Team Alpine will be taking on the challenge of climbing Africa's highest mountain, Kilimanjaro to raise money and awareness for Orangutan Appeal UK. We currently raise money for them through our coffee shop, gallery, holiday apartments and newly opened pizzeria in Betws-y-Coed, North Wales but wanted to "go big" this year and push ourselves!
All the money raised will really make a difference to Orangutan Appeal UK which is a non-profit organisation dedicated to the rescue, rehabilitation and release of orphaned, displaced and ex-captive orangutans. They strive to protect remaining populations of wild orangutans and their habitat by raising awareness and funding projects across Borneo.
Team Alpine is headed up by Jacha Potgieter, a conservation artist and photographer passionate about helping animals. He and his wife Gwyn run a palm oil free coffee shop in Betws-y-Coed, North Wales and have supported Ape Action Africa since Jacha first visited Mefou as a volunteer around 6 years ago. Joining Jacha and Gwyn will be cook and coffee shop manager Sue Jones and friend of the coffee shop and artist blacksmith Gerallt Evans.
