Aaron & Partners raises money for Chester Zoo’s Go Orange for Orangutans campaign
20th November, 2014
Leading Chester law firm Aaron & Partners has once again supported Chester Zoo by fundraising for the zoo’s ‘Go Orange for Orangutans’ campaign during October.
Aaron & Partners asked firms and individuals to help build a ‘virtual’ tree to help the zoo reach its target of £15,000 and were delighted with the response. The law firm raised over £530, enough to plant 53 saplings in the Borneo rain forest.
Staff at Aaron & Partners added to the funds, raising over £120 by having a Go Orange Cake Bake and an Orange dress down day.
On hearing Aaron & Partners were planning to support Chester Zoo’s campaign for a second year, development manager, Melanie Cowieson, said: “It is fantastic to have Aaron & Partners on board for our 2014 Go Orange for Orangutans campaign. They were so helpful to us last year and we were delighted when they offered to get behind us with such enthusiasm again. It is a real boost to our fundraising effort.
“Aaron & Partners is a well respected firm so we have our fingers tightly crossed that as many companies as possible will help them breathe life into their fabulous ‘virtual’ forest.”
Each sapling will cost just £10 to plant and maintain and will help rebuild the orangutan’s natural habitat.

Last year’s highly successful campaign enabled Aaron & Partners to raise enough money to buy two specialist cameras which are now installed in the forests of Sabah, Borneo, and are an invaluable tool for conservationists monitoring the behaviour of orangutans in the wild.
