Make your steps count for the suffering animals in Asia.
Sunday 19 May, registration 10.30am 2.5 miles or 5 miles
Members of the London Animals Asia Support Group will be helping out at this event organised by the Animals Asia UK office. It would be wonderful to see many of you there walking for the animals. You will help raise some of those vital funds and will raise awareness by walking on the busy heath.
The walk is led by Simon Lee, the Superintendent of Hampstead Heath, who will guide us by some of the Heath’s most beautiful places including The Pergola, Heath House and Pitt’s Garden.
Every step you take and pound you raise helps us move a step closer to ending the horrific bear bile industry as well as changing hearts and minds towards cats and dogs in Asia, who are tortured and brutally slaughtered for the food and fur industries.
Registration £10 (free for children under 16) with an additional suggested minimum donation or sponsorship of £20. To register call 01579 347148 or email email@example.com

Our screening of “Cages of Shame” on Wednesday was a huge success and a big thank you is due to all who helped with the organisation and on the day: Hilary, Seb, Babs, Kay, John and Chloe and of course the lovely, lovely Peter Egan who very kindly volunteered to be our auctioneer and helped us raise £1620 with the auction alone.
donated a limited edition print of his beautiful Oliver Bear drawing which was won by actress Lesley Nicol of Downton Abbey fame for £500 (pictured below, photo credit: Richard Symonds) as well as his wonderful “Contemplation”.
As expected the film had everyone in tears, sad and happy tears. Supporter Sue Edwards summed it up perfectly on our Facebook page:
“Enjoyed meeting everyone again today ..Cages of Shame is fantastic. Yes of course it’s sad but you get to see from the inside how Animals Asia works. The terrible condition the bears are in when rescued. But you also see how the bears live now and the fantastic life Animals Asia has given them. Sad tears and Happy tears shed today.”
A big thank you also to fabulous Animals Asia friend and supporter Rula Lenska who is always there to support.
The “icing on the cake” was Jill of course – loved and adored by all. The film alone is superb and so very deserving of the award but to have Jill there to give us an update on the “New Year Rescue” bears and the situation in Vietnam and China in general made this event extra special.
We had a full house – full of very kind and generous supporters, old and new and just couldn’t have wished for a better day. Thank you to everyone who came and helped make this day as special as it was and of course to the Odeon Lounge for making this all possible in the first place by letting us use this amazing venue free of charge.
