Thank you to Ruth Harvey and Dan Wells, who will combine their Kili climb later this year with fund raising on behalf of local communities in Tanzania. Ruth tells us that TDT is a “great match with what we are trying to achieve”.
TDT would like to thank the family of the late Sheila Lovell, a great supporter of the Trust’s anti-FGM work, for setting up a fund raising page in her memory.
