World Land Trust (WLT) has presented a certificate signed by Sir David Attenborough to Anniversary Fundraiser Liam Bancroft who raised in excess of £1,000.

Liam climbed Mount Kilimanjaro with Ben Fox to raise funds for WLT in its 25th Anniversary year. A big thank you to them both.

Another Anniversary Fundraiser, Steven Ware is some £50 short of his £1,000 target.

Steve did an incredible 1,000 pushups in two hours on 25 June, and if anyone deserves a donation (and heartfelt congratulations), he does.

“Steve did an incredible 1,000 pushups in two hours and, if anyone deserves a donation (and heartfelt congratulations), he does.”

He said: “I completed 999 on the first attempt in early May, then it got worse and I was around 900 and finally 1,003 in the two hours (plus about 30,000 training pushups). I think next year I will choose something less strenuous!”

Please help Steve reach his £1,000 target. His fundraising page is

Meanwhile, Mike Downman, Head Keeper at Dartmoor Zoological Park is also determined to raise £1,000 for WLT. Along with others he is organising a challenge at the zoo; more details will follow.

We wish Mike and his team - and all our other Anniversary Fundraisers – the very best for their fundraising efforts.
