The Durrell Challenge: "You All Have Made A Big Difference"



It was a wonderful day of friendship, fitness, and fan support. Hundreds of people joined Henry at The Durrell Challenge and Fun Day that followed earlier this month in Jersey, with all fundraising going to help Durrell save endangered animals around the world. Henry spoke to us about what your support means to him and the charity, and he echoed those sentiments in an updated message on his JustGiving page where many donated and left him messages of support:  

I Just wanted to thank you all for your overwhelming generosity and at such late notice too! You have all made a big difference here in donating to Durrell. They are so incredibly grateful as well for all of your commitment to the cause! Thank you all so so much, you guys and gals are the best!!

Among the fans that helped make The Durrell Challenge a success, were the volunteers who got up bright and early to take their spots along the race route. The very lovely Nella was among them, and she later took these great pics of Henry as he met with fans, and conducted the raffle for his first car. You can see them all in HQ (almost 100 photos!) in the gallery below. Thank you so much for letting us share them with you guys. If you repost, please credit: itsacoffeeshop.tumblr.com.

Here's our video of Nella and a few other fans getting their photo taken with Henry at Durrell Wildlife


Look for our final wrap this weekend!
