Henry Cavill in his role as an Ambassador will be spending the day at Durrell.

Lee Durrell, Honorary Director of Durrell, believes this will be an important day for Durrell. She said, “We are fortunate in having an Ambassador who has become a household name, of course, but we’re doubly blessed because Henry is truly committed to the Durrell cause of saving species from extinction. He will inspire everyone he meets that day to back us. We are enormously proud of this on-going partnership, and all of us here are deeply appreciative of Henry’s dedication to and hard work for Durrell.”

The event aims to raise much-needed funds for Durrell so a special VIP invite is being extended to sponsors, prize-winners and high-achieving fundraisers. These guests will have access to the VIP tent where Henry will be based for most of the day. There will be food, a bar and live entertainment from some of Jersey’s top talent.
