The Tiger Day celebration at Shepreth Wildlife Park on Friday raised more than £2,000 and was deemed a “roaring success”.
The day was held to celebrate resident tiger Amba turning 19, and youngsters enjoyed tiger birthday cake, balloons, entertainers and even a tiger-sized pass-the-parcel hosted by Anton Wright, who’s currently appearing in reality survival programme Eden.
Park director Rebecca Willers said: “Tiger day was once again a super success, with lots of tiger fun and games all day.
“The charity raised more than £2,000 for the Tiger Protection and Conservation Unit, who spend their life trekking through the jungles of Sumatra saving the last remaining tigers left there.
“We would like to thank all our SWCC trustees, volunteers and staff for making the day so much fun, and of course our wonderful visitors for supporting us again this year.
