We have fantastic news from the A & C team, As you may already know we are donating money from a selection of our services since Colchester Zoo sadly needed to close its doors due to lock down

  Last month, even though working with reduced staff and needing to limit our services due to lock down restrictions  We are very pleased to say our first month of donations  has reached £156 towards our local zoo!!!

Our children have also very much enjoyed creating zoo themed activities  for the children in our home villages during this difficult time

We are very pleased to have received this lovely email from Colchester Zoo !!


Dear Amy & the Allen & Clarke family!

Thank you for your email and for all your efforts in raising funds for Colchester Zoo to help us survive this crisis.

We are ever so grateful for your donation and all the hard work you have put into raising funds. The money you are donating will help us to continue to provide our animals with the highest standard of care.

It seems like an eternity since we closed our doors to the public and we are going to find it hard, as many will, to survive without regular income for what might be a long period of time. We are aware that there are many worthy organisations who deserve help and funding at this particular time so we are very grateful to you for your kind generosity.


Your support is much appreciated during this very difficult time we are facing. We cannot express strongly enough how much we appreciate your concern for Colchester Zoo. Through our dedicated team we continue to ensure all of our animals are well cared for and that we will be ready to reopen as soon as this dreadful situation has passed.


The activities that you have put together as a family for the community to enjoy whilst also raising vital funds for us here at Colchester Zoo look fantastic – we hope that many have enjoyed participating in the scavenger hunt! It was lovely to see the photos, thank you so much for sharing these with us.


We understand and appreciate the difficulties you too are facing as a family business so once again, on behalf of all the staff and animals at the zoo, thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your invaluable continued support.


Please look after yourselves and stay safe.

Best wishes,

Melissa Dench (nee Fitch)
