Australian Bush Fires – help our Antipodean friends and their “critters” by supporting our Australia day fundraising event

On Friday 24th of January, Principal People will be raising money for WWF and The Red Cross equally through the Safety4Good programme to support the catastrophic bush fires in Australia, by celebrating Australia day (Sunday 26th).

Shockingly, statistics read that there have been over 28 fatalities, 3,000 homes destroyed and 7.3 million hectares have been burned and the fires show no signs of stopping. As well as this, it is estimated that over one billion animals have been affected nationwide across South East Australia.

Principal People will be holding a Cake Sale and a BBQ at their offices in Farnborough in an effort to raise money for the two charities with a hope to achieve £1,000. They are also asking their neighbouring offices to sponsor a Koala and are hoping that each office will be able to participate, which could total 45 adopted koalas!
