22q At The Zoo 2016

22nd May 2016

Image: sarah_goodyear_1.jpg82179624_medium.pngAs you were probably aware on Sunday 22nd May 2016 Max Appeal helped host a 22q at the Zoo worldwide day.
We held the event at 9 zoo's across the UK. Bristol, Camperdown, Chester, Dublin, Paradise, Marwell, Newquay, Twycross & Yorkshire.

Max Appeal helps subsidise costs to families at a cost of 1,250 for the zoo day. We hope that you think that it's worth the money and you get lots of enjoyment, fun and a chance to meet up with other 22q families. We hope that other visitors to the zoo on the day saw the red sea of 22q at the zoo t-shirts, and managed to raise awareness for 22q.
This year, 253 tickets were ordered, that's 58 families which included 62 children and adults affected by 22q.

It looks like you all had lots of fun.

Maxi bear (Max Appeal mascot) made his first appearance and seemed to go down a treat judging by the way he was mobbed by very happy children at Chester zoo!

London Zoo 2011This heralded the first of the 22q At The Zoo global awareness days.

It has to be said that initially most people were a little tentative.. after all, anyone can go to the zoo any day they choose!

But this has proven to be a full on 'hit' with families around the world.
