St Cuthberts Hospice.
St Cuthberts Hospice has been providing care to the people of North Durham since 1988. They provide care to people with life limiting illness, and support to relatives. They do not charge for their services, instead, they rely on fundraising which includes the very popular Paws For A Cause dog walk.
The Gorilla Organisation.
Ever thought of adopting a gorilla! The Gorilla Organisation are an old favourite of ours, (Thanks to I), carrying on the work of Dian Fossey, and supported by the likes of Daryl Hannah,Leonardo DiCaprio and others. They look after the interests of gorillas in the wild. Did you know that there are less than 800 Mountain gorillas left, and less than 300 Cross River gorillas. You can support them by adopting a gorilla.
The Bumble Bee Conservation Trust.
