Supporting animals in Africa
THE first in a string of fundraising events organised by a conservationist from Hyde to help protect endangered animals in South Africa was a roaring success.
Demini Aves, 34, held a night of music and food at the Stables Tearoom in Hyde, which raised £550 towards her £3,000 target.
Her six-week journey to the South African Savannah starts on February 3 and will involve helping with the conservation of the big five – lion, elephant, rhino, buffalo and leopard – as well as clean-up operations and road maintenance and repairs within the reserve.
And while she is at the game reserve, she will help at the Holy Family Orphanage and at a low-resource farm school.
She said: “I want to raise as much money as I can because I want to be able to give additional funds to both schools.”
Anyone who would like to support Ms Aves can contact her on 01425 655392.
