Last week saw the Bristol Zoo Gardens Charity Gala Dinner take place, which raised a fantastic £15,000 for their conservation work with penguins in South Africa. Blom was more than happy to donate them with a framed aerial photograph of the zoo site in Bristol, and we were delighted to hear it raised £200 as part of a silent auction lot.
Blom has a long-standing relationship with Bristol Zoo; every year a group of staff from our UK office volunteer a day our of their busy schedules to help out at the great Wild Place attraction. Tasks range from laying paths, planting mazes and developing areas of play equipment. It’s a fun day out for the staff as well as providing a much-needed service to what is a very worthy cause.
