Protecting the environment with intelligence

Do you have what it takes to be an EIA fundraiser?

Many of our members have been tackling their own exciting fundraising challenges to help EIA, such as Isobel (12) and Mark (9) who embarked on a 50-mile hike along the River Perrett trail in Somerset, with their family and dog in tow.

Isobel, Mark and family take on the Perrett Trail raising money for EIA

“On our last day we walked from Haslebury Mill to Winyards Gap,” said proud mum Nicola. “This was our hardest day of walking as we were all tired, the way was poorly marked at times, and we went quite a long way out of our way! We did make it to the pub in time to order lunch and plenty to drink and to celebrate finishing the walk.

“This was a great experience – character building, I’m sure, and we managed to raise £450 for EIA and the tigers.”

Chris pulls pints for EIA at Latitude festival

Illaria and Chris have been pulling pints at the UK’s biggest festivals this summer including Glastonbury, Latitude and Reading! Together they have raised over £450 volunteering for EIA!

The streets of Kingswood, near Bristol, will be dramatically transformed this weekend via an artistic jungle theme, complete with a parade featuring a five-foot tiger designed by the local school, with all proceeds from the weekend donated to EIA! We look forward to sharing pictures of the event soon!

    I would be interested in hiring our local hall and screening your film, providing tea/coffee and biscuits as a fundraiser but have never screened anything so I don’t really know how to do it and I would not look at doing this until after Christmas as the hall is pretty well booked up until then and it is really between then and Easter that people are looking for an evening out.

    • Hi Rosemary,

      Thank you for your comments and your interest in hosting a screening, it would be a great idea! A big screen certainly does this documentary justice. I am more than happy to help you as much as I can, giving you details on the technical equipment you would need etc. Let me know what you had in mind, you can email me at sophiacheng@eia-international.org or call me on 0207 354 7980.

      I look forward to hearing from you,

      Sophia
