Shepreth Wildlife Park where they will be celebrating Tiger Day. We aim to arrive by 2pm just in time for the tiger feeding of the park's two stunning Sumatran tigresses, Ratna and Kelabu, plus you'll get to visit the rest of the zoo too!!!

FOR THE WALKERS

For everyone who wishes to join us on this walk, we ask that you raise £50 in sponsorship funds to go to our cause. You can print out the sponsor form in the photos below.

You will also need to dress up in your best tiger outfit! Our staff will be sweating it out in a tiger onesie so if this is the way you want to go too ... we'll welcome it! We'll even give out some prizes for the Best Dressed Tiger!

Bring water, and, depending on the weather - rain gear or sunscreen! We will have a support vehicle with us at all times so you won't need to carry all of this with you!

DONATIONS

If you can't join us on the walk but still wish to help out, we have a number of online sponsorship fundraisers you can donate to, or simply donate directly to: donate@fortigers.org

For more info please don't hesitate to drop us a message on our Facebook page - For Tigers or contact the organiser (Tanya) directly at tanya@fortigers.org

Thanks for your support! Every little helps
