It was a ‘Wild Ride’ last night as Sport met Art at DSWF Ambassadors launch

  • November 8, 2017

Double Olympic gold medal rower Alex Gregory, South African International cricketer Jacques Rudolph, England Rugby Football Unions official anthem singer, Laura Wright and rugby player Harry Rowland all wowed the audience at ‘The Art of Survival’ exhibition at Christies last night, pledging their support for David Shepherd Wildlife Foundation (DSWF).

The new ‘species’ ambassadors for DSWF joined their 6 new ‘art’ ambassadors who, since 4th November 2017 have been showcasing their work at the exhibition, raising funds for the charity. 50% of the sales from all their stunning artwork is going to DSWF to fund wildlife projects around the world.

Alex Gregory, announced he is now an ambassador for the DSWF Painted Dogs project in Zimbabwe and Jacques Rudolph for the Wildlife Guardians whose work DSWF supports globally, in their fight for wildlife, whilst Laura Wright and Harry Rowland have become ‘Community Ambassadors’ to showcase the engagement and education work that DSWF funds in Europe, Africa and Asia.  They are joining Joanna Lumley who became our Pangolin Ambassador last month.

Surrounded by Emily Lamb’s stunning circular artwork, Alex, Jacques, Laura and Harry also took part in an entertaining and engaging panel discussion and also used the opportunity to promote ‘Wild Ride’ an event taking place in July 2018 which will see them cycling through Zambia and Zimbabwe to raise vital funds for DSWF’s work. They will be making stops at a number of DSWF’s key project locations to see first-hand our work tackling wildlife crime and saving endangered wildlife.

Our thanks to them all, as well as to those who came and took part in the raffle and those that donated raffle prizes! We look forward to keeping you posted about ‘Wild Ride’ over the coming months.
