Ivybridge Community College staff and students have brought in more than 120 empty confectionery tubs for a fundraising initiative organised through the College’s Key Stage 3 Office, raising essential funds for Dartmoor Zoological Park.
The tubs will now be collected from the College and recycled by local company, DCW, with all profits being donated to Dartmoor Zoo.
Coral Jonas, who is the Deputy CEO of Dartmoor Zoo and also a Governor at Ivybridge Community College said, “Thank you so much to Ivybridge Community College staff, students and parents, for taking part in our latest fundraiser for Dartmoor Zoo. By collecting the tubs you have helped Dartmoor Zoo with their £4,500 a day running costs, contributed to the development of new enclosures to take part in vital conservation programmes and you have given us the chance to continue more research into animal welfare. On top of that you have kept reusable plastic out of landfill.”
