BIG CAT COFFEE campaign

Big Cat Conservation in association with Help for Wildlife - Raising funds to help protect endangered big cats worldwide.

 

Working in support of the Cheetah Conservation Fund (CCF UK), Cheetah Outreach in South Africa and other big cat charities including LionAid, Lynx UK Trust, AfriCat UK, Wild Cats Conservation Alliance and Tiger Time.

BIG CAT COFFEE campaign.

Big Cat Coffee is a simple idea that will help raise funds to protect endangered species of big cats around the world, just by doing something most of us do every day!  So next time you are out searching for somewhere to enjoy your daily coffee, look for the 'Big Cat Coffee sticker' in cafés and coffee shop windows.  Then simply order your favourite style of coffee and make sure you ask the assistant to make it a 'Big Cat Coffee' complete with stencil of cat's paw.

All participating cafés and coffee shops have kindly agreed to support Big Cat Conservation, by donating up to 25p each time someone orders a 'Big Cat Coffee'.  Enjoy a BIG CAT COFFEE (or any other 'BIG CAT' drink!) or please add your donation to the charity tin by the till and help to raise funds to help protects endangered big cats.

 So don't just order your usual Cappuccino, Americano or Latte, make it a Cheetah-chino, an Amur-icano, or a Lion-latte and help protect big cats around the world. 

And, if your favourite café or coffee shop is not yet a part of the Big Cat Coffee Campaign, let them know you are a big cat supporter and ask them to contact us for their FREE Big Cat Coffee promotion pack.

The Big Cat Coffee Campaign is aiming to raise £1 million for big cat conservation.

Your donation will help support conservation projects such as the Anatolian Livestock Guarding Dog Project which protects farmers livestock from predation and helps prevent cheetah, leopard and other big cats being shot, trapped, poisoned and killed on farms in South Africa and other countries.

Events and fundraisers BIG CAT Conservation has been involved in:

Barclays Charity Winter Warmer Bi-athalon Event!

On Friday 22nd November 2013, Shelley Lozano of BIG CAT Conservation UK in association with Matt Hunt and Staff at Barclays Bank across the Southampton area organised a Charity Winter Warmer Bi-athalon event to raise funds on behalf of the cheetah conservation Fund and Muscular Dystrophy.  Organiser Matt Hunt and Barclays Staff ran 100 miles and cycled 150 miles!  A number of branches in  the Southampton area took part to help cover the distance on exercise bikes which were in various branches from 9.30am - 4.30pm and customers were welcome to join in too!  There was a 2 hour run at 10am and 2pm from the Southampton Above Bar branch through the parks in central Southampton and a number of colleagues joined in to cover the distance on the run.  Matt also encouraged staff in the branches to dress up as wild cats or animals to hopefully raise even more money.  A HUGE THANK YOU to everyone who got involved and donated or sponsored by popping in to any branch of Barclays Bank where they set up a special account for donations which was split between the two charities.  Thank you for making a difference! 

An amazing £489.41was raised which was matched by Barclays making a grand total of £978.82 going to the Cheetah Conservation Fund, Namibia.

BIG CAT Christmas Raffle

 Piccolo Mondo in association with BIG CAT Conservation did a BIG CAT Christmas raffle to win an endangered big cat toy. The Raffle was drawn on Saturday 14th December with the winner announced on the Wildlife80s show on Southampton's 103.9 Voicefm on Sunday 15th December.

An amazing total of £60 was raised from the raffle which will go to Cheetah Outreach in South Africa who are working to help mitigate human-wildlife conflict to help cheetah conservation there.

Predators such as cheetah or leopard often come into conflict with farmers where they risk being shot, trapped, poisoned or killed and Cheetah Outreach are working with farmers to reduce this conflict with their educational programmes, Anatolian Livestock Guarding Dog project and collaring and releasing cheetahs back into the wild.  More info can be found at www.cheetah.co.za
