    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.

    Story

    Rosa was a treasured daughter and sister, a valued team member and a truly wonderful, friendly and inspirational person to all the staff at Hamerton Zoo Park and to everyone that knew her.

    She loved the Big Cats and was always trying to think of ways (alongside the other keepers) to make our visitors aware of the animals plight and that we needed to conserve our environment and raise funds for the Charity Organisation's we supported and to always have fun in doing so.

    We are planning to have an area in the Zoo where people can come and remember her and would like your support.

    When we reach the cost of our memorial, the excess donations will be contributed to Cheetah Conservation Fund, which was a Charity close to Rosa's heart.

    We appreciate all your kind words and memories of Rosa and Hamerton Zoo Park and we thank you for your support.

    Thank you from all at Hamerton Zoo Park x

      We would like to thank you all again for your support and generosity, we really do appreciate it. We thought we would update you - We’ve had the first rough drawing of Rosa’s memorial from the artist.  The Cheetahs will be made from horseshoes, as Rosa loved horses too. The artist's website is www.lcbsculpture.com Thank you again.

    I work at Hamerton Zoo Park and have done for nearly 2 years. When I met Rosa, I saw the love she had for her big cats & knew we'd have that on common, she also wanted to promote conservation & make everyone aware of it. She loved Hamerton Zoo & will be missed by everyone there.
