Conservatives team up to help Bristol charity working in West Africa

Bristol West Conservatives have been working together to help Bristol charity Ape Action Africa, which works on the front line of gorilla and chimp conservation in the rainforests of West Africa.

Graham Godwin-Pearson and Charles Lucas helped to organise a charity ball last night at Leigh Court, Bristol to raise vital funds, all of which go directly to Ape Action Africa's sanctuary in Cameroon.

The charity rescues and rehabilitates gorillas and chimps, both of which are being hunted into extinction, orphaned by the bushmeat trade, as well as working closely with local communities to assist with education and healthcare.
