Eighteen months ago, James decided that he would like to spend his pocket money adopting an orangutan and done this through WWF. He also received an adoption of another orangutan from a family friend for his birthday. Along with some friends, who shared the same enthusiasm, they approached their school to hold a bake sale. The bake sale was well received and raised over £72.
Mum Jane Henderson said: “James and his friends are actively encouraging family and friends to avoid products that contain palm oil, which itself is quite challenging as palm oil is contained in so many everyday products you wouldn’t expect. These small acts of change can make a huge difference to these beautiful animals.”
