As we are getting busier every year with fundraising events, our own and stalls at other events, we really needed to find some new members willing and able to take on some of the organisational responsibilities and I am very happy to say that two of the newer members of our group have stepped up to the challenge.
We now have a joint coordinator who is working alongside myself to organise events and stalls. Selma Rauf has been a supporter of Animals Asia for many years and is already working on two events to take place later in the year.
Elle Haring has taken on a lot of the admin and is now updating our events page on the website and Facebook page, and is also working on another event so watch this space! 🙂
Other key members of our group are Yvonne Paul, Annie Walker, Mariachiara Butt, Hilary Golding, Amanda Lynch, Maja Kominko (also new and working on getting more talks for us in London), Ness Tee, Lucy Williams and Liz Floyd – in no particular order.
We are always happy to welcome new members, whether you have a lot of spare time, or only the odd day or couple of hours. We always need people to man stalls, make items for us to sell on stalls, organise events or help in any way you can think of.
You can contact us via our contacts page here or by email to email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org

Wishing you all a very happy New Year and most of all, may this be a year for the animals. More rescues, more awareness and less suffering!
Let us all do what we can, every little really does help, so never think there is nothing you can do when you’re overwhelmed by all the suffering you see. Together we can make a huge difference! UNTIL THE CRUELTY ENDS!
We have pledged to name one of the bears at the bear farm in Nanning, Southern China, which is being converted into a sanctuary by Animals Asia. We need to raise a total of £12,000 so will have additional fundraisers, events and stalls to reach this target. The money we raise will directly help with the conversion as it will give our bear all she needs for the first two years of being looked after by Animals Asia.
A total of 130 bears are currently at the farm, with some of the females possibly pregnant, and the conversion will cost approximately £3,000,000 so Animals Asia needs our help more now than ever before.
Please help us reach our target, be part of the change and let’s get those bears the sanctuary they so deserve.
Come to our events, visit our stalls or get actively involved with our group. We will need more volunteers to help with the fundraisers we have already planned and also people with talents, who can make things for us to sell on stalls or offer masterclasses etc. The fundraising possibilities really are endless, so please get involved, give up some of your precious spare time and help the bears get their freedom.
Animals Asia’s Peace by Piece campaign is unique, a never before attempted conversion of a bear farm into a sanctuary, and with all our help it will happen. Funds are vital, be part of the change and make a difference.
