On the 1st June 2001, Pollyanna was proud to officially launch her own charitable organisation, the Pollyanna Pickering Foundation.
For many years Pollyanna has been a committed conservationist, and she dedicated fifteen years of her life to caring for sick and injured wildlife in her own bird sanctuary. In recent years she has donated a percentage of sales form her exhibitions to organisations involved in animal welfare and conservation.
The formation of the Foundation has enabled her to extend her fund -raising to benefit animals world wide, and offer further support to wildlife sanctuaries and hospitals in Britain. Pollyanna hopes that the Foundation will also be able to continue this work in the future should she be unable to have any active involvement herself.
The Foundation had its official international launch at a celebratory event on the 9th June with guests attending from as far afield as Holland, Portugal and Japan, as well as many friends and colleagues from the UK who have helped and encouraged Pollyanna's conservation work
Pollyanna is however committed to continuing her work with the other charities she is proud to be involved with, including Bill Jordan's Wildlife Defence Fund, Raptor Rescue and Naturewature. See Charities for further informtaion about ongoing campaigns.
