Eat, drink and be merry & help bears do the same

A fun evening with delicious food, raffle and a presentation by Amanda Hogan about work and life at Animals Asia’s China Bear Rescue Centre.  Amanda has worked at both, the Vietnam and China Bear Rescue Centre, and will get back just in time from a 6 week stint in China to give us the latest news on the resident bears.

The pub has a piano singalong every Wednesday and we’re all welcome to join in after our event.

Join our Walk for Freedom for 130 bears

After a 2 year break we are reviving the Wimbledon Common Walk for Freedom and this year it will coincide with the Stables Open Day, with lots of family fun and fun dog shows.  Come and join us for our walk and then stay on to enjoy a day on beautiful Wimbledon Common; your canine companions could even enter one or more of the dog shows.

Our walk will raise funds to help us adopt one of 130 bears on a bear farm in Nanning, Southern China, which is being converted into a sanctuary by Animals Asia.  The funds we raise for our bear will directly help with the conversion as this will provide her with all she needs for the first two years of being looked after by Animals Asia.

Be part of the change and walk with us for their FREEDOM

on Sunday 14 September at 11.00am (more details below)

You can book your place online or contact us for a booking form or further information using the form below.  Please note that the online booking incurs a small booking fee.

We would love you to raise as much sponsorship as possible too.  You can download a sponsorship form here or use the form below to request one.

If you haven’t met little Smudge yet, the last moon bear cub to be born in captivity on the Nanning farm, have a look at the little video here.  Luckily she will never know the tortures of bile extraction.

Wine God’s visit postponed

Due to unforeseen circumstances we unfortunately have to postpone our Dionysus event.  We hope to set a new date and possibly new venue very soon and will obviously announce it as soon as details are available.  It will probably be in October and most probably still in North or North West London.

In the meantime we have merchandise and awareness stalls and other events in the London area, so please keep an eye on our Facebook page if you are on Facebook or check our events page here regularly.

We look forward to meeting many of you this year, old and new supporters.

If you would like to get involved with our support group and help us raise funds and awareness in the London area, please do get in touch.  To make it easier, so that you don’t even have to go to another page, I have posted a contact form below :)
