~12th Of Never~

"Our lifetime adventure rolls on"....



Dear Cheryl and Bob,

 How extremely kind and good of you to come like Father Christmas to the Trust yesterday – to donate not only that brand new Microscope, but also a Portable one for the Tsavo Mobile Vet, the Infra-Red spotlight and all the necklaces and earrings for our Shop Table, not to mention the handsome sum of $2,000 in cash.   What angels you are for the Elephant Cause!  We are all so deeply touched by your steadfast support and commitment, the sincerity of your caring and such amazing generosity.   Words fail me to express our thanks adequately, but please know that it is from the heart and deeply sincere.  Bless you both.   All the help that comes our way has been never more needed than now when the Elephants, and the natural world generally, is under such immense threat and pressure.   Every item that you have given us will be incredible useful – the Microscope to enhance our diagnostic capabilities here and a very valuable addition to our Blood Machine, the portable one will enhance the field work of our Tsavo Mobile Veterinary Unit, and the Infra-red Night Vision Spotlight an incredible tool for the anti-poaching initiatives, particularly for use during ambushes etc.  (It turns out that we don’t actually have the infra-red goggles needed, but will get them).   I am sure all the jewellery will sell well at the Public Viewing Shop table with Christmas round the corner and the cash donation will benefit the Orphans’ Project by way of helping to pay for milk, medical and Veterinary needs, supplements etc., etc.   We are enormously grateful for everything, so bless you, and  thank you, very, very much indeed.

 I hope you enjoy your travels around Africa.   Keep safe and keep well and we look forward to seeing much more of you whenever you happen to be in town.   It was a great pleasure to have you back, and we look forward to many more “popping ins” in the future.

 With sincere gratitude and warmest thanks from us all.


Dear Cheryl

 The jewelry is selling really well – thank you! We only have 11 pieces left, which I think is mainly the smaller necklaces and a couple of earrings so it would be fantastic to have more!

 Did you see your picture on our facebook page? There was also a link through to your blog so there might be a few more people following your trip!
