Slater Investments announces its support of The Aspinall Foundation

The John Aspinall Foundation is a British charity (Registered Charity 326576) which works to promote wildlife conservation. It was set up by professional gambler and zoo owner John Aspinall in 1984 and runs the two zoos he set up, Port Lympne Zoo and Howletts Wild Animal Park in Kent, in addition to well-established projects overseas. Their main spheres of conservation-based activity include captive breeding, education, ecosystem management, local community education projects, capacity building, habitat surveys and the rehabilitation of confiscated wild animals. The Foundation also contributes to conservation projects run by other organisations.  The Ormeley Dinner is a fundraising event that was held on June 6th in aid of the Aspinall Foundation, the Ecology Trust and the Rainforest Fund.

 

Lucinda Watson, head of marketing at Slater Investments, commented "The work that the Aspinall Foundation does around the world is incredibly important, especially now as more and more animal species are becoming endangered through loss of natural habitat, poaching and pollution. Through their various projects the foundation works to protect a huge range of species, and we are very pleased to be supporting them."

 

A spokesman for The Aspinall Foundation said: "The Aspinall Foundation extends its thanks to Slater Investments for its generosity, and to all the other individuals and organisations who contributed so much to the success of this year's Ormeley Dinner".
