Ardent Supporter Richard Davy walked the 'Two Moors Way' 100 miles across Devon for OVAID raising over £1000 and all in the week prior having to go into hospital!

 Sophie Brown and Hannah Mackins signed up for OVAID's Tour of Sumatra and as part of their fundraising efforts the pair climbed to the summit of Ben Nevis - Britain's highest mountain.

Congratulations girls - a fantastic effort for the orangutan!

             Dan Kitchener a long time supporter of OVAID completed :       

                         10 Marathons

                         1 Ultra Marathon

                         2 Half Marathons

      His medal total is shown below - not that we need proof but they do look spectacular.

During 2015/16 he personally raised almost £1500 for us - enough to purchase a whole anaesthetic machine and ancillaries !!


Our sincere thanks to Dan for his superhuman effort which has made such a difference for the orangutan. The anaesthetic machine will be placed at a centre which previously had no machine and will enable the vet team to conduct safe anaesthetic proceedures which were not possible before. A brilliant example of how our supporters efforts have such a direct, important and long lasting effect.


THANK YOU DAN from all the team at OVAID

Millie Brown  from Adelaide


Millie organised a Private Screening of Kate Winslet's new film 'The Dressmaker' at a local cinema - with more than 60 people attending

                    she raised over $1000 for OVAID!
















OVAID says a really big 'Thank You' to Millie for her effort and for helping us to provide more funds directly to the orangutan.


Sophie Brown

           Raised more than £1000 for OVAID in just 1 DAY !!


Sophie spent a month volunteering in Ketapang, Kalimantan and on her return decided to fundraise on our behalf:

















With her friends, a generous landlord and helpers she organised a fantastic fun day at her local pub - The Roebuck Inn, Harrietsham.


Organising  a raffle / car wash / barbeque / cake stall and evening party she single handedly raised 20% of the total needed for our Anaesthetic Machine No Pain-Our Aim Campaign!


She even persuaded the infamous Kristi Smith (volunteer facilitator in Ketapang) to travel all the way to Kent just to wash cars!!


A fantastic effort from Sophie which we really appreciated and it just shows what can be done.

Congratuations and a huge thank you Sophie for your determination and dedication!



Kristie travelled all the way from Australia to UK just to help Sophie Brown raise funds for OVAID!
Sophie raised more than £1000 in one day with a sponsored car wash, barbeque , raffle and cake stall!

           And all done whilst studying for her degree.          

          Thank you Sarah for such an outstanding effort

You will effectively be adopting an orangutan vet.
