Eileen Miller is a local lady to our village of Friskney and has literally dedicated hours upon hours and walked hundreds of miles, all for the animals residing at Lincolnshire Wildlife Park. In 2017 alone she raised nearly £4,000 cycling miles for our campaign TIGALIVE. This was to raise funds for our enclosure Bengal Gardens and offer these 11 Tigers a natural home full of enrichment; something they would have never received had we not have taken them in. It also helped with research and rehabilitation facilities in Bangladesh, to help get more tigers back into the wild.
During 2017 she faced her height fears and Power Glided from the cliffs in Italy to raise money. She has continually provided beautiful photo’s and cards to sell in our gift shop, as well as tombola’s & stalls for our visitors to enjoy. More recently for TIGALIVE, she has been all over the country cycling and walking the miles that she has been sponsored to do!
In 2018 she has raised over £5,000 for the park and for Nigel our Puma’s new sensory enclosure. She continually amazes us with her ideas and efforts to help our charity, creating prize draws, raffles and games for the children to get involved with while visiting the park.
Not only this but she has walked 547 miles (651 km), which is the equivalent of walking from our park in Lincolnshire to John O’ Groats in far Northern Scotland; all to raise more money for our charity and her love of Tigers. She will be helping to organise fund raising days at the park with lots of activities to get involved with, so keep an eye out on our events page and social media for updates!
