Film Screening cancelled

I just thought I’d better let you all know that our film screening this Saturday had to be cancelled due to a lack of confirmed bookings.  It’s a shame as it would have raised much needed funds but we will re-schedule and obviously post details as soon as we have a new date.

In the meantime you may like to watch this little video of Iris, one of the bears whose rescue is featured in “Cages of Shame”. As you can see she is now a very happy, playful and carefree bear.

Film screening in aid of two fabulous charities

There are still tickets left for our event at the Odeon Lounge Bayswater. We are getting this amazing luxury cinema  free of charge again for our upcoming film morning on Saturday 5th April.

This time we’re showing two award winning films, “Cages of Shame” which follows the rescue of 10 bears from the last bear bile farm in Shandong Province and “Up in Smoke” which shows how rain forests can be saved by replacing the traditional slash and burn method, thus helping local communities as well as local wildlife.

Proceeds from this event will be split between Animals Asia and the Inga Foundation.

Tickets can be booked online or you can email me at  We have reduced the cost to £25 to make up for the early start :)  A really good price for 2 films and especially good as it’s in such a fabulous theatre.

Seats are limited, so book now to avoid disappointment.

All details are on the poster below, but please feel free to contact us for any further information you may need.

Merry Christmas!

I just wanted to wish you all a very merry Christmas and a happy New Year.

We had a great fundraising year in London for Animals Asia and already have a lot planned for 2014, so keep an eye on our “Upcoming Events” page and our Facebook page, and don’t forget that we are always happy to welcome new members, no matter how much or how little time you can spare.

These are some photos I took at the Vietnam Bear Rescue Centre in October – the bears are wishing you a happy Christmas too and are very grateful for your support :)
