Hilton-Baird donates to Marwell

27/12/2011

When organising our Christmas event at Marwell Zoo, we were eager to put together an activity that both reflected our surroundings and promoted team work.

Marwell's education officer, Francesca Smith, kindly developed a fun and engaging activity for the Hilton-Baird team which required us to split up into teams of four and answer a range of question about the zoo's animals. The first team to send all of the correct answers via a smart phone were declared the winners.

The team thoroughly enjoyed the task that was set and by way of a thank you from the Hilton-Baird Group, Alex Hilton-Baird handed over a cheque of £400 to Marwell.

Alex said: "Marwell is a fantastic wildlife park dedicated to the conservation of biodiversity and other natural resources. Francesca and the staff made us feel very welcome throughout the day and I was more than delighted to make a donation to help such a wonderful charity continue its great work."
