To raise much needed funds for the ALERT Education Centre (AEC), Antelope Park lion and community volunteers have participated in a trivia night. As well as raising money, the event proved to be the ideal way for the volunteers to get to know each other socially. Healthy competition reigned, as there were prizes and of course the honour of being Antelope Park Trivia Champion at stake.
Congratulations to the winners, Team Uchafa, who were each awarded a lion activity of their choice, and especially to Research Intern Lorna; the overall Trivia Queen. Lorna generously donated her prize of a personalised photo slideshow of her activity to fellow team mate Erika.
The AEC costs around $1,250 (approximately £800) per month and is run entirely on donations. The $100 raised by the volunteers will cover transport costs for one week, enabling the students to be collected from their school and returned again after each class.
Congratulations to Team Uchafa and thank you to all who participated in this fundraising event.
If you would like to help the AEC continue to offer Conservation Education to the children of Gweru, please make a donation here and state that it is to be used for the ALERT Education Centre. You support is greatly appreciated.
