Record breaking support of Black & White Day


This Page/Nixon-Street-Primary.jpgThank You - Over $26,000 was raised in 2015! Nixon Street Primary School community in Devonport raised an amazing $461.65 to support the Save the Tasmanian Devil Appeal.  

 

Their fundraising day was organised through the SRC Representatives with children encouraged to wear something black and white to school and make a gold coin donation.  In the lead up to the day students learnt all about the endangered Tasmanian mammal.

 

Through their ongoing support Nixon Street Primary School have now raised over $1,000 for the Devil Appeal and has become a member of the University of Tasmania Foundation which provides permanent recognition of their support of the University.

 

Black & White Day allows schools, businesses and community groups to show their support for the Tasmanian devil.

 

Save the Tasmanian Devil Appeal’s Manager, Rebecca Cuthill, says, 'The $26,000 raised in 2015 from over 100 schools and businesses is a record and we are incredibly grateful for this show of support!'

 

“This money has now been committed to fund a range of cutting-edge research and conservation projects for our Tassie devil which will run across the next twelve months,” she added.

 

With a possible vaccine in sight, fundraising for our Tassie devil has never been so important and in 2016 the Devil Appeal is calling on all supporters to help with this critical project and secure the future for the Tasmanian devil ….
