The Welsh Mountain Zoo is one of the Ten Top attractions in North Wales with over 500 animals, some of which are the most endangered in the world. With thousands of visitors every year our high profile means we are contacted by a significant number of organisations seeking free entry tickets for prizes for charity raffles and auctions.
The Welsh Mountain Zoo – National Zoological Society of Wales is a registered charity itself. Therefore we must be careful to monitor the number of free entry tickets that are issued to other organisations for fundraising events that do not directly benefit the Zoo or our charitable mission.
As a major visitor attraction situated in North Wales, we want to support our local community as much as we possibly can.
In order to manage the process of donating free tickets to other organisations the following criteria has been set in place:
- Tickets will be issued to organisations or other registered charities whose work clearly supports or relates to our own mission, (to assist in conserving biodiversity worldwide), or to schools and community groups in Wales and in LL & CH postcodes
- We will only donate tickets directly to organisations and charities rather than third parties, i.e. not to those holding events on behalf of other nominated charities or causes
- Only one set of tickets will be allocated to successful organisations in any twelve month period
We will consider applications four times a year on 31st March, 30th June, 30th September and 31st December and a limited number will be issued.
All applications will be considered using the above criteria and successful applicants will be notified by post:
