Critically urgent crane appeal

This is a very urgent appeal for help. The ZCTF are in desperate need of donations to try and raise funds for a Bonfiglioli truck mounted crane capable of lifting 16 tons. We have located a second hand crane, which will cost us £20 000 to have fitted to our truck. This is including the PTO pump, which is needed to operate the crane.

BUSH-BASH (Rocking For Wildlife!)

We would like to draw your attention to a musical event called Bush-Bash (Rocking For Wildlife!) on Saturday 26th May 2012. This event is being held, in aid of the ZCTF, to help towards raising some funds for the crane. If you are in or around the London or Surrey area and are looking for something to do, please come along to the event, to support this cause, and help us raise some funds. You can find out more about Bush-Bash and get tickets online from:


The ZCTF often have to take truck loads of food out to starving animals and a lot of our invaluable time is wasted while we are trying to raise funds, or trying to find someone to donate the use of a truck. The time wasted sadly results in animals dying. Thanks to an international donor, we have been fortunate enough to purchase a truck (images below), but we desperately need a crane to load and offload it. It is often very difficult and expensive to find people who can help with loading and offloading, so a crane would save us a lot of money, time, and most importantly, save animal's lives, in the long run.

The ZCTF also do game relocations and we have the same problem with loading animals onto the truck. With a crane, it would be a simple matter of putting the animals into a container, and then loading the container onto the truck with a crane – the same again with offloading. At the moment, we are unable to use the truck for game relocations because it is impossible to lift a container onto the truck without a crane. Many animals are dying unnecessarily, so we are asking you, members of the public to please come forward and help the ZCTF at this critical time.

Make a donation today. Any amount, no matter how big or small, will be very gratefully received.
