Durrell Fundraiser: Henry To Be Special Guest At Siam Cup



We just got word that Henry will be attending the Siam Cup in Jersey, in support of Durrell Wildlife. Read the official press release with his statement. Much more to come!

Henry flies back to Jersey to spearhead Ipes Siam Cup rugby fundraiser for Durrell Conservation

One of Jersey RFC's best-known fans will be the VIP guest at the club's final game of the season, the annual Siam Cup clash against Guernsey on May 2nd. Superman actor Henry Cavill will be at St Peter in his role as an Ambassador for the Durrell Wildlife Conservation Trust, which is the focus of a major fund-raising day coinciding with the Ipes Siam Cup. Henry was announced as Durrell's first-ever Ambassador last August, stepping up to underline his personal enthusiasm for conservation by agreeing to support the work of Durrell both on his home Island and globally. He will be involved in a busy day that will include charity auctions for items such as exclusive tours of the Durrell Wildlife Park, signed prints and rare merchandise, a bucket collection and a chance to meet supporters.The Siam Cup's history dates back to 1920 and the trophy is competed for annually as the finale to the rugby season in the Channel Islands. This year's event, sponsored for the second time by specialist fund administrator Ipes, will feature four matches as the Caesareans host their Sarnian rivals in three men's matches - 1st team, 2nd team and Veterans - and the Ladies Siam.

Commenting on the event, Henry said: “Being a Rugby fan and someone who is keen on protecting the wildlife of this world (rugby players included) what better place to be than at the Siam Cup with Durrell Wildlife Conservation Trust? It sounds like it’s going to be a fantastic event! So I hope to see you all there. You'll find me about the grounds and clubhouse throughout the day, hopefully with a pint in hand!”

Jersey Chairman Bill Dempsey said he was delighted that Henry had accepted the invitation to attend the Siam Cup day. We've been hoping that Henry would be able to find room in his busy schedule to make it back to his home rugby club, he said. We're anticipating a big crowd, a fantastic atmosphere and the chance to raise some serious funds for the Durrell Wildlife Conservation Trust, a cause that is very close to his heart.

Dr Lee Durrell, Honorary Director of the Durrell Wildlife Conservation Trust, said: We are overjoyed to learn that our wonderful ambassador, Henry Cavill, will be in Jersey soon helping Durrell once more on home ground. We couldn't have asked for a more supportive, dedicated person to have made us his charity of choice. Tickets for the Ipes Siam Cup, priced £10 for adults are now available from Jersey RFC or via the JT Rewards website. Admission for JRFC members is £5, while under 18s will be admitted free.


We'll continue bringing you updates as we get closer to the event. In the meantime make sure to check out cavillconservation.com, where you can keep up with Henry's latest posts. While there you can also join Henry's gorilla family, by purchasing an adoption package that includes a signed pic by him. There are various options for you to choose from -- all benefiting the charity, so check them out!

  1. Henry's amazing, he is committed to Durell wildlife as well as the RM. He always makes time to give back no matter what. Can't say the same about other celebrity's, only a handful give back if that much. They can't see beyond themselves and they have the means to. Bravo to Henry for always giving of himself no matter how busy he is!

    5. Staff correct me if I'm wrong. You can go on the cavill conservation site and make your donations or adopt a animal, they also have, I think they still have like special signed photos of Henry, gift packets with your adopted animal all in different donation amounts so you can choose what gift packet you want. Or just make a donation. I don't remember if it was on Henry's site or directly at the Durells.

    7. Love it! - We still have bands that the charity sent us to help with the fundraising on Henry's just giving page. Ideas welcomed on how else we can help spread the word and send them out to those who pitch in to support Henry and the RMCTF.

    8. You can get them on the just giving page as well? I just sent for some on the Royal Marines shop. Good to know, someone asked me if the RM shop was the only place to get them.
      Cool beans River, thanks sharing. What comic did you pick up by the way?

    1. Which I'm sure he will spend with his lovely family in Jersey. A real treat for Henry as his work schedule made it difficult for him to do so in the past few years. *happy!*
