The Durrell Challenge 2016 with Henry Cavill


We are today delighted to share with you news of a very special event to take place in Henry’s home island of Jersey.

Henry and Durrell are today launching The Durrell Challenge 2016 with Henry Cavill, a fun filled day combining a 13k race with entertainment at Durrell Wildlife Park… all of which, of course, helping to raise funds for Durrell’s vital conservation work.

In his role as Durrell’s Ambassador, Henry Cavill will also be spending the day at Durrell.

    This is, as always, very interesting – a great initiative – and excellent news. I think it would be useful if you could have your own Twitter, Facebook and Instagram accounts – it would be even easier for us (and Henry!) to share your updates then & to help you raise awareness, gain even more followers and additional supporters for these fabulous charitable endeavours. Keep up the good work!

    Can’t travel to England for the race but surely can support by adopting. Great effort! Love seeing him use his celebrity for good. Thank you.

    Henry’s promo YouTube video for this event and his car raffle is classified as “unlisted”; I would like to share it and help get the word out. Would you please change the classification? Thank you and best of luck to Durrell!

    Fantastic news Henry I’m so happy for you and Durrell wildlife park I went there last month, it was one of the places that I visited when I was on holiday in the UK. I went to London and then I went to Jersey and the first place I went to when I was in Jersey was Durrell it’s absolutely fantastic, it’s very beautiful there and hopefully one day I will be able to go back again. I wish you the best of luck with your campaign I am positive that it will be a smashing success!!! :) xxx

    Dear Henry,
    That’s very Generous of you to give something that has held memories of your life for so long. I would know, I have only fond memories of my first car, a beautiful black 4 door Peugeot, so fast, luxuries. I know that Everyone is going to have a splendid time and the fund raising will be extremely successful. I wish that I could be there to see it. I was suppose to renew my gorilla adoption in August 2015, ( my plan is to renew it this Feb. 2016) but I renewed my nephew’s gorilla adoption, and adopted Ben instead . My nephew (10 yrs old)loves the Cavill conservation wrist band, it fits his hand nicely. I sent him a Big package, Ben’s photo, Indigo’s picture, Lee & you together, and all the goodies from the gorilla family adoption all at once. He was So excited, he called me right away when he got it. He was asking, “What does it mean, This is to certify that Elijah Thompson has adopted the gorilla family?” He was serious, I could tell from his tone. When I told him more about the work Durrell, and you do to care, raise awareness to preserve the Animal Kingdom, he was very happy, proud. May this year bring a multitude of blessings to Durrell Conservation, and you.
    Yours Truly,
    Olivia L Thompson

    Hi! I wish I would be there next may 15th but between my 24-36 hour marathon coding for my training (I’m doing a training to become webdeveloper) and my trip to Germany (scheduled months ago), unfortunately I can’t be in Jersey. I really wish I would! I saw a coverage about Durrell Wildlife park and the island of Jersey in august 2014 on french tv (for 100% mag tv show for M6) and it’s a place I’d like to visit.

    I wish Henry and Durrell all the best for this charity for this special day.

    And if Henry sees this message, I just want to thank him for all the passion and the dedication he puts in his work, not just as an actor, but as an ambassador for causes like this. And I’m crossing fingers to see him in France soon!

    Take care ! 😉
