Announcing our chosen charity – the Born Free Foundation
Last month we held a poll on social media to choose our nominated charity for the year. It was a close-run competition, and we’re now delighted to announce the winner.
The Born Free Foundation is a family-run charity based here in West Sussex, but its influence spreads all over the globe. Born Free was founded in 1984 by the actors Bill Travers and Virginia McKenna, and works to prevent animal suffering, protect threatened species and keep wildlife in the wild.
Born Free runs many high-profile initiatives, including the ‘Big Cat’ campaign that rescues individual lions, tigers and leopards from tiny cages around the world and gives them lifetime care at sanctuaries, funds major lion and tiger conservation projects and fights hunting big cats for ‘sport’.
We’re delighted to be supporting this brilliant cause, and will be raising funds over the next twelve months in a variety of ways.

Meanwhile, DW Nye employee Simon Parker completed the London to Brighton bike ride last month, in aid of the British Heart Foundation. The ride is 54-miles long, beginning in Clapham, south London, and ending in Madeira Drive, Brighton. Congratulations, Simon, for completing this testing challenge and raising cash for a great cause.
