WFN’s 25th Anniversary Hope Gala

Date: 14th November 2018
Time: 7:00 pm

We are excited to announce that we are holding a fundraising Gala at the Natural History Museum on Wednesday 14th November 2018 to celebrate our winners’ achievements over the past 25 years, and to generate vital support for our conservation programmes as we look to the future.

We are honoured to have our Trustee, Sir David Attenborough, in attendance, along with our Anniversary Partner, The Corcoran Foundation. The evening will be a celebration of wildlife and conservation successes, compered by Kate Humble, and attended by Whitley Award winners, for which Fashion for Conservation is creating a spectacular show. We hope, with your invaluable support, to reach our target of raising £1m in additional conservation funding in 2018.

Our Silent Auction has now launched! With amazing experiences and one-of-a-kind pieces available, all funds raised will help us reach our target of raising £1m in conservation funding for our 25th Anniversary Fund:
