Local lad, 8 year old Brogan loves all animals & wants to become a zoo keeper when he’s bigger! He got very upset hearing of the zoos struggle due to covid-19 and decided he had to help as much as he couldf – so he came up with the idea of asking friends and family to sponsor him to do a cycle ride. On the 30th of May Brogan had special permission to cylce from Afon Conwy to the zoo and back – which he did in blistering heat in 3 hours!

When the zoo closed their gates on March 22nd due to covid-19 it was the worst crisis the zoo has faced in its 57 year history, it has 140 species to care for & running costs at £30,000 per week. As the Welsh Government has decided not to provide the emergency fund scheme that has been offered to zoos & aquariums in England, the zoo is in desperate needs of funds to keep going.
Please help Brogan raise funds for this lovely little zoo by going to his Just Giving page set up by his mum Hayley Mcdonagh – https://bit.ly/3770I6L
Brogan is really close to his target now – with £375 raised – so help him reach hus target of £500 and help ave our wonderful local zoo!
